Bela’s 1st BirthdayUncategorized | Nirasha Jaganath | June 22, 2008 at 4:07 am
Bela’s 1st Birthday party had 33 kids and their families cramped in our lounge enjoying the wonderful music by Kindermusik teacher Bernadette Baird. She was enthralling enough that all we could see was smiling faces. Maybe it was the yummy samosas or spicy paun bhaji on a cold April morning but there was merriment all over. Maybe too much as the birthday girl Bela fell asleep. Being a strong follower of the song “It’s my party, I can cry if I want to” and drawing the meaning for Bela as “It’s my party, I will sleep if I want to” we let her sleep as long as she wanted. Later, in the presence of a few lingering guests, when she finally awoke, she got to have her cake.. and eat it too.
