You know how most 13-year-old kids are mortified by their parents' very existence? Like, don't make eye contact with me in public mortified? You can't be my mom I must have hatched out of an egg mortified?
That's what makes this video of Mike Hanley and his 13-year-old daughter Jessica dancing at her Bat Mitzvah so incredibly cool.
Not only is Jessica allowing her father to do a choreographed dance routine in front of who-knows-how-many family members and friends (and maybe cute boys), she's actually dancing with him. Voluntarily. And she looks happy about it!
Apparently Mike is a stand-up comedian, which must mean that his kids are used to him being kind of fun-loving and goofy and whaddya mean, I look silly? Who cares?
I absolutely love the message this video sends -- be comfortable with yourself and your kid will be comfortable with you (and probably herself, too).
She'll also have the best Bat Mitzvah memories ever.
Would you do a public dance routine like this with your kid?
