Nemit’s Fifth Birthday
Hello friends, hope you all had a wonderful start to the year. Ours was quite different since we decided to stay at home, unlike the last 4 years when we were out & went all crazy on New Year’s Eve. But it was still as exciting as always. Now, January is special for us for one more reason, and that is our son’s birthday, #NemitTurns5. Yes, it is Nemit’s fifth birthday in a few days! And I really can’t control my excitement anymore.
But there’s a problem!
Before moving on to the birthday discussion, I want to show you guys our New Year Special video. Here we have reviewed the year 2020 by recreating some moments (good and bad) that we can never forget. And while making this video, we realized that the Year 2020 was not that bad!
If you watch the video on YouTube, do leave your comment there and if you have not yet subscribed to our channel, please do so. We would love to see you there.
Now coming back to the problem I was talking about.
This year we have no idea how to celebrate Nemit’s fifth birthday. His b’day is on 19th January, and we have not planned anything yet for his special day.
You may ask why?
Well, just like all his other birthdays, we wanted to make it special by planning an exciting vacation for him with the family. But all our plans went down the drain due to Covid-19.
Though most people have already started traveling, we have still not made up our minds about it. Just trying to keep it safe for our family’s sake. Till December last year, we were hoping that the scenario would change and we might travel once again in January. But no, nothing has changed, at least for us, so no travel plans this time.
I was going through his birthday videos from the last 4 years, and I thought, why not combine them into one. And that’s when I got the idea of writing this post. Here’s what we did on Nemit’s 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th birthday.
Revisiting Birthday Memories –
First Birthday (2017) – We planned Nemit’s first International trip to Malaysia. It was a 9-day long vacation, and we visited Kuala Lumpur, Taman Negara & Langkawi. And, on Nemit’s birthday, we took him to a famous theme park, Sunway Lagoon. We all had a blast that day!
Second Birthday (2018) – For his 2nd b’day, we planned a 10-day long trip to the Andaman Islands. And on Nemit’s b’day, we visited Ross & Smith Islands, popularly known as the Twin Islands. The two islands are connected with a strip of white sandbar, which makes them unique. Nemit had the whole paradise island for himself to enjoy his special day!
Third Birthday (2019) – On his 3rd b’day, we planned another International trip to Thailand. It was a week-long trip, and we stayed at Krabi in an Airbnb. Nemit had the most amazing time there because this one was an impromptu trip & we got to ask his preferences too.

Fourth Birthday (2020) – This was Nemit’s most special birthday because along with the special vacation, he got to celebrate with his friends as well. I call this our lucky trip because it was our 1st trip of the pandemic year. We visited Goa and spent a day in Mumbai, exploring the food & some famous places like Chowpatty & Marine Drive.
On Nemit’s b’day, we did the island hopping tour, watched dolphins, played in the sand, and swam in the ocean. Again, a memorable birthday!
I have taken a few video clips from each of Nemit’s birthdays and made this video, ‘Revisiting Birthday Memories.’ Do check it out; you may find some inspiration to plan a birthday trip for your child too.
We have been having long discussions at home about what to do this year to make Nemit’s birthday as exciting & memorable as the earlier ones. But nothing seems to strike well. And this is the only worry which is haunting me right now.
