Just finished ours this morning... Been planning this pero nag-stay lang sa mind ko yung plan due to our busy schedules... it was only last Monday night, on our way home that we have realized na super duper lapit na yung birthday ni Jade.
Just the same, we know naman talaga what Jade wants - to have a chance to spend time with us and the rest of the family in any resort. Need not to be in a very far place. Basta may swimming pool, masaya na yun. So we have agreed to have our dinner and spend a few hours in a nearby resort. Di naman kami mago-overnight... Night swimming lang talaga. Kaya lang parang bitin kung ganun lang. He-he.
And so, i woke up early yesterday just to work on a simple invites.... parang note nga lang eh... ha-ha... had it printed on a plain bond paper lang and tried to be earlier than the usual time of fetching Jade from school. My motive is to be able to request one of her teachers to attach the note sa handbook nila. Ibinilin ko rin na pati si Jade, lagyan para di niya mahalata. At para di magkaroon ng chance ang mga kids na basahin yung note, itinaon ng teacher niya na may activity and collected their handbooks. Siya na rin ang nagpasok sa bag nito one by one.
The note says,
We are the proud parents of your child's classmate, (full name ni Jade) and we are very happy to inform you that she is turning 6 tomorrow.
She's very much aware of the occasion, but totally no idea of what's in store for her tomorrow. And part of it is a simple surprise celebration inside their classroom which will be done during their break time only.
If your child loves Mc Donald food items, no need to prepare snacks for their recess as we have chosen them to provide a meal for the entire class. Rest assured as well that we won't be serving sodas.
We got one request though - a confirmation that this note has reached you. Kindly send your acknowledgement at (cellphone number), together with your child's name. This will also serve as our guideline for the headcount.
Your cooperation will be very much appreciated. Thank you very much. God bless!
And i'm so happy kasi lahat talaga sila, nag-respond sa note ko. Ang galing! He-he. So before we went to bed last night, may final headcount na ako.
Hanggang kaninang umaga, wala talaga siyang idea. Nagtaka na wala siyang baon pero when i told her na maaga akong pupunta at dadalhan ko siya ng hopia from Goldilocks, na-excite na siya (it's her favorite).
Kahapon pa lang, um-order na ako sa mc do ng food. I ordered for Burger Mc Do Meal with Funchum doy packed juice (instead of coke), Spaghetti Ala Carte, 6-pcs Chicken Nuggets Ala Carte and the Coca cola Contour Glass as her give away. Which we picked up na lang from the store as early as 8:15am kanina. Have learned na mas mahal pala ang bawat food item pag ipina-deliver. Wala lang. He-he. Sayang din. Madadaanan din naman yung store kasi before makarating sa school nila.
