On the morning of EJ's 9th birthday, he woke up and looked around and was bummed out that he did not see any gifts. I did not want him to see what he got until he comes home from school so I did not wrap them yet. When they left to school, that's when I wrapped all of them up.
He was pretty pleased when he arrived from school and saw the stack of gifts waiting for him in the living room.
I made him an organizer for his hot wheels car from upcycled empty boxes. I am glad he liked it.
His sister, Ate Rylie got him a nautica shirt and a star war shirt which he liked.
I stopped having birthday parties for my kids when they started going to school. It's just something that hubby and I agreed upon, to just take them somewhere for their birthday every year. We went to Kalahari for his 9th birthday.
We also got him this Avengers pillow which he love.
And the bean bag that he wanted.
I mistakenly ordered the small bean bag online so his is not as big as his sister's but he was okay with it.
A big thank you to the Dias family for always remembering our special occasion. They never failed to send us presents no matter what occasion it is. Thank you!
Thanks also to Tita Chris and Tita Gail for the cash gift which he put in his savings. He has been saving all his money to buy his first car lol. I love that he is starting to have a vision about saving and not spending his money for things that doesn't really matter. For the best part, I also got him a personalized book from iSeeMe.
I gave this to him a little late but it was a perfect timing when it arrived. He was upset when he came home from school because he thought he messed up the test that he took that day. He wasn't able to bring his notes before the snow day so we didn't get to study for his test. This book made him feel better after I calmed him down and told him that he can still make it up to his grade by getting a high score next time.
If you are looking for something special to give to your child this Valentine's day or for any special occasion, iSeeMe has a lot of selection of personalized books. Who Loves Me?

I can't believe that my little man is getting bigger and older, where did the time go? It's funny that he said he feels like he is sixteen when he turned nine years old lol.

Aww EJ is so cute! Those gifts look pretty awesome. I like that you're encouraging your child and not make a big deal when he feels like he didn't do well in the exam. Giving reassurance and comfort shows a lot of care and support.ReplyDelete
Thats a wonderful idea of not having birthday parties once they reach a certain age. I think we may implement that in our home! Thank you for sharing EJ's special day with us!ReplyDelete
What a great birthday!! I'm totally done for no birthday parties and just more experiences!ReplyDelete
Ha! My daughters would have committed mutiny if we stopped giving them birthday parties when they started school. But then, most of their parties were just as much fun for us as they were for the kids!! It looks like EJ had a wonderful birthday!ReplyDelete
