Phoenix' 3rd Rawr

January was a month filled with all things dinosaur for us. Dinosaur chocolate, dinosaur fruit cutouts, dinosaur sandwiches, dinosaur "bones", dinosaur toy prizes, dinosaur party favors, dinosaur piƱata, dinosaur hats-- you name it. Also, the most popular word that month (besides dinosaur(s)) was, "wait." Phoenix confirmed with me each and every day that he had to "wait for dinosaurs." 

As his birthday party date was getting closer,  anticipation was building up, and so was my stress level. I literally spent just about every day of January planning, prepping, and shopping for his 3rd Rawr. It was tedious, and even though I went to bed late the night before and woke up at 5 am, I was still running behind! And all for four of his  friends who attended. 

Yes, I did say four. I was expecting at least 8-12 kids altogether but about a week before three cancelled, and three confirmed they wouldn't be able to make it, and one wasn't able to show up on the day of. One of my friends said to me, "You are crazy for all those details for just a few kids." But at that point, everything had already been bought (Most of which I thank my mom for sponsoring; I couldn't have done it without her help.), and alot of things had already been made and prepared, and everything was planned out, so I wasn't about to change anything at that point. 

So altogether, there were only 5 kids, including Phoenix, on the day of his party. One kid had to leave super early due to not getting a nap, and so only 4 kids and their parents remained til the end. A few family members were able to attend, and some weren't able to make the trip. We are  very grateful to the few who were able to attend.

Finally the day had come when Phoenix no longer had to wait for all things dinosaur.  He got to spend the afternoon with a few of his friends and family members. He was super excited about his dinosaur birthday party, and in the end that's all that mattered.
Table set-up before guests arrived.
This giant gliding dinosaur balloon was literally a hit for the kids. 
There was food for the herbivores, omnivores, and carnivores, except I forgot to put out the dino nuggets for the carnivores.

More pictures to be added soon!


  1. I am so proud of you my Jenny, proud of who you were since you were little, proud of the challenges that have overtaken in your young life to the present and all your effort. it is priceless for me to have two beautiful grown daughters both with different characters and vision in life but united in many ways. your challenges are huge; yet your efforts are rewarded by God our Lord. You were gifted with many qualities in your life, you are also a Professional graduate with a degree yet do to challenges in life you had to let go of your own self to be 100% with my grandson Phoenix "my Canutito bello" because he has needed you, he is your magnet, he is your little soulmate, he is your companion, the shine in your path, your maturity, strength spiritual and emotional are both growing so that one day you help others to devote part of you and allow people with challenges to never give up on situations regardless of how hard it may seem, how impossible it make look, how life defeating their challenges may be, all the strength comes from above who made heaven and earth, you have strength from the force of love within you towards "your little man Papas' to move forward on a every day challenge, he keeps you going and going and in spite of difficulties of life and health issues life has also challenged him to the point of threatening his little being, and hospital visits, God is your strength, he has both your hands, my little one and yours and he will never abandon you. People may view you with your smile and your on going spirit and judge you without walking your shoes or without connection of your own spirit, your thoughts, your pleas to our good Lord, knowing that you've left your profession, your big checks you use to get enough to enjoy life without struggling, very use to doing your nails, traveling, dining out, just doing your own things and pampering yourself and minimize everything because of the humongous love you have for your Son Phoenix, and dedicating all the time to make your son happy, understanding him, walking in his little shoes, being condescending with him, pampering him, taking time to explain everything to him, being so detail with him, still dining out with him once in a while but always thinking what he loves, what his favorite food is, going to his soccer classes, to the parks, to the beach and so forth. Being a full time mother and going through all your emotional challenges requires all of you, and I am very proud of you. God has a huge purpose for you and little Phoenix. May God bless you always.. I am so happy he had fun with all his dinosaur's and other little ones missed out on the fun. Jenny, I love you and I am proud of you once again. Phoenix will heal in the name and blood of the Lord, and your life is blessed with him, continue your journey that good things are coming your way. If you have every been criticized is sad to know and see that many humans live with a strain heart because of the challenges they also have and a huge burden they carry which doesn't allow them to see that life is to short, life could be very fragile, and is full of circumstances but when we are align with our own self and our emotions we could see through other humans fears, tears, challenges and what not. Enjoy your journey with the Little Papas' my Little Canutito and remember, good things are coming your way, we all graduate in life as we pass through each challenge and the dark clouds don't always last, sun comes out many times with a rainbow, enjoy!

    1. Thank you for those kind beautiful words! ❤❤❤
