This is what our afternoons usually look like…
My kids love to play dress up! We have a chest upstairs that is quite literally overflowing with costumes, and after their nap both kids will go straight for it! Usually it is princess or fairy themes that come out, but sometimes they will surprise me with cowboy, chef, or vet. They simply love it.
And what do we do once their beautiful outfits are on? We head downstairs and put on our favorite music compilation and dance, dance, dance! I can officially sing all of the lyrics to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (I can even spell it! Lol), as well as scream along to John Jacob Jingleheimerschmidt! And that is only naming a few of the songs on this favorite kids playlist. We hear it e-v-e-r-y day, sometimes more than once. The kids love it though, and they run around in circles dancing every time it comes on.
I feel like it is one of my super secret Mom tricks, how to keep your kids entertained and happy, while I get to basically do nothing but watch (aka – relax)! Squeals of delight always commence, and that brings a smile to any mother’s face. But my favorite part may be that they do it in costume…I mean, how cute is that?! After all, I like to dress up before I go out dancing too – lol.
