Today, Macky officially turns 13! He has been wanting to be a teenager because for him, it is the time to be more independent and of course to be extra attractive to girls his age. He would no longer be labelled as "bata" or "totoy" by his basketball playmates or by any young girl in the subdivision. He wants to impress all the girls eh!
He first wanted to have a pool party for his 13th birthday celebration just like last year but I am too lazy to move and prepare all the needed stuff for the party so I just encourage him to have a family dinner in the restaurant and then buy him a new cellular phone as a birthday remembrance.
As much as possible, we also do not want to spend so much for a party considering the status of our finances. My brother (Macky's dad) sent some amount for Macky's birthday so we will just work with the budget and hopefully save some for Macky's Christmas party expense at school *wink*. I am just thankful that our teen agreed to the idea of celebrating his 13th birthday in the restaurant with the whole family minus his friends.
Our little kiddo is officially a teen and I pray that he will continue to be healthy and focus on the things that he want to achieve. Kuya, now that you are 13 I hope that you will be a better man setting good example as big brother to Yoshi and Bella. We will always be here to support you all the way.
We love you! Happy 13th birthday!
