After a mad rush from my Sydney flight to try to get into a flight to Manila, I started my one week planning for my son’s 6th birthday. This meant the world to me because it was my first time to actually be there during my son’s birthday. Sigh. Just one of those 3rd-world parents dilemma.
I felt like Bridezilla all over again, picking on little things and becoming a monster at the last minutes. Oooops. Sorry. But it was all worth it even with a massive financial hemorrhage in a matter of ten days. Tsktsk. My son loved his party. His little guests had tons of fun. My relatives and friends came over. It was a success. It was more than a success that our Kuya Fin told me “Mommy, I want to have more than one birthday party in a year.” Wow. That’s going to hurt my pockets. Hahah!
As a school tradition, we hosted a “feeding” in his classroom where the birthday celebrator treats his classmates for a delightful snack.
January 11, 2013. A day before his birthday.

Kuya’s bubbly bestfriend, Nico, who actually requested to have his photo taken. I asked Buyog, “Is Nico good in class, baby?” To which he replied, “He is not very good in Math but he is friendly.” Hahah. Kids can be ruthlessly truthful.
