First Birthday!

My little girl just turned one yesterday! Her McDo party is tomorrow, but we celebrated with a simple dinner, misua and a birthday cake.

My mom was telling me that first birthdays should be celebrated on the day itself and may be anticipated, or celebrated in advance. But for subsequent birthdays, celebrations may be done later. My mother-in-law, however, does not like advance celebrations for birthdays, even first birthdays, since Pinoys frown on this and would rather celebrate later. Cultural clash here! We solved this by having a small, family-only celebration on the birthday itself and the kiddie party afterwards.

When the kids are older, maybe we can think of some other activity like an out-of-town trip. Disney vacations would be nice too, especially since there's one in Hong Kong already, so we could probably have a short weekend getaway now and then. Not this year, though. It's pretty difficult to handle both kids without help at this point. And we'd like them to be able to remember those trips.
