13th Birthday

Posted: August 18, 2014 in Uncategorized

IMG_0611[1]Yesterday was my birthday. I’m now 13 and will be in the 8th grade in September.

The question people are always asked on their birthdays is, “So how do you feel?”. Not that I mind, but they should know from experience that it feels no different, no matter how old you are turning.

Anyway, both of my parents made me fried shrimp and onion rings for supper because it’s my favorite, and that was really good.Β  For dessert, my mom made me a lemon cake because I love lemons, and it was also very good.

On our birthdays, we get to pick what we want to eat for supper and also what kind of cake we want. If we want a surprise cake, we can ask for that too.

Niles is out of town now, so we are going to “finish” my birthday when he comes back home. Then I’ll get my presents and also, probably our mom is going to make another cake and we’ll probably have a semi-special supper again too πŸ™‚

    Happy birthday for yesterday. Mine’s next week, I’ll be rather more than 13! Everyone keeps asking me what I want and I have absolutely no idea.

    • Thanks Libby πŸ™‚ I know how you feel – I almost never know what to ask for. I wound up asking for a knife and the Sherlock books, but I had a hard time thinking of even that! I actually don’t know what presents I’ve been given yet, as one of our family members was out of town on my birthday and we didn’t open them.

      Maybe you can ask for some maple syrup πŸ˜‰
