Dancing in the Rain and a Monday Minute

I hope you all had a happy Independence Day. I certainly did. Despite the nasty rainy weather, we had great BBQ with friends. The rain let up just long enough for us to start the parade, then the skies opened up.  So, there we are looking like swamp rats on a float, throwing beads out to people that we can't see because of the pelting rain, dancing, and laughing our asses off the whole time! At one point #2 yells "I'm dancing in the rain!" and she was dancing like a maniac!Like a maniac maniac on the floor, and she's dancing like she's never danced before.♪  (Michael Sembello)

And, I was so proud of her for just letting loose and having fun with it. Too often, I see the other #2, the IhatetheworldI'mateen #2, but thankfully, that girl was somewhere else while we danced in the rain. ♪I hope you daaaaaaaaance...I hope you dance♪ (LeeAnn Womack)

Later, she told me that she's always wanted to dance in the rain, that it's on her bucket list because I've never let her play in the rain. Well, of course, I haven't, we live in the lightning capital of the world...it's not safe and you might get sick...I'm such a mean mom! LOL!

And, now... it's the Monday Minute (you know the theme song, go ahead and sing it!)
