I’m participating in the Back2Blogging Event with:
My very first Blog Post was written in 2006 about my oldest daughter. She is now five years old….still very much into music and dancing.
My Daughter has a love of music. She sways, bounces and flings her arms in the air to anything musical. She does not discriminate. She loves Sesame Street, the Oscar Mayer commercials, and Mommy’s booty rap. All music inspires my girl to bounce her tush or sway her arms around. It is so adorable and free. I say to her, “That’s right Jordan, Dance! Dance!” She looks at me with her beautiful round eyes, that are the spitting image of her Daddy’s, smiles excitedly and continues her bouncing….(dancing).
Sometimes we dance together. I scoop her up into my arms and we rock back and forth, cheek to cheek to whatever moves us on the radio. It warms my heart and has made otherwise average days, beautiful and more spectacular.
Today, she and I danced together standing in front of one another. This is new for us, because she just started walking and now has the ability to dance while standing. Prior to this week, her dancing consisted of being held by me while she moved her arms up and down or bouncing from a sitting position, swaying her arms back and forth, up and down. Now, well, she is a pro! She stands, bounces on her legs AND sways her arms all at the same time. My growing girl is growing to fast. I only hope she will continue to dance with me as she gets older.
…this was my kickoff post into the blogging world. Unfortunately…I only wrote a couple more times that year (In My Daughter’s Eyes and Wild Horses) and then took a very LONG hiatus….I love looking back like this. It inspires me to continue documenting my journey as a mother and otherwise…..
Reasons I like this post…..
***It focused on one of my favorite things about my daughter at that age
***I wrote in a way that you can picture whats happening
Something I would change….
***Add a picture of my Luv Bug at that age!
***I would also space out the post a little more for affect and maybe change the fonts to make it easier to read.
