Footloose, kind of

Alicia got a dance mat for Christmas as her primary gift and constantly has it out. Well, Alex was watching and wanted to have a go. Being the helpful older sister, Alicia got him all started on the easiest setting, and I've been sitting here watching him try to do it. He's got little legs, and isn't as double-jointed as Alicia is, and ended up falling into the splits when he hopped sideways.

But then he couldn't get up. And didn't understand why Alicia and I are giggling hysterically.

At least he's still young enough not to feel like he's hurt himself. Or to be so self-conscious to try it in the first place. :)
