My lack of dance finesse has been noted multiple times over the years (mostly by myself, although I’m sure innocent bystanders have noticed too), so it’s not like when I became a mom I suddenly lost my dancing mojo. But as a mom, I know I am infinitely dorkier than I once was. Mostly it’s because I have no shame in what I do to get my kids and their friends to laugh. Some of it is simply that my daughter already thinks I’m a dork. It’s like a self-fulfilling prophecy. She’s two-and-a-half and already is like, “Mommy, NO DANCING.”
However, not every mom is a dancing dork. In doing all of the stereotypical mom moves with Jimmy Fallon, Michelle Obama proves that some moms can groove. I’ll never be one of them; I’ll always be more like Jimmy, I’m afraid.

Do your mom moves and grooves embarrass your kids? —Erin
