This has been the longest I have had a break from a post since the starting of my blog.

Just had a relaxed weekend after a long time. Daughter had no parties or social obligation. Hubby was off on his ship for a short stint. Father –in-law was out. I had just finished giving the final exam of a course I was taking. So I was “without a goal”.

I was almost feeling like a college gal. Slept through the morning with my daughter. Watched some movies with her. Since I wanted to really take the relaxation to the hilt, I had lifted the TV ban so that my DD was occupied most of the time to allow me to lift my legs up and enjoy a cup of cappuccino.

However, all this allowed me lot of time to just observe. It was like everything around me was zipping past me at its usual manic pace while I was in a slow motion bubble. Just sipping on my coffee and observing.

Observing my baby use her iPad with unimaginable dexterity, watching the pigeons eat on the grains left on the ledge by her, seeing her blow bubbles in her bath, watch her watch my bollywood movies in awe….everything was registering in my mind in a new light. A soft gentle calm light.

Since movies made up a chunk of my weekend, my thought process was bound to be influenced by it. “Life is a stage and we are just part of this grand show.”

We get so lost in everyday existence that we forget to enjoy the show.

That’s equally true for parenting. As important it is to bring up our babies well, equally important is to just enjoy them!

One of my favourite songs (from which I have picked up the title of this post too) sums up even my parenting philosophy equally well. Actually it is true for any relation.

So I will keep the post short and let the song say for itself…and Lenka, welcome for the free advertising I am giving you here!

I strongly recommend watching the video. However in case, the video dint work for you here are the lyrics. Will apply to all moms reading this post. So absorb them well….and sing them once in a while!

‘m just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze, and love is a riddle
I don’t know where to go
Can’t do it alone
I’ve tried, and I don’t know why

Slow it down, make it stop
Or else my heart is going to pop
Cause its to much, yeah its a lot
To be something I’m not

I’m a fool, out of love
‘Cause I just can’t get enough

[Chorus]

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out
It’s bringing me down
I know, I’ve got to let it go

And just enjoy the show

The sun is hot in the sky
Just like a giant spot light
The people follow the signs
And synchronize in time

It’s a joke, no body knows
They’ve got a ticket to that show
Yeah

[Chorus]

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out
It’s bringing me down
I know, I’ve got to let it go

And just enjoy the show

Just enjoy the show

[Chorus]

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out
It’s bringing me down
I know, I’ve got to let it go

And just enjoy the show

Just enjoy the show
Just enjoy the show

I want my money back
I want my money back
I want my money back

Just enjoy the show

I want my money back
I want my money back
I want my money back

Just enjoy the show
