hello, my granddaughter thea is celebrating her birthday today. her mom had promised a little party for her on sunday, august 28 because there will be no work and that there will be time to go to the market and cook. she isnt hard to please little girl. she knew that there will be no party today, which is her birthday hence she just stayed in her room and made her assignments. i for one cant just make it pass like that. i know it will make her happy so i planned a little surprise for her. i have told the professor about a month ago and he said he will send a jar of chocolate toffies. and i got it just in time yesterday. so, from the office, i passed by the store where i ordered baked macaroni and cheese and a roasted chicken. and i went home earlier than usual. i requested my daughter to pass by the cake house and she bought a little round chocolate cake and candles to lit up after food. then kept it first in the ref together with the ice cream. so we had our dinner, the four of us.. thea (my granddaughter), yeng (my daughter), jan (my son-in-law) and myself. i went to the bedroom with thea and when i announced to her that the professor has sent something for her, her eyes lit up. when she saw the big jar of chocolates, she was all smiles. she said "just what i wanted". and then her mom and dad came called us both and there was the cake with lighted candles and the ice cream on the table. she was hugging us all so tight saying thank you and she said i will chat with the professor and say thank you for his present. do you ever make surprises for a little girl's birthday? what reaction do you get from it? ann

hello jaiho, very true that grandparents seem to be more doting when it comes to grandchildren. you can ask the professor especially if it is about nini. and yes, the professor is very generous with her. he had previous presents on different occasions before this. thank you. have a nice day. ann

Sweety That is so nice, i am happy it reached in time, i was afraid, it may not reach by 28th, i used to ask in the post office, and was also tracking the status in net, it was showing, 'it is in transit', tomorrow only it will show 'delivered' So enjoy the grand feast with lights, candles, convey my birth day wishes. I will call to her cell phone at 10pm your time, that is my 7.30 am in morning. Thanks for sharing this in mylot. Best of luck. Professor

I've never encountered such a situation to do a party for a child. for an adult man but not small. I think every young child will enjoy decorating their friends and gifts. is very important to be able to enjoy one day odstavim Yet birthday is one year. experience must be very nice and beautiful.real pleasure. I wish you to succeed. nice day! and pleasant birthday!

I dont have a little girl yet but my niece isnt too hard to please. She loves being a "diva" with music and acting, so anything dealing with music and girlie stuff is perfect for her. I would love to be able to plan a surprise birthday for a little girl.

First of all I want to greet your granddaughter a happy birthday. In our family tradition, we never pass it even just a simple celebration like having cake and pasta. Though we can still celebrate again the big day in some other day or during weekends. We make some surprises on what could we give to her. Sometimes we will act like we don't buy what she will be requested, but then we will buy it as a surprise gift for her.

Oh you are really a very lovable granny to your grandchild. Your Thea must be so proud of having you as her Lola. Children can easily be made happy, with even little things that we could give them, specially on their natal day. So, on their natal days, we adults should let it pass without anything to surprise them.

What a nice memory you have created in this child's life. When we do things like this for a child we are so busy thinking about what to do and how to do it, that we overlook the fond memory we create. Blessings to all of you

i am pretty crafty so when my daughters were younger we did crafts for their parties. one year we made bouncey balls (from a kit), one year we had a princess party, that sort of thing.

hello cher, we had those too when she was 7 and 8 years. its just that lately, all grown ups are at work and the birthday fell on a working day hence she knew we will celebrate it at a later date. but there - she had a surprise! ann
