It may seem like a small, silly thing, but TJ and I have a date every evening around 5:00 pm. I say around 5:00 pm because we have to rewind to the beginning of Wild Kratts on our DVR after he gets home from my mother-in-law’s house. If you aren’t familiar with Wild Kratts, it’s a mostly-animated series on PBS Kids that teaches children about wild animals that you’ve probably never heard of. (What’s a remora? My son knows.)
But the point of my story here is that, for about 20 seconds every afternoon, TJ and I have “our moment.” When the Wild Kratts theme song comes on, he pulls me up out of my chair to dance with him. The two of us have terrible dancing skills, but it’s the enthusiasm that counts. We dance like crazy people and shout the words CREATURE POWER at the appropriate line of the theme song.
“Mommy, come on! We gotta dance!”
It can be music to my ears after a long, stressful day.
