Hola there, everyone! Hello! Today is my birthday, and we had a nice party. Here is how it went. So I was standing at the edge of the party room, hoping, hoping, HOPING all the guests would come. The invitations I sent out surely arrived to them safely…or at least I hoped. “Oh don’t be silly,” I told myself. “You know everyone’s coming. For goodness sake, you actually HANDED the invitations to your sisters. And your friends confirmed they’d be there. So why are you nervous?” I argued with myself for a while on why I should be nervous and what could go wrong. This was my first time actually hosting a party on my own. Mama helped with the baked snacks, but otherwise, I’d done the party planning, decorating, and all. There were so many things that could go wrong. What if someone ate too much and got sick? What if they lost their snacks to the carpet?! What if..what if…. I was interrupted by a big, loud…
“….Happy Birthday, Josefina!” I glanced up to see my adopted sisters, Molly and Cécile, and my friends Jasmine and Emilie. I couldn’t help but smile. Why was I such a worry wart? Nothing could ruin a great party with friends. “Gracias!” I cried. “Thank you! Welcome to my birthday party. I have some fun activities planned after we eat, but otherwise, what would you all like to do first?”
“Psst, look inside,” Molly grinned.
Everyone crowded around the table, eager to get their hands on those tasty cupcakes, cookies, glasses of milk and other dainties. I made sure each guest had what they wanted before I ate some delicious food myself.
After eating, we played hide-and-go-seek, tag, duck-duck-goose, telephone, family and even made up stories to tell. “I don’t want the party to end just yet,” Jasmine groaned, but there was nothing else to do!
After an hour straight of just dancing nonstop, you can probably guess that we were pooped! We plopped on the floor and rested for a while before…
When is your doll’s birthday? Do you celebrate your doll’s birthday?
