Emma and I did something new today: Zumbini. It is a combination of music, singing, dancing, and instruments. As a retired dance instructor (25 years), I found nothing new or innovative about it, but Emma had a blast and that’s really all that mattered. It immediately reminded me that I am SO thankful to be retired. I have spent many hours with little ones like that, dancing, singing, shouting, smiling, sweating, trying desperately to engage them in the planned activity, when all the while, they’re just gonna do what they feel like doing. It is beyond exhausting. Today, I was thrilled to be on the other side watching my daughter blossom and thrive!
