Sweet Buns and Mad Dancers

I've included a picture so you will get the full effect of what I'm about to tell you.

Every day I open the blinds (and on cool days, the windows) to reveal the bright sunshine (hopefully), and let a little light into our humble abode so the kids and I don't feel so cooped up. As you can see in the picture, we have three rather large windows, open wide for the world to see. {You can also see Braden near passed out on the couch after a long morning! But I digress.}

I've always wondered if I shouldn't open them so wide, leaving our comings and goings of the day vulnerable, but I know our neighbors are older and would enjoy watching the kids run around and play. (They will just have to get over watching me exercise too.)

Avery has always enjoyed dancing around to loud, crazy music, and now Braden has joined in the liking. This morning, I had the "Awesome 80s" cd blasting. The kids were enjoying themselves so much that I decided to join in the dancing.

Let's make a note that I was not just dancing.

I was jumping around like a crazy person with A.D.H.D. Arms were flailing, legs were kicking, booty was shaking....because it made the kids laugh. I was zapped straight out of the Seinfeld episode where Elaine tries to dance.

It was during this madness that I felt like someone was watching me. As I continued to convulse, I looked out the window, only to catch the eye of our ever so friendly, walking mail man. Oh yes. You read right. He was less than three feet away from me, and we made eye contact for a full three seconds.

He was laughing. Hard.

Then I realized the kids were rolling on the floor laughing, so it looked as if I was the only one dancing around like a chicken with its head cut off.



In other news, Avery asked me if I would "fix her hair like Cinderella's." So I've included a picture of her cute little bun.



I love it! That's halarious! I can picture it now. The things we do for our kids, huh? We're willing to make complete fools are ourselves just to make them happy. :)


meant fools OF ourselves...I'm sure you knew what I meant. :)

You know this if funnier to me than to anybody! I knew where this story was going as soon as I saw the open curtains. Also, I know your mailman well. Trust me, that is not the best story back at the office. Thank you for sharing.

That is hilarious! The exact same thing actually happened to me in college, except I didn't have the excuse of entertaining kids, and it was in front of the whole third floor of our dorm. Most embarrassing moment ever! I'm laughing thinking of how your mailman must have looked.

Oh, and great Cinderella hair-do!

That is too funny!!! I was just about to say I bet my dad has seen funnier. Oh and Avery's bun is so cute! I used to LOVE getting my hair up in a bun because it made me feel like a ballerina. :-)
