The scene: Pitt Street Mall, Sunday morning, restless shoppers swarm between the buildings, scaffolding looms overhead, a man in a tuxedo plays the electric violin, an ever-increasing crowd hums along as ‘Memories’ (think Barbra Streisand) weaves through the air.
Mr4 takes my hand. He twirls under it, Ginger Rogers style. He turns back to face me, holds out his other hand. I take it. He begins to twirl.
“Dance with me Mummy,” he says.
I laugh. Round and round we go, with a couple of pirouettes and an occasional heel-toe polka thrown in. The crowd makes room for us.
Anonymous was me, forgetting to put my name on!
Wonderful moment, I love it!
That is so sweet. I bet you he’ll be breaking hearts when he’s older x
so cute.. I hope you weren’t the only (adult) dancing at pitt st mall. but it must be fun.. 🙂
How wonderful! I wish there were many others there who wanted to dance too but were too embarrassed to.
O wow! How lovely, a memory to treasure
What a priceless memory for you.
Yes. These are the moments. Beautiful.
Gorgeous! I bet your raised a few smiles from the passersby 🙂
Love it xx
Just gorgeous! I would have danced with him too 🙂
Bless! What a perfect picture you’ve painted of such a poignant moment with Mr.4. Isnt it awesome to have a blog solely to be able to record these special moments, lest they be lost to time?
Those are the moments. Gorgeous.
That’s so lovely! x
What a beautiful sight that must have been, how completely gorgeous!
Pure happiness – what a delightful image you’ve painted.
Very cute 😉
My sons are starting to dance pretty good – but then this morning, I told him to ‘shake yer bum’ and he stood stiff and vibrated his backside. It was priceless.
Little man, bless his little dancin’ shoes.
My heart swells at the thought.
How amazing that such little people can make us happily drop any inhibitions.
These moments, these incredible moments when our children make our heart feel about ten times too big for our bodies.
Dance we me Mommy!
Oh, I haven’t danced with my boys for ages! I just so haven’t been in the mood…
I’m glad you did and wrote about it so beautifully…
That sounds awesome Allison! I love the unbridled enthusiasm of Mr4. I am sure you could have walked away with a hat full of coins after such a performance. Beautiful memories :o)
Love Mr 4’s fearless spontaniety. It reminds me that my Mr 23 used to be a Mr 4 too..and used to dance fearlessly in the aisle at church on a Sunday!
Love those beautiful moments.
Children make the best dancers in public, it is always great to see adults get involved in the fun too.
so cute! wish I’d been there 🙂
