I was shocked when I saw the calendar this morning. I didn’t realize that there’s just four days to go till my daughter’s birthday. She’ll be turning 3 on the 11th and I still haven’t prepared for anything. Frankly speaking, Im quite undecided on holding a party or celebrating simply (just family, with me cooking). Well, actually, I thought of having a joint celebration for the both of us. But Julia, has her mind set on staging her own birthday. I remember a couple of weeks ago, she’d call on other kids in the nieghborhood and tell them about her “birthday party”.
Now, with just a few days to go, I have to decide on what to do. Let’s see, her birthday falls on a weekday. Friday to be exact. Come to think of it I could grant her “wish” by having her playmates come by the house while I cook up a kiddie feast. Yes, that’s what Im going to do.
Sorry, folks, Im not really a master of planning ahead. I work best when I cram. My game plan is to organize a playhouse birthday party for Julia and her friends (5 kids, I think). Meantime, here’s what’s on my checklist:
- party favors
Wish me luck, guys…
