It’s 4th of July 2009 and it’s Thea’s 4th Birthday. Its been a week that I have been wondering on how to celebrate Thea’s birthday. I really wanted to give her something that she could really appreciate. But as I have said from my previous post... we ‘re currently on financial crisis since the problem with the renovation occurs. My wife originally planned treating them into the mall and buys her favorite toy. Unfortunately, we only come out with a budget of P 600.00, in which I have already used for our allowance, in which I borrowed from Thea’s piggy bank a week ago. “Don’t get angry with me guys! As I have said we’re on crisis sometimes it leave us no choice.” But I did managed to return the amount and I have decided to celebrate her birthday at home.
It’s really hard to budget something, when there is nothing to budget… LOL! But we have did our best to celebrate her birthday at home for only less than P 600.00. I bought this Triple Delight Round Cake from Goldilocks, which only cost me P 295.00 with free personalized caption and free candle. At the same time, I was able to buy her a Kitchen Set Toy as a gift, which only cost me less than P 200.00 and also bought some beverages from the groceries to complete the small party celebration at home.
When Thea saw her cake, she surprisingly said “Wow”. I didn’t expect that she would have the same appreciation when we treat her on her last Kiddie Birthday Party. She said, “Papa, akin ‘to?” (“Dad, Is this mine?”)… And amazingly said again “WOW! Papa” and then gave me hug. My heart almost jump out when Thea’s appreciated her cake and said to me “Samamat Papa!” which I hug her back tightly out of delight. You might be wondering what is “Samamat”? LOL! She means “Salamat or Thank you”... Forgive her... she still having trouble with her pronunciations. But when I heard that word it made feel the coolest Dad on earth! Ha!
You’re the 1, Goldilocks, because even on crisis you’re maasahan. Thank you Goldilocks, “Samamat Goldilocks!” :)
