Shake Your Booty

Ivie takes nightly baths, but Macie is still on an every-other-night schedule (though she's in the toddler class now, and they go outside for recess, so we'll probably need to move to nightly very soon...). While Dale handles Ivie-only nights in her bathroom, on "double-bath nights", I'm in charge in our big bathtub.

At the end of these baths, Dale comes in to help with the toweling off process. He always picks Macie up first and shakes her gently back and forth to get the excess water off, singing "Shake, shake, shake... shake, shake, shake... shake your booty, shake your booty, yeah!". Macie has grown to expect this from Dale, and as soon as he picks her up, she gets a big grin on her face, anticipating the "dancing" that comes next.

Yesterday afternoon, as we were finishing up bath, Dale walked into the room and we let the girls play a bit longer, just sitting watching them. Macie was standing at the side of the tub, with her back to us, and Dale randomly started singing "Shake your Booty" to her. She looked over her shoulder at him, and then started dancing, bouncing up and down. It was too funny - I'm so excited that she's entering that stage where she loves to dance to music. I wish I'd have had the Flip with me to catch it on video - maybe next time!

Cute! We hum the "Superman" theme song every time we get Carson out of the tub. His eyes light up and he giggles. Gotta love it!
