To All the Loony-Goonies


Yesterday, we had a dance party throughout the house. Like, an out-of-breath, hysterically laughing, gonzo wackadoo dance party. 

Blasting a totally rad Mo-town mix, we just got doooown. The girls were laughing so hard they both got hiccups. I was sure someone would barf, but there was just no stoppin' the groove, man.Ya dig?

This craze-a-mundo dance sesh was just what I needed this week- freeing, exhilarating, completely strange and silly to the max. 

Sometimes, a crazy, crooked dance party interjection is just what you need to get straight.

It so reminds me of one of my favorite childhood poems, by the silliest author in the whole wide world.  
Read it...and then go be wonderfully weird. Because, yes.

PUT SOMETHING IN

Draw a crazy picture, 
Write a nutty poem,
Sing a mumble-gumble song,
Whistle through your comb.
Do a loony-goony dance
'Cross the kitchen floor.
Put something silly in the world
That ain't been there before.

-Shel Silverstein

Here's to sweet silliness, my friends!
Go get loony-goony!

Her teensy femer is about the length of Mel's thumb. She's the cutest lil' baby you could POSSIBLY imagine. Aaaaaand, here go the tears again...arg! She let out one sweet LL cry while I was there, and it was the BEST cry in the world. Everything about LL is the best in the world... When you see K&M with that baby- your heart might must explode. Really. It makes me wanna DANCE. Dance party?!?
