Isn't it crazy how many things can make a day go south, yet so little can cheer us up? Once I get it in my head that I am stressed or frustrated, it's easier to stay that way. But, I'm hurting everyone around me. An instant relief for our home is to have a spontaneous dance party. I L O V E to dance. Not pretty uniform dancing, but the rock-out-mom-hands-shake your-booty kind of dancing.
The majority of our dancing shenanigans happen in the car, but we also love a good living room showdown. We live outside of town and our commute is about 20-25 minutes depending on where we are going, most of which are spent singing at the top of our lungs and pushing the dancing limitations that a confined space, seatbelt, and car seat can bring.
I thought it would be fun to give you our dance party playlist. We LOVE music. We love to chill & listen, dance, sing, and rock out. It just depends on the mood.
OUR TOP 5 DANCE PARTY SONGS.
I have to mention that our kids don't know all of these songs, but they are ones I grew up listening to.
Whoop there it is by Tag Team
Can't stop the feeling by Justin Timberlake (Trolls)

Groove is in the Heart by Deee-Lite
Fat Bottomed Girl by Queen
One thing I love about music are the memories they hold without you knowing it. We recently took a trip to Fredericksburg, Texas (6 hour trip) and at the end of our drive home, the kids were on edge. We flipped on 90's on 9 and without planning it, we began singing and dancing like we were teens again. The kids love watching me and Ryan act silly. Parenting is tricky. I believe if we don't show our kids how to have fun, be weird and shift a mindset, they won’t know how to do it in their adult years.
