So he thinks he can dance

Filed under: Uncategorized — by mvmommy @ 5:32 pm

Today Andrew woke up from his nap a bit earlier than Justin. So it was some alone time for me and him. I was trying to make the most of it, but he wanted to watch ‘a little show’. So I gave in, and decided that if he’s going to watch TV… maybe I would put on something I wanted to watch. So I turned on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’. My thought was, we are going to a wedding this weekend… he could brush up on a few moves and show them off.

So we watched two couples dance, before he got bored. There were a few mild questions asked through the whole thing. For example, at one part the guy fell on top of the girl on the ground for a Hip Hop Dance… Andrew asked if he was squishing her, and why. And then during the Jazz performance, the guy was doing flips and all sorts of exciting acrobatics. Once he lept over his partner and did a somersault. This resulted in Andrew quickly looking at me and saying, ‘What did he do that for!!!’. He was very excited about it all since he had just been learning them in gymnastics, but not excited enough to keep watching. He still requested Barney instead.

A few hours later, Justin woke up. We were upstairs and Andrew was doing some crazy dance moves. I asked him what he was doing and he said ‘dancing like the man’. I started to laugh. He was jumping and trying to do a somersault and flip around door frames. It was hilarious.

But the kicker was when he actually saw Justin sitting on the ground and tried to leap over him into a somersault. Seriously, he was trying to to the exact move he just saw on TV. Justin was almost taken out by the low flying leap. And Andrew almost landed on his head. But both boys thought they were hilarious.

I just thought…. so much for letting my child watch a safe non-child-endangering dancing show. I guess we go back to the stupid Purple Dinosaur again.
