The only other "special" dance we had in addition to our first dance was the mother/son dance. Since my father was not at the wedding we obviously didn't include the father/daughter dance. I did briefly consider doing a brother/sister dance but decided that both my brother and I would have felt weird doing that, however I didn't want to take away the opportunity for Kristian and his mom to have a special dance together which I knew my mother in law would be looking forward to.
So after we ate, we did the mother/son dance as a way to open up the dance floor for post dinner dancing. I told Kristian he and his mother needed to decide on the song, I had no say in what it was. He chose Rod Stewart's "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You" since his mother is a big Rod Stewart fan.
Both Kristian and his mom felt awkward dancing by themselves on the floor for the entire song so halfway through his father came up to me and suggested we cut in and have a couples dance for the second half of the song. This turned out to be a great idea, it was really nice being on the floor dancing with his parents who have been married for over 40 years and who we really look up to as a couple.
*I think this is such a cute picture of Kristian and his dad high-fiving*
*We always say we are the younger version of his parents, the way we interact as a couple is very similar to them so hopefully this means we're in for over 40 years of marriage ourselves*
*Kristian got his dance moves (and love of dipping) from his dad*
Did/Will you have special dances with your parents? What songs did you dance too?
