So, I’m not that good about sharing in the moment. Guess it’s why I haven’t bothered with a twitter account. But I do like to note some of the special moments I get to have with the kids. This one has no actual video or picture, though I wish it did.
Here’s the scene:
We were watching the Sound of Music Live and “16 going on 17″ began.. Ian came in and looked at the TV and then twirled around like the couple dancing. Kenneth and I laughed. This was really cute because Ian doesn’t dance spontaneously. THEN he walked over to me and offered me his hand and pulled me off my stool and began to spin around hand in hand with me to the music. I was speechless. What mother doesn’t want her son to offer her his hand for a dance? And it was an added bonus for me because one of my many hopes for Ian has been to see him really dance, like little kids do: free and wild. It may have been a bit choreographed, but what spontaneity! I love my little man.
