Desirae the Dancer

I got some new hip scarves in the mail today. I, of course, had to try them on as soon as I opened them up. Well, Desirae was there with me and her being the girl she is and wanting anything sparkly or jingly just had to have one. I was a little reluctant because they are a bit fragile and could break easily. But I gave in and tied her up in one. She was so excited. She just loved the noise the coins made. She jumped and wiggled and spun and twisted all over the kitchen. When I tried to take it off she threw quite the tantrum. She has been sick and grumpy all day so I gave in instead of giving her another reason to cry. I just hope I can get it off of her before bed tonight or, better yet, before Gary gets home. He has asked me not to teach her any belly dancing. Does encouraging her to jump and dance with the scarf on constitute "teaching" at her age? Well, what he doesn't know wont hurt him...right???

What he doesn't know won't hurt him?!!! Doesn't the man read your blog?
She does seem a little young for such an activity don't you think? But you are right, she is really cute all dressed up.
You know they say...we all eventually turn into our mothers (for girls) and fathers (for boys). Scary huh?

I say "you're never to young(or old) to start dancing! Even belly dancing! She sure is a girl! What did Gary say when you told him? You did tell him, right?
