I'm the reason people don't want gays to have kids...

Oh no! I think I have too many bad sterotypes going at once!

I know we always laugh and shake our heads when people say that the GLTB community shouldn't have kids becuase they will raise gay children. This is a silly notion, however, I think if anyone had a video camera in my house right now they would assume I am actively trying to recruit my son to "our team".

Right now, after a long and boring week, we are having The First Annual Family Dance Party! Well, not exactly, Papa is cooking and singing along, but Daddy and Mark are getting down with their bad selves. He might not be able to talk in full sentances, he might not be able to go to the bathroom by himself, he might not even be able to always walks without falling, however, my son DOES KNOW HOW TO DANCE!



Mark will not be the kid in the class that stands in the corner when all the girls are in the middle of the dance floor. He will know how to get his groove on from the very start. The jury may be out if I am trying to raise him gay or to be quite the lady's man, however this boy is going to bring it.

I also think I might have to join the "Bad Parenting" thread. I got a CD of kid friendly music. After sitting through two songs the dance party threw out the CD, and is now playing Kelly Clarkson, Basement Jaxx, old boy bands, and songs from Star Academie, (the French Canadian version of American Idol.) I never noticed how many of my songs are not kid appropriate until you start to pay attention. My "Mark friendly" playlist needs a lot more songs. Oh well...

That's my weekend so far, I hope you are having a great one too!

You may want to look for "Mouse House" Disney's Dance Mix CD.......

Some great dance versions of Diseny music.

My mother tells me I could cut the rug to the Beatles back in the old Ed Sullivan days!

I think I can help here.

There are a couple of artists left over from my stint as a 'psuedo' new waver in the 80s, that are now making Kid Friendly music.

They Might Be Giants
Dan Zanes (who was in DelFuegos).

Both of these are definitely kid friendly, but the actual music is good enough that you won't want to pull your hair out by the roots!!!

I think it's great that you're teaching your little guy a skill that he can carry with him for the rest of his life. Trust me, he'll soon be the envy of his peers because he knows how to dance. And just because I love this smilie, I have to put his picture in . Too bad they don't have a toddler version of that smilie.

And as Mark gets a little older, these are the kind of silly fun family times he will remember!!! I'm 33 and I still remember doing silly things like that with my parents!

Have fun!!

I think you are great. Some of the funniest videos of the kids, in their opinion, are of them dancing around the living room with us when they were little. Enjoy the time he is young because they grow up way too fast.

haha! Thanks guys! You all rock! Sadly there are no photos, but I have a feeling that we will be doing this sometime again soon!

Mike, I might have to check out that CD. To be honest, I need to catch up ona a bit of my Disney knowledge before our trip. And Tony, don't worry, there was definetly some Madonna! Ever try to teach a toddler the moves to "Hung Up"? What is worse; the fact this is what I teach my son, or the fact that I knew all the moves to begin with?

Um - I don't see a problem here at all! Although now instead of pictures - maybe we should require some video of this!
