Today I am thankful that my daughter has the same love of music, singing and dancing that I do.  It allows us to have fun and free moments like when Mariah Carey’sAll I Want For Christmas Is You” came on Pandora this afternoon and I said, “This is one of Mommy’s favorites!”

Maya replied, “Me, too!!” and started shaking her tush and attempting to sing all of the words (but mostly getting the chorus).  We both danced and sang like fools until the song was over…and did it again every time it came on rotation.  I love that she feels the joy in song and is able to express it so freely…and for that, I am grateful.
