5 Minutes for Mom is hosting another Mother's Day contest and carnival, and the theme is motherhood memories.
Being a mom has given me so many treasured memories. I share this one not because it's the best or my favorite. It's just something that means a lot to me and keeps my daughter and I bonded in a fun way.
I don't know when it started, or even how it did, but for as long as I can remember, Danielle and I have been dancing together. At least that's what we call it. We put our arms around each other and sway back and forth to the music that may or may not exist at the moment.
We only hold this position for a little bit, long enough to get our hugging fix. The fun thing is where we do it. We dance whenever and wherever we feel moved to do so. We've danced in restaurants, in clubs, on the street, in theaters, in the mountains, on the beach, at Disneyland, and in my kitchen. The list could go on and on. There's really no place or time that isn't right for one of our little spins across the imaginary dance floor.
All these special little moments add up to one great motherhood memory. A memory that I will always cherish and that I can bring out whenever I need to feel close to my daughter.
