A Simple 5th Birthday

May 7, 2009

We had a very simple birthday celebration for Ishi yesterday. We rushed home from work at 6:30pm and by 7:00 pm, I was busy cooking spaghetti for dinner. We also pre-ordered her cake, and we also brought home a gallon of ice cream. We sang her Happy Birthday and then she told us we can all eat the spaghetti. Then when she was done eating her pasta (she had two servings!) she said we can now eat the cake. And when she is done with the cake, we can now have the ice cream. The little girl had fun telling us to wait for her Kuya Danniel who take too long eating his rice (he doesn't eat spaghetti!). It was a very simple birthday, but you can see from her pictures that she really had fun. She felt really special that day because her brothers gave in to her requests, like what TV shows to watch and who take first turn on the Game boy. etc because it was her birthday.

Of course, we still owe her a swimming party before the start of school, but I like it that she can appreciate a simple celebration. Since we need to enroll all three of them this school year, our budget is a little strained than usual. But I am really happy that my kids are growing simple and easy to please.

Thank you for small blessings!
