It’s Ruth’s birthday today and I was very busy as she celebrated it partially in school with some of her classmates and in our house with family only. I cooked very early before lunch so I can bring pasta and bread to her classmates before their lunch break. Half of the class is going home at lunchtime so it’s easier to manage her birthday there. I was on time-pressure as I also need to finish some due tasks online but decided to leave some when I get back. Mommies should really be on a fast-move track to do everything in time, wish I hired the magic wand of fairy godmother lol!Anyway I reached the school before 12 noon and made Ruth very happy as seen from the look on her eyes which also took away all the tiredness in my body, seeing my kids happy is all I need to feel contented. I also dropped by bes JennyL to bring her some pasta for snack. I decided not to invite anyone so I just deliver snack to some of my friends and family.
As my girls went home before 6pm we started the blowing of candles and eating after they arrived with just me, Ruth, Josh and my Mom. When hubby arrived we went to a nearby Jollibee and ordered mostly desserts because we’re full from Ruth’s birthday foods back home. It’s nice to dine in fast-food after dinner time as people are fewer and the staff is relaxed. We really had a nice time there because we’re not in a hurry; just want our kids to enjoy the moment. Ruth turns 12 today and it’s her final year of being a girl. Next year she’ll enter secondary school and teenage years but for now I want to enjoy my first baby before she turns into a young lady!
