Dance songs for parent and child

My FH and I are bringing together a large blended family. We each have 3 children and during the reception we want to have a dance with just us and the children. I can't find the right song for this dance. It has to work but not be too romantic!

    I went to a wedding once where the bride and her daughter danced to "In My Daughter's Eyes" (don't know if you have girls or boys..) but it was incredibly beautiful!

    I'm sure if you're looking for fast or slow, but one suggestion would be "The Greatest Love of All", by Whitney Houston.

    How were you able to include 3 kids? Did they dance in at a time or all together?
