This Grandpa Does Daily Social-Distancing Dance-Offs With His Granddaughter, and We're Swooning
One of the hardest aspects of social distancing for Sherrie Neely is having to tell her daughter, 6-year-old Kira, that she can't walk the dozen yards to visit her grandparents, who moved into a neighboring house when Kira was just a baby.
"This is the street that separates my house from my parent's house, and is typically crossed multiple times throughout the day," Sherrie wrote in a Facebook post.
Instead of crossing the street to see each other, they've been doing the next-best thing.
"Kira loves her 'Papa' so much and they've now started daily 'dance offs' since the virus is keeping them separated," Sherrie wrote. "My Dad is turning 81 years old next month and I've never seen him dance, but he's really putting forth great effort and has some special moves!!!!"
As evidenced by the sweet video she shared, Sherrie isn't exaggerating. Her dad holds his own in the adorable competition, even when others pass by. "I'm sure the workers think we're crazy!!!" Sherrie added.
As hard as it's been, Sherrie said the fact they can still get outside and "have fun from a distance means everything" to the family.
The 30-second video has been viewed nearly 330,000 times, and it's making us all wonder: can they set up a live feed?
