My two toddlers decided to breakdance this evening. Their teenage sister put on the ‘polish dancing cow song’.
It is a pop-ish song in polish with male singers. I have no idea it’s actual title, the band name, or meaning, only that my two littles saw the video of the dancing cow and thought it was hilarious.
They will moo upon hearing the first few beats of music and within seconds begin to dance. It’s a combination of butt wiggles and moves on the floor that really do resemble breakdancing. I found it remarkably amusing, up until the 3rd repeat of the song and my kids ramping up from fatigue. At that point I played parent and put an end to music and spaz, sending them to begin their bedtime rituals.
I’m not sure my 2.5 yr old even made it to story time. Her big sister did diaper and clothes change and wrapped her into bed as she weakly protested.
I had already made cozy with kitties in front of the fire, and watched protests from a distance. My husband then took over for their storytime, meditation, and go to sleep music. Peace returned.
I spent the next hour sitting on the sofa with two of my four cats nestled either side of my lap. What had started as a roaring fire gradually died down and retreated to coals.
At that point I peeled myself away from kitties and began my bedtime rituals myself. My buddy cat decided that was a great time to move to the recliner and sprawl.
May you have cute and cuddly evenings with your kids &/or pets. May you have an enjoyable holiday season. May you find your home comforting and warm. May you know you are loved.
