My son will be turning five soon. He is my one and only son so he tends to have a lot of goodies every time. He doesn’t need a birthday to realize how he is celebrated. But then again, that’s where the problem starts; we don’t know how to make the day extra special.
We have an occasion that unfortunately fell on my son’s birthday. So we are celebrating his occasion a day early. It bugs my husband so much but for me, I have long compromised my own welfare for the greater good… so for me, that’s okay.
My motto remains, “DO NOT SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF.”
We won’t be able to go back home this Christmas so we would be missing a very important family occasion which is my sister’s wedding. It totally bums me that I won’t be there. I was supposed to be her Matron of Honor but since I have just started with this new job, I don’t have the nerve to ask for vacation. I am so totally not your regular 8-5 employee. I have accountability in my blood. My family understands.
So we are here even during Christmas time.
My son’s school will be hosting a Winter Party to start the Winter Break of the school. He will be celebrating his school birthday party there. Thank God because his teacher helped me with the cake and the clown. All I have to do is supply the Kiddie Meals and the prizes for the games and voila, I have less to think about.
All I need to prepare now is my son’s Day Before His Birthday Party. I have to coordinate with the caterers since I decided to get from different suppliers and we still need a cake to order and pick up.
If I were in my old workplace, preparation would be a little easier because of the flexibility but now, it will take gazillion years for me to establish that comfort being new and all. I hope things will eventually fall into their place.
God bless me!
