That 1st Birthday Charade...





On Sunday Kon and his family threw a birthday party for his two boys who just turned 1 and 4 and happen to be birthday mates. Cool, right? 

Sunshine, Sasha bonΓ© and I were there to partayyyyy. 

Sunshine was so eager to see Kon's wife and we spent a lot of time trying to scope her out. LOL. Mrs Kon is so young and sweet and cute btw. And Kon, forget all this noise and badt guy levels he forms on the blog, Kon really seems to be the kind of husband with whom you'd have peace and joy. They both look so young and playful, with what seems to be a very fun, easy going relationship. Guys, they're so cute together! 

We had a really good time. I talked to Sunshine a lot and it's going to be the last time. I don't like all these people that will just be nodding and nodding and you'd be talking and talking, you won't even know when you tell them all your secrets 😳. Sunshine, I'm unfriending you

LOL. 

I also got to meet the lovely MFA of Lifetitude's blog, where I "discovered" Kon. Turns out Kon is her husband's younger brother. Waaawu! 


Anyways, We were debating on the wisdom of throwing 1st year birthday parties. Some people think it's a must-do, some think it's a waste of time and money because the child doesn't even know what's going on. My sister thought so too and didn't throw her second son a 1st birthday party. However few months down the line a lot of people started to query her about it, saying that it is terribly wrong. My mum even claimed that my elder brother was very quiet and anti-social until they did a 1st birthday party for him, and suddenly he blossomed; BOOM! *Yimu*. During the party (my nephew's) I was just looking around and thinking what a weist, this infant doesn't even know what's going on, see how lost and confused he looks. LOL. Yet, I can't deny that the 1st year of a child's life is truly worth celebrating. It really is.

Anyways where do you stand; 1st birthday party, a must have or a waste? And tell us why you think so, I'm planning ahead πŸ˜‰.

  1. Nne, I'm of the strong view that 1st birthday parties are a must. The party doesn't even have to be big to the extent of canopy parties, it can be a small celebration within the immediate family. Just make sure there's presence of cakes and pictures.
    Infact the 1st birthday takes priority over other birthdays, you can choose not to celebrate them. For crying out loud your Child/ren made it to his first year, that's survival.
    At work, one of my colleagues was forming he didn't want to celebrate his daughter's 1st birthday (1st issue o, can you imagine). Omo I was among the people that gave him all the reasons why he should. He gave religious reasons (Muslim) and all the blah blah he said. The funny guy later did something small without inviting us. yeye guy.
    Infact Thelma I can write an article on why a child's 1st birthday must be celebrated. Also with these few points of mine I hope I have convinced you and not confused you.

    1. I totally get why you'd say that looking at this picture, but funny enough Sunshine pulls it off without the makeup and jewelry. You see her and rarely notice the absence of all those things because she's really cute just like you said. I'm actually quite jealous πŸ˜’

    4. It's amazing how our eyes see what we've conditioned our hearts to push, there I was telling myself what my next move would be if I was that young and available.
      Sunshine is beautiful and attractive, earrings or make up would ruin the raw beauty that some of us admire.

  12. I've always thought first birthdays were a waste of money if done big. Maybe for family only but invest money for the children.
