Why do most parents go for the "big time" when preparing their kids first birthday celebration. Eh hindi naman ma-aappreciate ng kid yun. Siguro later paglaki nya makikita nya sa pictures. Ang asawa ko gusto magpapa-party -- big party inviting almost lahat ng kakilala. Ako, hindi ko feel. Kung budget ang pag-uusapan, merong budget. Of course, proud ako sa baby ko for having reached a major milestone. Hindi ko lang feel, i find it stressful mag-entertain ng people. I also don't want to ride the usual bandwagon na -- just because others are doing it, kami rin. Gusto ko kami kami lang, may family photo shoot at kainan with the immediate family members. I don't need to please other people and meet their expectations. May katulad ba sa akin na ganito dito sa PMT or am I such a party pooper? How did you guys celebrate your kids' birthdays? thanks for sharing.

I once had this view also. Then my mother told me that usually we (or mothers) celebrate the 1st birthday of a baby because age 0, 1month old, 2months old, etc.. to 1 is the hardest / crucial stage for a new born baby. So we celebrate it as a thanks giving for reaching the 1 year old mark.

A simple celebration will do or none at all, each to his own and its your money. Just don't let the norm dictate what you/your family should be comfortable with.

thanks for the reply wiggy. Yes, indeed different strokes for different folks. I just don't feel entertaining. And yes, there are different ways of celebrating. :)

@ggurl

Oops sorry I thought this post was from a guy. Anyway here's a guys take on your problem.

Yup I had to agree with you. I got to liking kids parties by inviting my friends also. So happy lahat, my wife, family, kids and me. There was one time though that part of my kids birthday was a party organizer who dressed up like pocahontas and danced livin da vida loca . . . man that was a site to behold. When I went in the house to get a drink all of the able males were behind the screen window oggling at pocahontas so as not to be seen by their better halves ahahahaha! From that time on I make sure the the party organizer was always top notch . . . if you know what I mean hehehe!
