The 4°Clock Dance Rule…

The winter months are always a struggle for me, not because of the cold, just because of the husbands work hours. I cant complain to much, some people don’t see there husbands for months on end due to there work. But the summer months I am ridiculously spoilt! 8am till 4pm four days a week! so the long winter shifts are a drag, so I came up with a rule to have a 4°Clock dance rule. Come 4°Clock if I am at home the music goes on and we all dance round to

  1. Wear us all out
  2. Pass the time
  3. Keep me sane (If I have to watch anymore CBeebies then I dread to think what will become of me!)

Normally by the time the dancing is finished, I am sashaying my way to the kitchen to dish up dinner, then its bath time and before I know it the husband is walking through the door, and then its BED! Its surprising how quickly those few hours go when you hitting the lounge rug with your best mama moves!

    We have dance parties mid morning most days if we are at home. And we have tickle parties in the afternoons a lot too. It’s good to have a bit of your day just dedicated to being a goofball with your kids. X

      Yep totally agree! Moo, tends to stand there looking agog with sheer amazement at what a complete fool I am making of myself most days, but hey, its in the privacy of my own home and it entertains them both for a good hour or so! X

    My girls love to dance and it’s such fun when we all dance together. Friday evening, radio two play the Muppet song so that is our fixed diary date to all stop what we’re doing and have a boogie. So good for the soul! Might need to introduce a 4 o’clock rule now though. Great idea!
