Do you remember the last time you had a themed birthday party and you asked for the newest and coolest toys? Honestly, it’s been forever. All I want for my birthday these days is sleep and money. Haha. Anyways, I’ve always loved party planning and birthdays. Now that I have some kiddos of my own, I get to plan parties for them, and that’s very exciting.
My oldest little man just turned two years old and so far, all of his birthdays have been a water theme. His baby shower(s) was whales, his first birthday was Moana, and this year it was good ol’ Baby Shark. Thanks to his Tito Paolo and Tito Spencer, Zeke has been absolutely obsessed with Baby Shark. When he’s upset he wants to watch Baby Shark, when he’s eating when he wants to watch Baby Shark, he always wants to watch Baby Shark. He knows how to sing it, he knows how to do the hand motions. So, naturally, we made it the theme.
We found all of the decorations at Party City. The cake was from Sam’s Club as well as some of the food. The rest of the food was made by Zeke’s Lolas and Tita Erin. We had the finger foods everyone still loves: dinosaur chicken nuggets, pizza rolls, and tater tots. The Lolas made Filipino spaghetti, Lumpia, and seafood delight. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it. Tita Erin made rice krispies in the shape of Legos.
Zeke’s favorite Titos and Titas were in attendance. We don’t have many friends with children yet, but Zeke loved playing with them all the same. Our parties are always a whole day affair with constant eating and just hanging out. Everyone got Zeke Legos and books, so there was no shortage of new goodies to play with.
I can’t stress this enough, but thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has been with us to watch Zeke grow these past two years. All of his Lolos, Lolas, Titos, Titas, Ninongs, and Ninangs, thank you. Your support means the world to us. In the words of Zeke and Pinkfong, “thank you, shark doo doo doo doo doo.”
