I could have danced all night

Saturday, May 06, 2006

Friends of ours had a sock-hop tonight so we could dance on their renovated hardwood floor before the carpet was laid back down. Mr. C stayed home due to the broken elbow and someone needed to stay with the babe, so my most wonderful recently-turned five year old was my "date". He loves to dance (Fred is his nickname) and our hosts played old albums on their ancient record player. Why is no one else dancing, he asked...the adults all stood talking along the edges of the room.

Of course I danced with him, but you can't see photos of that, unfortunately...

Eventually, he decided that just the two of us dancing was not so much fun, so he settled in to work on a puzzle book.

Little boy on a big floor.

Rolling out the carpet. It was a rather odd night, but fun. My son is amazing; there are not enough superlatives in this world to describe him. A perfectly wonderful person to spend the evening with, among an eclectic group of adults.

    There is just not a better way to have fun and let go of all your emotions is to get out there and dance. Your son looks like he was just a great partner. Too bad you live so far away. I would love to borrow him and take him out dancing sometime.lol

    Take care,
    Connie

    he looks so lovely, in his world but also not oblivious to other people's worlds. You are very lucky. He is a great kid. xxxxxxx

    Sounds like a great night.

    But why would someone cover up such a gorgeous hardwood floor?

    That's a great floor, I love wooden floors and when they're new...it's a different thing!
    I hate carpets simply because they cover the floor.

    What a great time! I always said 5-year-olds make the very best dates. Why? Because they'll ALWAYS dance! I love the sock-hop idea! I'll totally throw one when we get the floors finished!

    (IF we ever get the floors finished...)

    Take care, Meow

    Looks like a fun night with the perfect dancing partner! Hope he keeps that love for dancing as he gets older - too many people end up losing it when they "grow up."
