How fast they grow!!

Today Little D turns 4!!

Happy Birthday, my precious little one!

How fast she has grown. I still remember when she was first born and the anxiety we went thru'. The struggles that I had with 3 children, and now with Little D turning 4, things are getting pretty much easier for me.

I feel so guilty for not letting her have a birthday party, despite her repeated requests for one. But many of her friends and classmates are away on vacation, and we ourselves just got back from vacation. I know that by giving these excuses I am trying to make myself feel better, and I know I should not be doing it.

We were just going thru our old videos this recently, and all those videos of the parties of my two older children, do make me feel so guilty for not doing it for little D. They had a party every year from age one until age 6, and little D, apart from her 1st birthday party has not had any since, AND she is old enough to understand and appreciate birthday parties. So that makes me feel even worse!

We will still have a birthday cake for her and dinner with the immediate family as part of the celebrations.

So, I promise to give her a GREAT birthday party next year.

Birthday greetings also go out to iml's oldest who shares the same birthday as Little D! May the Good Lord shower both our children with his blessings for good health, success, contentment and happiness today and always!!

Hi iml
I really dont know. Here are some things off the top of my head - a new mobile phone of her choice?? Or a camera, or one of those cool electronic photo frames that can store about 1000 photos? An ipod?

very much depends on your budget too.

She had hinted for a camera. Probably dad will surprise her with one when she comes back. I have in mind a necklace with pendant. So chinese ya.

A very Happy Birthday to darling D! So I remembered right that it was in Dec ;p.

I'm sure you'll come up with something really nice for D next year! But now, SAHM, try not to let that mommy guilt get to you too much... I understand what u mean, as there are lesser of such things we do for Ben than when Jon was little back home. And then for Jon, we didn't get to have any party last year, so this year "owed" him one... good thing we didn't try and do it at home tho', as would have driven me to the nuthouse, haha!

God's richest blessings on D, and no doubt His hand is on her since the beginning! =) I love to see D's sweet smiles every time, and how beautifully she's growing!

Happy birthday also to your friend Iml's eldest!

Thanks everyone for those birthday wishes for Little D.

iml, I dont think you re so chinese, just practical. (coz indians and malays also like to give gold!!)I came up with that list based on my daughter's wants. I also think something of value and can keep is much better. But young people today, feel deprived if they dont have the latest gadget.
