Last night, my son & I were watching the second hour of Dancing with the Stars that I had recorded on Monday night. It was movie score night. He has watched the show with me a couple times this season, so he recognizes a few of the dancers. The first couple he saw dance last night was Maks & Hope. They were dancing to the Toy Story theme….
6: Why are they dancing to this?
Me: It’s movie theme night. Every couple dances to a different movie song.
6: Gasp! Did they already do Mickey and Beauty & the Beast???
Me: Not Disney sweetie, just movies.
Then later, as the next dancers were dancing (Rob & Cheryl maybe?):
6: Is it always boy/girl dancing together or can there be boy/boy or girl/girl?
Me: Only boy/girl on this show (I am NOT prepared to explain Chaz, yet).
Me: That’s just what they do on this show. But I’m sure when you get older & have school dances, you will see boys & girls dancing with each other because there are lots of different people and couples in the world, right?
I love how accepting he is.
Then, during the scoring of Ricki & Derrick:
6: Wow! Is that the first 10 of the year???
He’s so damn observant, that boy.
Later, it was time for bed, but it was right before the last couple’s scores……
6: I want to stay up to see the scores!
Me: No, it’s late. Up to bed, now.
6: Will you tell me the scores in the morning?
After he is in bed, I come downstairs & watch the end where they say the scores, and I see a head peek out of his room….
6: Ha ha, I heard the scores!
Me: Go. To. Bed.
Oh, and then he treated me to this vocal gem all night as well:
“All the other kids with the rum ba dum, gotta bum da da bum, faster than my bubbles.”
(that would be Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People, in case you didn’t actually recognize the alternate lyrics). 🙂
Love that kid!
