My 18th birthday is on February 10, which is very exciting and scary. Perhaps even scarier than the new rights I have as a U.S. citizen is what my mom is planning for my party this Saturday.
My mom knows how to throw a party, but I think she is going overboard with my birthday this year. She is going to recreate my first birthday: same theme, same cake design, and the actual candle I used for my first birthday…plus an “8”. This seems fine and dandy…except that it means it will be “cookie monster” themed.
I guess that she is doing so much that she is kicking me out of the house for the day while she decorates. I don’t like surprises, so I’m not sure if I’m going to enjoy this or hate it.
