Dancing Dads

February 13th 2007

So what makes grown men dance wildly on the dance floor…repeatedly spelling out the letters to Y.M.C.A., swinging their hips and hands to the Macarena, and literally barking out loud to “Who Let the Dogs Out?”

The annual “Daddy Daughter Valentine’s Dance” of course, and me and our youngest daughter were front and center laughing as we danced to all the songs.

I’m just glad they didn’t play the mambo!  Now that would have been a sight to see.

What was an awesome sight, though, was seeing all these fathers spending a few quality hours with their daughters dancing, taking pictures, putting together an arts and crafts project, and enjoying dinner together.

As we often hear in the commercials, priceless!

My seven-year-old daughter turned to me at one point during the evening and asked, “Daddy, can we do this again next year?” I smiled and said, “Of course,” knowing full well there will come a time when I won’t receive that question.

But until then, I’ll continue to enjoy our annual Daddy Daughter Valentine’s Dance.
