So February has come and gone again. It feels like we were just talking about the New Year, and now 2013 officially has two months on us.
My birthday is coming up in March, so I’m thinking about celebrating. Sometimes it makes me sad that we adults don’t have the same kind of great parties kids get, but I guess that’s what happens when you get old and jaded. On the trade off, you get to invite who you want to your parties now, instead of having to invite all the kids in your class so that no one feels left out, even the kids that bullied you or put your pigtails in the inkwells or chased you home with their dinosaur, if you’re as old as I am.
So I want to know what your favorite birthday-related memory is. It can be a kid memory or adult one, I just want to know something that made you happy.
For me, I always go back to my 4th birthday party, where my aunt baked me a Wonder Woman cake. I had a big thing for WW: I had the dolls, I had the Underroos, I had the birthday cake, and its something that’s carried over into my adult life. I have such fond memories of that party that I actually tracked down the cake form from 1979 and bought it for future use. It’s in reserve for when I really need it.
