Birthday Weekend....



Ah time...it flies so fast. Our little boy is now a man...a fully grown 43-year old man....hahaha. OLD is right...tee hee....

It's the birthday of the man of the house this past weekend. As usual, no big party whatsoever. He's been working like a horse...well, not quite...he's been working harder than a horse. As expected, he was working on his birthday...on a weekend. But since it's his birthday, he decided to take off work earlier than normal. We were able to eat out followed by a trip to the mall then to the Philippine Store nearby. Yeah! It felt like it was MY birthday...toink!

Just like any other occasion, it seemed like it was the little one's birthday since she was the one who was very excited about it. She's been trying to hide from Dad that it's HIS birthday. H-U-H???

And because she couldn't keep a secret, I didn't tell her about the gift I got for Dad. I didn't plan in telling her either. My plan was just ask her to put her 'personal' touch on the box [read: draw whatever you want since Dad likes her doodles] and not show her the content. I left the box on the computer table before I got the chance to seal it and what do you know...she opened it and found out what's inside. Sigh...

I asked her not to say anything to Daddy about the content of the box and she said okay. Do you think she was able to bite her tongue??? Not quite. When Dad was about to open the box she just blurted out...."here Dad. We got you a G..."...and since the gift is only a 3 letter acronym, Dad guessed it right away. And yes, it's a GPS. Ugh!

PS: The pink bow on the box is a hair bow that came with a dress she had when she was about 2. She uses it as a gift bow every chance she gets. Sometimes it's gift bow, other times it's a bow tie and sometimes it's a head band. Resourceful, eh? LOL...
