Long story short – because photos speak louder than words – one of the dinnerclub ladies (my sisters) couldn’t afford to throw her little one a first birthday party so we told her that it wasn’t necessary we’d do a tea and cake and she can throw a party next year. Sad-hearted she agreed – little did she know we had ganged up, formed a secret group on whatsapp, and were each contributing a little something to make the day special for both her and her little one.
Who doesn’t love a party after all?!
And in my opinion the first birthday party isn’t for the child, it’s a celebration to the parents (or in this case mother) on surviving the first year!
