Ba De Ya

31 Mar

A relaxing weekend with the girls…


That is funny right.


Playing with the girls.

Let’s get them moving a bit

and away from Dora.


So I turn on some tunes

Little Earth Wind & Fire

(I like to be current on my tunes.)


Do you remember?

21st night of September

Ba de ya de ya


What did that even mean?

Ba de ya?


But I am in to it


Little booty shake…


hair sweep…


Screeching some may say.




Ba de ya de ya

Ba de ya is my favorite part




Ba de ya de ya   whooo





Ba de ya de ya

Do you remember the
21st night of September?
Love was… watermelon watermelon

I can’t remember the words here.  Just say watermelon over and over…

no one will know

not even in Church.




“Honey!! What is it? This is one of Mommy’s favorite songs.”



I be so serious…

Can you do dat somewhere else?

It is just…

so not good”




I mean I realize that I am not a fantastic dancer.

And that most of my “moves” are nothing more than a lateral slide right, then left

Occasional pivot turn…

With a periodic whoop whoop to the roof.


I thought I had a few years…

maybe til they were 11 or 12

Until I was such an embarrassment.

It is not like I a dance like Elaine.

    Ha! The Elaine dance. No, I don’t think anything is as bad as the Elaine dance. Funny post.

    One of my favorites too, Kelly! When the girls were younger they got a healthy dose of EWF, including watching a ‘By Request’ special on A&E with them. Dancing on the floor and couch while singing along. Their version of the chorus on September was alternately ‘Oleo’ or ‘Oreo’, both sung just to annoy their father! Thanks for the reminder of some great times with my girls!

    Wow Kel, that is bad. I would have thought you’d have more years of cool mom factor for dancing around with your kiddos. Clearly this is not the case. Maybe they are just ahead of their time and you should stop letting them watch DWTS.

    Ellery has suffered through EWF as well – I KNEW I love your taste, but being just pre-verbal she digs it (though not as much as the Bieber, unfortunately)
