I have always enjoyed that when I go to my sister's house, she has music on. Either someone's ipod or a radio station is playing. And then there is spontaneous dancing by everyone when we are cooking, or eating or just talking. That is how we grew up, and I have a lot of memories of dancing (texas swing and the 2step) with my daddy in the kitchen. So fun. And now, so touching.
My siblings and I know a ton of old country songs, tons of Motown and 60s music. We can sing along with a lot of songs. And I think that is because they were always the background to everything. Chris is amazed at the oldies we can lipsynch to.
Well, there is a quick fix for that! All of this week I've been playing Pandora Radio on the computer as soon as the kids and I walk in the door. It's been pretty noisy and a whole other level of chaos in the house, but the benefits outweigh those. I hope that this will become one of those habits that just become routine.
