My baby is turning 1 year in about 2 months time. and being a person who loves to attend makan2 events i think i would love to throw my baby her very FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY! InsyaAllah. if everything goes well, we might have her birthday celebration not on November but December la instead. because i would be glued to exam papers doing my usual routine, marking, keying in marks, and all the headaches with my students's affair la. Zaman la ni i think budak2 exam, pensyarah yang big headaches! hui.. and because of that i don't think i could focus doing the planning or arranging things related to party.. i think December is good time to have a party and ada school holidays some more, so boleh la sepupu2 and kawan2 seangkatan Maryam datang her birthday party sebab mak2 cuti kan. ;)
Back to the story. i am now almost confirmed with the birthday theme and i think i could slowly plan the party kot. remember it took us (the ex-brides) years to plan our wedding kan?? now i am planning for my baby's party pulak...the feeling is...overwhelming kot? hahhaha... biasa lah...bab2 anak ni memang mak2 yang selalu over the top kan...
And for the record NO... i am not throwing a big party. i actually planned to have a very small celebration. just the three of us. Maryam + Mommy + Daddy. i thought of going somewhere for a short trip this end of year but thinking back, i think it would be nice to share our happiness by having at least a small gathering of children and mothers, eat, chat, camwhore, eat lagi and stuff like that... it doesn't have to be a big party. Cos i really don't have any intention to spend like mad over Maryam's birthday celebration.
Anyways, i have a few themes in mind to begin with. at first i couldn't really decide. i wish i could just ask Maryam what she would like for her birthday celebration. hahaha...
We had ( i mean i had 4 favorite theme of my own that i always saved in my memory.) ok fine, these are basically what i wished for if i were a kid! LOL.
* Strawberry short cake theme
* Mickey mouse or Baby Minnie theme
* Snow white and the 7 dwarfs theme
* Rainbow theme
i wish i had the creativity and the budget to realize everything that i wish to have for my girl la..seriously.. i have all the creative imaginations but i am just not as creative to do it all on my own. silap2 jadi benda lain lak..but when i think carefully again, i want to take the effort to do the planning and see how it turns like. and i hope when Maryam grows up she would look at the pictures of her first birthday and happy la... that's the most important thing for me. and i just want everybody to enjoy together with us. pheww....to plan for something enjoying is a challenge nih!
i just hope that i won't get carried away as if i am planning for my own birthday pulak. yang tu haru tu..hahahha...kids should be allowed to be kids. and YES i would let Maryam eat her birthday cake by ignoring the sugar content and such... well, once in a while, no harm kan~ let the kid enjoy.
Anyway, i am just wondering could somebody custom made this flags for me in Penang? i mean i 'd like to have flags with HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARYAM wordings. but i just don't have the idea where can i get it. NO i am not DIYing ok. cos, i'm just horrible at it. hahaha... where hah???
okay what is the theme??? well, should i say here? i still have 2 months and maybe i might change...who knows... ;p
