Dancin Feet

Emma loves to dance. This week, John is home with Emma as I am working extra as this is a busy time of year for me at work and John is done with school. One of the things that Emma loves to do with John is go up and down the escalator at Macy's. Yesterday, John was taking her on one of these trips to the escalator and our favorite Christmas song came on over the loud speaker at Macy's. Emma stopped in her tracks and started to "shake it". She then looked up at John very intently and put out her hand. John figured she wanted to go up the escalator again so he took her hand and started leading her toward the escalator but she wouldn't budge. He let go and asked her what she wanted. She put out her hand again as if she wanted to go and then wouldn't budge. John said she did this over and over until he got down on her level and asked her what she wanted for the 5th time. She grabbed both of his hands and started to "shake it". She wanted to dance with her daddy. So John said they danced in Macy's for a while and then she was ready to go...How sweet is that story????
