The Month of the Heart of Winter

the new leaf of January is my Month!

paolo’s 7th


Our P maybe naughty-looking & rowdy but within him is a sweet little boy who loves McQueen, BumbleBee, and Iron Man, his latest favorite hence the theme of his 7th birthday. 🙂


On the second Sunday of March this year we marked P’s 7th, and like us (Che & SAM) who welcomed this culturally significant milestone with a simple yet meaningful party, the little boy had his courtesy of the grandparents. Days before his birthday I was talking to his mom about the requested invite, I was a bit complaining that maybe we could just change the theme to Cars or anything that is easy to find online but the little boy was expecting none other than this fictional superhero –Tony Stark.


I had to redo the invite and came out with something as plain as this. Hay!



The cake, of course should go with the theme, I remember that third party baker who made DJ’s cake during his first birthday. Unfortunately my sister wasn’t able to book it for reasons I can’t recall now. I suggested that she get a mini-Iron Man themed cake for candle blowing and order another big greetings cake from Goldilocks so guests can enjoy it. Except for the pink-shade (and “H” on my B’s name) of the bigger cake everything came in order.



If I have a gazillion, ok millions will do that time, I would have booked a friend who really does well in children parties these days. From our lousy telecom job he becomes the yoyo master, Google him! But the party clowns didn’t disappoint the kids, tho I found their line up a little lengthy especially the bring-me game. Some kids left even before the main event –the magic tricks & balloon twisting but nonetheless the birthday boy had a great, great time. 😛



And the maternals had an equally wonderful time, a thousand and more photo ops again, and a summer get away was sealed right there and then.


To our little big boy who loves nothing but hot coffee in Starbucks (if you have additional budget for ensaymada it will complete his happiness and all), may you let go of your mischievous ways, remember you are now Kuya to baby Ysa. Be a good student in school like Ate SAM tho we don’t ask you to be the perfect student, no pressures on that. Be that responsible and confident young man, God-fearing and loving to your parents, to Lolo & Lola, to Ninong & Ninang, to Bei & Boi including to your very own Tonyo. I can’t wait to see your grow and be a noble fireman of your time. 😀 And may you remember this 7th birthday as whimsical and wondrous as the past birthdays and may this mark the arrival of unlimited special days in your life.


Ninang loves you to bits, stay cool baby boy! ♥


And thank you to everyone who made our little boy’s Iron Man party a significant one! 🙂
