It's 25 degrees in New York again, on a Monday, which means I've reluctantly climbed back inside the makeshift silk cocoon in my apartment. Luckily, this video of a mom and her daughter dancing to Beyoncé's "7/11" has temporarily warmed my heart.

Of course, it's from an Ellen DeGeneres appearance (on Friday) because Ellen is the official curator of viral-cute moments. Tianne and her 4-year-old daughter Heaven stick choreography to Bey's erratic club record, reminding me that while jamming to "7/11" just yesterday, I neglected to do the Nae Nae. I now deeply regret it. These two nail it so perfectly (around the 1:05 mark) that I'm definitely reintroducing it back into my solo-apartment-dancing routine.
