Caitlin saw Dancing With the Stars for the first time Monday. Clearly a spark was ignited deep down within her 4-year-old soul. So far I’ve sheltered her from watching much dirty dancin’ on TV. Lawrence Welk on Saturday night just doesn’t do much for her and when mama shakes her booty to Justin Timberlake while emptying the dishwasher, she’s not exactly witnessing dance in its most artistic form.
Our favorite dancers this week were Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough, who had the top score for with perfect 10s across the board. After watching them samba like two cats in heat, Caitlin’s been shimmying throughout the house and singing, “I like to mole it, mole it!” When I correct her and say, “it’s move it, move it!” she just gives me that “whatever, mom” look. So, mole it, it is. Or maybe she’s singing “I like the mullet, mullet?”
Here’s some of my favorite commentary from Caitlin as she watched Dancing With the Stars:
Are they married?
You have to be married to dance like that?
and because she is definitely mama’s girl,
I love those sparkly shoes!
As you can see, she’s ready for Broadway.
