What They Want On Their Birthdays

Nevertheless, we did not have a grand birthday celebration. The kids just wanted to have the simple one. My eldest daughter said that she doesn’t need to have an extravagant one but she just want to treat her friends. It was actually a relief for me though because that means I don’t have to spend much. So I just gave Mj P3, 000. 00, the other half was spent for Faith checkup. Then a week after, it was Faith’s birthday, Faith said she just want to go to a nature park and books. I bought her books on the day of her birthday, just before I sent the foods for lunch; yes we just provided free lunch for her classmates and 2 huge pizzas for her teachers.

Faith was so excited of the book, the big one is all about Science and the other one is the book 4 that she wasn’t able to read yet in Land of Stories. On my day off I tagged her along to Eden Nature Park; I also invited my two sisters and my niece. We had so much fun especially Faith, she wanted the rides but we were out of schedule already.

I Am Confused

My cousin just messaged me this morning that they are hiring this time in the account that I had been wanting to join for a year now. I really wanted to go to submit my requirements but this week is just so hectic. Tomorrow is my youngest daughter’s birthday; I will be the one to deliver the lunch for the whole class and 2 boxes of pizza. If I will go at their office at 8 in the morning I may not be able to make it to do all things for Faith’s birthday because after I will deliver their lunch I have to grocery shop for our dinner at home then I have to go back in SM to buy the gift she wanted, not to mention I still have work later at night. Too busy that sometimes I can’t handle anymore.

On Friday, my sister already booked our Eden outing, an extension for her birthday celebration. Faith loves nature and animals and since we haven’t been there yet, I’d like to treat her, supposedly it was only her and I but my nieces, Mj and sisters would like to join, so I will be treating the whole family. I am hoping my money can make it. So moving forward I still can’t make it to their office. I know that opportunity knocks only once but how can I grab it, while I need to be a mother first for my kids. Oh God please guide my decisions.

Birthday Greetings For Our Dear Friend

I guess I already mentioned it here that we attended a birthday party last Saturday. My friend who happens to be the mother of the celebrant is my friend when Mj was still in a swim team. I didn’t expect though that they would still invite us and to be part of this memorable celebration of her daughter who celebrated her 16th birthday party last Saturday.

The theme was Coachella and I didn’t know a thing about the theme. So I just let Mj decides what to wear on that day besides she was the only one who have a participation in the party. Yes she was one of the treasures.

We decided to buy the celebrant a bag; it was a denim bag actually. Mj need to speech but she just said “I hope you would remember with this bag”. I tried to help her with her speech but she said she can do it. Good job Mj!

On the other hand, Aleks happy 16th birthday. I know you’re  a good daughter to your parents just continue being one. Enjoy being young, which means to say study first, reach goal and everything will follow.

Postponed Birthday Celebration

It was my eldest birthday last January 27 but since my payroll is on Friday. I have postponed the celebration yesterday. Mj is a very understanding kid, when I said that I have to postpone the celebration, she told me right away that she will just inform her classmates that the simple party will be move on Friday.

But during her birthday last Wednesday since I still have little extra I was able to buy a half loaf style of Cake in the bakery nearby. When I arrived home, my sister then told me that she will buy burgers and sundae float in Jollibee just for Mj to feel that it is indeed her birthday that day. My sister also bought 1 whole garlic chicken in a carinderia nearby. When the delivery from Jollibee arrived, I finished my share right away so I can get enough sleep for work. Mj was just simply enjoying her share of burger that we forgot the garlic chicken. When I woke up at 12 midnight to get ready for work, the whole garlic chicken is still there waiting for someone who gets interested of picking them up. But no one did until the next day.

I was not able to bond my kid on her special day, but I made sure that we will get enough on Friday.
