I invited all her best friends.
Well, all the ones I had ready access to
and whose mothers would allow them to
come to some strange ladies' house
for the afternoon.
This is not an original idea.
Big threw me just this kind of surprise party
once upon a time.
I had always wanted a surprise birthday party
so one year Big arranged all my Barbies
around the dining room table
and had a
Surprise Breakfast Birthday Party for me.
For the life of me I can't remember if I was
a kid or f I was an adult at the time.
Either way I still remember how special Big
made me feel that morning.
And still does.
I hope Ava feels special.
Oh, and Barbie still likes a good party!
