Happiness is your first dance recital!

The Daily Post Photo Challenge

Jubilant, adjective: showing great joy, satisfaction, or triumph; rejoicing; exultant.

You could have cut the jubilant energy in this dressing room with a knife! These little girls and boys were beside themselves with excitement, giggles, and tons of pride as they experienced their first ever dance recital. And it was certainly contagious for all of their family and friends. We hooted and hollered together in the audience and as they tapped and tip-toed like pros! The celebration lasted long into the afternoon and all weekend with lunch, ice cream, flowers, and tons of hugs, kisses, and accolades. This mama was beaming with pride!

Congratulations, Emma! Dance on, my love.

Mindful Moments with Kira Willey

Thank you to Sugar Mountain PR for my complimentary copy of “Mindful Moments for Kids” in exchange for this review.

Kira Willey was born with a voice for the special work she does. She is happy, inspiring, and compassionate as she leads children through 30 short mindful activities. Some are geared toward calming, some are meant to energize, but all of them play such an important role in a child’s day and life.

“Listen to the Bell” inspires focus and attention while the bell rings and then slowly fades away. The imagery evoked during “Bunny Breath” is adorable. I can just see the quick, short breaths of the bunny and know that children will too. “Do Nothing Moment” is a fabulous way to finish the collection of activities, sending the message that doing nothing is not only OK, but sometimes necessary.

Two bonus tracks, “Dance for the Sun” and “Just Be” conclude the album with sweetness and love. Kira’s CD comes out on Friday January 15th! Enjoy Mindful Moments with your children at home or in school and watch the happiness unfold!
