Rick and I recently joined some friends on a Sunday afternoon for Baby Loves Disco here in New York City. Have you every been to one of these? Basically you get to drink beer, dance to old Bee Gees and Michael Jackson tunes and watch your kids be happy. Seriously happy. See….
Well, Rick at least looks seriously happy.
Listen, no one invites us to weddings anymore, so we crave us some afternoon drinking and dance floor action.
Basically, Baby Loves Disco transforms night clubs across the country into child-proof discos for weekend dance parties. I’ve thought the idea was brilliant for a long time and often curse myself for not coming up with this genius idea. Or at least figuring out a way to secretly steal it.
Summer and I quickly found our groove.
They also had lots of snacks and drinks for the kiddos. I had never heard of these low sugar, juice drinks from Honest Kids. I’m thinking they should hire Summer as their juice model.
By the way, do you think Summer looks like the young Olsen twins from “Full House?” Because I hear this frequently. In case, you forgot what the great, sassy Michelle Tanner looked like…
Hmmm… maybe I’ll try to turn Summer into a cash producing, media empire like the Olsens. No, that sounds ridiculously exhausting. A juice model sounds like a better goal for a lazy stage mom.
Anyway, back at the disco…
Dylan, who does not like big parties of any kind, was not exactly feeling the dance fever. Where’s Ren McCormack when you need him? C’mon, you don’t have to click. You remember Ren, right?
So Dylan simply refused to take off her jacket and hat for the first TWO hours.
That girl really knows how to commit herself to something.
But eventually, with the help of a bubble machine, even she got into the disco groove…
And so did contributing mama Jordana Bales and her two girls…
On a separate note, if you have been racked with wonder about my weekly trip to Whole Foods…
Yes, we went this week.
Yes, Dylan declared her urgent need to poop.
Yes, she mentioned this in front of the hot prepared foods section.
In a time of economic uncertainty, job instability and an erratic stock market, isn’t it nice that there are some things you can count on? I think so too.
mama bird notes:
In my latest “drooling over this,” you’ll find some sweet, groovy dolls.
And Contributing mama Daphne Biener has a habit of keeping some pretty interesting things in her basement. Is she just sentimental or has this mama gone a bit too far? Click on contributing mamas and weigh in.
