Minion Monday – Dance like no one is watching.
Have you ever had a song that just made you want to dance every time you hear it?
Admit it, we all have one or two that just start you seat dancing in the car.
I do, maybe more than one.. maybe more like 30.
I often listen to music while I am cooking, or cleaning or when I am in the shower.
For as long as I can remember
(so around breakfast last Thursday j.k.)
I have done this.
About 2 years ago, I realized Zach might never do it.
He might never dance to the song on the radio or even pick a song he loves and sing along, even though he has been surrounded by music all his life.
So, in typical Autism Mom form, I made it my goal to find what music he liked.
I set out to find a song, and instead I found out he really did love music, he was just not reacting like I expected.
I realized his favorite artist is Bon Jovi.
I realized he does dance.
He dances with his hands, two little fingers twirling and moving to the music.
I realized he had been dancing like no one was watching.
No one was.
We didn’t know what we were seeing.
What seemed like steming turned out to be his way of dancing.
I learn so much from him. Every single day.
I might be his Mother and Teacher but I learn so much from him.
Dance on Zach! I will turn up Bon Jovi for you and sing and dance along.
Have a great Monday all!
