The Dance of Joy


Somebody posted this little video on their blog today. They were happy about having a quilt accepted for a show. I was babysitting today and thought Sofia might be amused so I called her over to the computer to watch it. She thought it was hilarious and we watched it about five times. Then she grabbed my hand and said, "Grandma! We need to do the dance of joy!" And she proceeded to teach me the dance, singing "Hi, hi, hi, hi!" and leaping into my arms at the end. We laughed so hard we had tears running. I tell you there is nothing like a three-year-old. I have been teaching her to write her name and we have been drawing together and she teaches me things like the dance of joy.

  3. I showed the video to my 8 and 11 year olds and they were totally not into it. They just kind of looked at my blankly when it was over. Ug... I guess "tweens" have more sophisticated taste. Ahem.

  4. My husband and I LOVED this show when it was originally aired and "Now we do the dance of joy" has been part of our vocabulary since!!! Thanks for reminding me.
