You would probably never guess this about us, but Bubblehead and I hit the club scene nearly every night of the week. It's easy to do because we take our kids along with us. The place we like to go is VERY exclusive, and it's never crowed, which we're okay with, because we aren't there to meet people. We go for the music, and the fun!
Right after our family is finished with dinner each night we go put our party clothes on and head to the club. The music gets turned up, (and did I mention they play ALL our requests?) and the lights are dimmed. Little Man and Ella are the first ones out on the dance floor, and all eyes are on them and they turn circles and bounce to the beat of the music. (Little Man has a dance named after him, where he bounces around in a circle with his hands firmly on his knees – it's a crowd-pleaser for sure!)
Bubblehead and I like to hang back and watch for a bit before joining in with the kids, usually at their request. As soon as I pick Ella up she wraps her legs around my waist and her arms around my neck as we spin around.
Of course there are plenty of drinks to go around, too. Bubblehead enjoys a margarita or a rum and coke, while I usually stick with a Dr. Pepper or an occasional glass of wine. The kids suck down their juice like it's going out of style. (It's a good thing I'm the designated driver!)
The party goes on well past 7:30, and then for last call there is one or two final requests for favorite songs, and some graham crackers to help sober us up. Oh yes, do we know how to party!!
And then the lights come up, and it's time to leave the kitchen to go brush teeth. The kids never want to leave, and to be honest neither do we - until we're reminded of that heavenly event that follows clubbing: bedtime!
