She was my eldest and we make sure that every occasions of her life is well celebrated. On June 3 she will be celebrating her 3rd birthday and we’re planning to celebrate it on Universal Studios here in Singapore. Last night, as we (my hubby and I) were talking about it, he told me that we are being unfair. When my youngest (Joacquin) celebrated his first birthday, it was just a simple celebration with only us and her sister on the event. I just cooked spaghetti and he bought cake and gives him gifts but no other important relatives present. Unlike my eldest (Ericka), his occasions are less extravagant. So, to make it up with him we are planning to go back home (in the Philippines) to hold a big party for his baptism.
Yes, we are practicing equality with both of them to avoid resentment when they grow up. I think this is one of the many ways to avoid sibling rivalry. This is our way to show them that we love them just the same. Though they won’t probably understand it now, soon they will be looking at pictures and ask me things. By then, we can easily show them that we gave same utmost importance to their occasions. 🙂
