I’ve seen lots of birthday hats at my parties over the past years. I’m thankful Mom always makes sure we have a fun hat, good treats, and a nice party with my siblings. Birthdays are a good time to remember the past, so I am looking back at my previous birthdays.
In 2014, I turned one. Boy did I think I was all grown up and we had a swell party to celebrate. Emma and Katie were both there and we had cake and ice cream which we had to wait to eat. The waiting is always tough!
I turned two in 2015. This year I had a blast, Emma was into stealing my treats, and Katie was trying to guard them. Katie was an awesome big sister, and she taught me a lot about life.
Turning three in 2016 didn’t really work out very well. Katie passed away on the morning of my birthday, just ten days shy of her own fourteenth birthday. She would have wanted me to celebrate, but the mood was very different that year.
Madison joined us when I turned four in 2017. My party was the first one she ever attended and she was a little Miss Manners.
2018 was the last party of mine Emma attended which is kind of sad. I turned five and had a super fancy hat. Madison ordered me this giant cake with purple all over it. The three of us had a great time celebrating.
In 2019, I turned six and crazy Olivia was a member of our family. We tried lots of birthday hats on the girl, but she was not at all interested in wearing one. She is a big fan of cake and ice cream, we did find out.
COVID didn’t stop my party in 2020 in the least. We partied on and enjoyed some tasty treats. Olivia was old enough to actually wear a hat too.
Last year in 2021, I turned eight. We ordered some fancy cupcakes from the Three Dog Bakery and had a real nice party together. I’m lucky, actually, as none of my parties have been rained out yet.
This year remains to be seen. My party hat and the treats are secured, I am ready to be nine, and party until the cat comes home!
