Hello my dears! This is such a long overdue blog post from me. September went by so quickly! Why? It's a month filled with happiness and celebrations in the family. September is the birthday month of my two sons, Dandre, who just turned ten, and my toddler Wes, now three years old.
Dandre Turns 10
Let me tell you a funny story about my 10-year old son. He shocked me a little when the night before his birthday, he told me that he announced in his class that he will be treating them for lunch for his birthday.
Me: What? Baket mo sinabi yun anak? Diba, we're going to Boracay na nga to celebrate it and we're just going to have dinner at home?
D: Oh! I thought po kasi, that's the reason why you filed for leave on my birthday. I thought you will all go to my school and celebrate it with my classmates
Me: Moment of silence. Moment of Budget 101. Moment of nga-nga. Moment of pagkahabag. Zzzzz...
Of course ayoko naman siyang mapahiya sa classmates niya. Good thing, I saved some extra, but just enough to feed around 30 persons (including his teachers na yan!) Whew! So the following day, ayun, aligaga to go to his school early to get a permit slip to deliver Jollibee meals in his class.
Wes Turns Three
I just noticed, that I wasn't as emotional with Wes turning three, as I was when my Dandre turned three seven years ago. I think it's because I know better with my second child that no matter how I wish they won't grow up that fast, we cannot stop it eh!
Wes turned three last September 18 while we were at Boracay. It was a fun-filled day for us. That was the day I scheduled our island hopping activity.
I bought a cake at our hotel's bakeshop and brought it with us during the boat ride to the first island we went to, Ilig-Iligan Island. The candles were bought at Puregold in Manila for less than P30.00! We had dinner that day at D' Talipapa for delicious fresh seafood! It was a great day indeed!
When you think of birthday parties, other than cake, you think of Ice Cream to right? I am blessed to receive an Ice Cream Party Package from Nestle Ice Cream It's got our favorites, Kimy, ice cream cups in Mango, Chocolate and Ube, and Twin Pops! It was a blockbuster during the party for kids and kids-at-heart
