Rhythm - Simple and Slow Fridays

This whole week I've been wondering what on earth I'm going to write about on the topic of rhythm. You see, I have none. I'm still amazed that I made the varsity cheerleading squad in high school. I worked VERY HARD, though. I can barely tap my foot and clap at the same time and sometimes I get off rhythm just with clapping alone. No, I don't think I can dance. :)

Well... except for the one dance I created almost three years ago. It included moving forward and backwards, side to side, bopping up and down, and swaying.


Oh, and I held at least 10 pounds while doing the dance.

No joke.

This dance was the craziest thing my body has ever come up with. But it had a purpose. And it worked. Well. So well, I even taught Jeff and my mom how to do the dance because:

It put my colicky baby, Nathan, to sleep for the first 5 months of his life.

I have no video or pictures of me doing this dance. In fact there are very few pictures from the colic days; it was just a struggle to get through the day.

So, I guess in the end, when it counts most...

I got rhythm; who could ask for anything more?

That is too funny, as I know that dance very well! I do the exact same thing with Rose when she's overstimulated and needs sleep :)
We were at a potluck last night and my friends were teasing me-that I'll be doing the "dance" so much, eventually I'll be doing it without even knowing it-baby or no baby :)
