Happy Birthday!

February 21, 2012

Oh well, we all get old, a year at a time. For one who feels less accomplished, it becomes less of a celebration. Still it needs to be celebrated, after all a year added to life is already a blessing to thank for.
The Big Boy and his Dad's cake
It’s Husband’s birthday today, but none of a  tear-jerking surprise from me. He had his ‘gift’ early this month that he’s quite happy of. So for today, the most I can do is to be nice to him :-)  :

1.     I volunteered that we hit bed early at 10pm last night rather than at 1am (he struggles to put me to sleep early)
2.     No massage for preggy me last night
3.     I managed the kitchen chores last night (this is his task) while he taught the Big Boy Maths (substraction). He peeped later to say he felt a sense of fulfillment that the Big Boy finally can subtract multi-digits by himself (we’re still complaining his Math learnings are mostly done at home, and hoping his teacher was much better in explaining the lessons).
4.     I woke up five minutes ahead than him this morning (this is his task - again) to prepare breakfast for the three of us, plus I lit his birthday cake (from JW Marriot – bought at 50% off. Yeah, we also make the most of discounts on occasions. Vienna Café sells their cakes at half the price between 5pm to 9pm daily).
5.     I’ll abstain from making fun of him today. I have this habit of teasing him as ‘physically-not-so-hunky’.
6.     Probably no massage for preggy-me tonight
7.     Thank you Entertainer voucher – this task is made easier – I booked a dinner at Farriers Restaurant at Meydan Hotel.

Both busy. The celebrant tinkering with his white-colored 'gift'.
The Husband’s blessings are all a family affair. As we look forward to another blessed year, we’re greatly grateful for the past year highlighted by our Little Precious One. On travels, while a planned Sri Lanka trip was stalled by my getting preggy, we visited Turkey last year.  On career, which we believe was the reason behind Little Precious One’s coming into picture, Husband relocated for work in Muscat last August , which he eventually has to leave five months later due to my pregnancy. But graces still, he continues to work for the company now remotely. There’s really so much to thank for than be smirking at getting old :-)

And my prayer said through my pastries :-)
