In December of 2015, my hubby and I along with our daughter went to attend my school friend’s wedding. I was excited and happy. As soon as we reached the venue, I met one of my classmates. Although we both were not friends but our meeting brought back all the school memories and I felt nostalgic. I introduced him to my husband and talked for a few minutes, then, we proceeded to have some snacks. Whatever we ate, my one-year-old daughter made sure that she tasted it. We were surprised seeing her relishing the spicy chaats and other delectable food items. But it wasn’t the only surprise of that night, there was more to come. The bride and the groom had exchanged the “varmalas” and the photo-session had already started, so we also thought of going on the stage to wish them good luck for their married life but the newlyweds were already surrounded by the other friends and relatives. Then, we decided to wait for some time and took our daughter to the dance floor where other children were dancing and shaking their bodies with their newly discovered dance steps. To our surprise, our daughter (the youngest baby on the floor) didn’t take much time to adjust there and started tip-tapping her shoes. For both of us, it was a moment of sheer bliss and pure joy. The best part was that she was trying to perform the dance moves according to the music, she didn’t stick to one step and try shaking each part of her body. Slowly and steadily she grabbed everybody’s attention and became the center of attraction. Just before a month, she started taking baby steps on her birthday in November; me and my husband were all smiles looking at her and thought how lucky and blessed we are to have her in our life. Then my husband (with all emotions) said – “Neha, she is the charm of life”. Then I looked at him with watery eyes and said – “She is our life”. He then smiled and put her hand around me and we both continued savoring the moment. Indeed, it was a night to remember!
