How did ten years go by that fast? 119 months and 364 days had passed and I can’t believe that my son is now a decade old. I feel that it was only yesterday when I was pregnant and now I have a TEN-ager. His age is now double-digit and this is the last year that he can count his age using his fingers.
He is now 10 years old and how I wish that he won’t be in a hurry to grow up because his mom is not ready yet. He may not be a baby anymore but he's not too old for our hugs and kisses.
Happy 10th birthday to my favorite son. Always dream big, believe in yourself and make it happen. We love you so much.
A few weeks before my son’s birthday, I asked my son what he wanted for his birthday.
Ethan: Ayaw ko party, sa bahay lang.
Me: How about staycation?
Ethan: Expensive yan.
I felt happy because my son knows that staycation is not cheap. I thought makakatipid ako sa birthday niya since ayaw niya magparty and magstaycation. He just wanted to receive gifts so my husband was planning to buy Playstation para daw hindi puro cellphone anak ko pag weekend, at least may bonding sila mag-ama. Pero feeling ko, mas gusto ng ama niya ang Playstation. Hehehe!
A week before his birthday, my son changed his mind.
Ethan: Mommy, for my birthday, I want to go to my favorite hotel.
Me: Hmm, what is your favorite hotel?
Waah! I was shookt! Hindi ko ineexpect na may favorite hotel na pala siya. We just went to Sofitel last February for our wedding anniversary so naging favorite na pala niya. So I immediately inquired to Sofitel and Shangri-la Fort for their room packages. We’ve been to EDSA Shangri-la and Makati Shangri-la and hindi pa namin na try yung Fort branch. They have Adventure Zone kasi so I feel that my son will like it so I inquired. We compared the price and inclusions and we chose the Sofitel package.
Since my son’s birthday fell on a weekday, we celebrated it in advance. Ayaw ko din naman siya mag-absent sa school para lang magcelebrate. I will share our Birthday Staycation at Sofitel Club Millesime on a separate post.
On the day of his birthday, we bought small gifts, mini cake and I printed Pokemon Birthday Banner. I planned to have a small Pokemon Party sana for his birthday kaso nagbago isip niya so hindi ko na tinuloy preparation ko. lol
