Three Times I Love to Dance

- When I am playing Just Dance.  Yes its absurd, and I look like an idiot because the part of your brain that allows your arms to move opposite your legs is not fully developed in me, and I am pretty sure it never will be.  So I flail a bit.  Luckily it mostly tracks you right arm, so I can still get decent scores.

- When the music is cranked up and the kids and I are all dancing around like crazy.  I did this a lot more when the girls I baby-sat were little than I do now.  My foster daughters are to old (6,9,10) to be super amused by it, and didn't grow up doing it so they would probably laugh with me.  My son isn't big on doing what you want him to do, when you want him to do it, even if it is fun like dancing around like a maniac, so I think I would be dancing by myself.  I might try it again and see what he does, but I don't count on it being fun like it was with the girls.

- When a slow song comes on while my son and I are listening to music and I stop what I am doing and pick him up and snuggle him while we dance.  Little Guy is two, so he isn't as cuddly as he used to be.  Most of the time the only way he is cuddly for very long is after he has gotten in trouble.  But most of the time, if we are listening to music and I stop to dance with him, he is happy to snuggle the whole song.  


  1. Visiting from Five Minute Friday- I like your post. Love the idea of you dancing with your son to the slow songs.

  2. I love this! My little guy is two years old too. And nothing beats those little snuggles. How precious that he'll snuggle for the whole slow song. What a moment to cherish!

  3. Rachel,
    I'm so so glad you stopped by (and gave me your link) so I could return the favor. Your post is a joy to read! We are often too serious and don't let ourselves be silly and "just dance". By the way...that was my favorite line. "It mostly tracks your right arm". I'm giggling and laughing just thinking about "Father Abraham...right arm, left arm..." And then I'm thinking about the real Abraham trying to play "Just Dance" in his robes, and then I'm thinking about even Abraham Lincoln trying to play "Just Dance" and I'm laughing even harder. I mean them no disrespect, but you really brought joy to my day!
    I hope you continue to dance. All the time, and unashamed. May your heart be light and filled with Joy!

    1. Now I am picturing the Abrahams playing Just Dance. And it is epically hilarious :)

  4. I love your description, I see it - flailing and maniac - and I love the beauty of the moment...a gift to your children seeing their mama-dance! Blessings! Visiting from Missional Women.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
