My baby is no longer a baby

Time really flies so fast... Patrick turns 9 today!

To our dearest panga-panga,

You're a very sweet and smart boy... and you are very protective of your baby sister.

You have a lot of questions... a lot of dreams... a lot of ambitions... most of all, at this age, you are having an obsession with having "lots of money."

Continue on dreaming and aiming high, it will open lots of doors for you (in due time). Remember that you promise to buy mommy a car* when you have your own money.

For now, enjoy your childhood and study hard!

Happy birthday Patrick!

Mommy, Daddy and Patricia loves you very very much! Mwaaaah!

* During one of our conversation, I told Patrick that he had to study hard to get into a good university and get a good job... and maybe someday, he would be able to buy me a house. He said: "mommy, I'll buy you a car instead, cause a house is way toooo expensive."

Last Sunday was Patrick's advance birthday party. We only invited 2 families (I can only fit 2 families in our small apartment).

He was feeling sick that morning, stomach ache and vomitting but no fever. I had to take him to the doctor to make sure I can have other kids around him. The doctor said it was just a stomach flu. I wanted to cancel the party but he said "No, don't cancel the party, please. My cake will go to waste."

Hi Evi, thanks! he is a little better, but he still dont have his appetite back.

Hi Joy, happy 3rd birthday to your Melvyn too!

Thanks Ethel!

Hi Junnie, thanks for your idea, I think I will just do that... he is really excited about opening his own back account.

Hi Jo, if it did happen, I'll make sure he doesn't forget all the people who helped him in any way.

Thanks Linnor! No more new toys for his birthday... he already had a lot from christmas. This birthday, we decided to give him money so he can open his own bank account.
