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?”

Scissor Move

“At my niece’s birthday party, everyone was so busy assembling the toy car that no one noticed my son making off with the scissors. (He was fine…my sister caught him at it moments after this pic was snapped).”

Barney And Fiends

“Beaver, Pennsylvania 1992 at a birthday party (mine I believe). I was obsessed with Barney, but I knew this one was a “fake.” His eyes still haunt me in the darkest depths of my nightmares.”

Birthday By George

“For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, we made masks of her obsession, George Michael, for all of the little girls. Didn’t realize how scary it would look when they pulled them all on at the same time.”

The Bikini Cake

“This is my granddad and myself.  I can only assume he was so proud of the cake that he decided that his only grandson needed to be a part of such a grand occasion.”
