Baby Shark

“This is me in 1976 in my bedroom. My father thought putting a pool table in my bedroom was an appropriate birthday gift for a 2 year old.”

Bubbles & Cake

“Here’s a photo from my 3rd birthday in 1980. It was quite the party judging by all that champagne I’m eyeing.”

The Birthday Party

“This is me at my 9th birthday party… apparently, it was laundry day as well. My best friend hit me in the face with a mini-golf putter at the Dairy Queen. It was an accident. Only two friends and my brother were still around for cake after I got home from the hospital. Really Mom, were there no clean shirts around?”

Three’s A Crowd

“My three cousins all have birthdays very close together in October and weren’t thrilled to share their Jack-o-Lantern birthday cake and party. ”

The Throne

“My grandma had a old toilet in her backyard for years. One day someone decided to put the baby inside the toilet. It seemed like a good idea at the time…”

Crappy Birthday

“This must have been my 10th or 11th birthday. It was a custom that the cousins would give out the birthday spankings, but apparently it got a little rough. I think I look terrified. It’s like a scene out of “Lord of the Flies.” Notice the John Travolta poster in the background, and the fact that my brother is laughing maniacally and holding a leather belt.”

Barbie Gone Wild

“My mom attempted the Barbie cake for my 8th birthday. A neighbor gave her general instructions, and my brother and best friend were clearly unimpressed with the results.”
