It's my (pony) birthday!

 

Today I turn a whoppin' 33. And I asked everyone for a My Little Pony themed day. My husband and friends delivered. My bestie got me 3 of those Equestria Girls mini figures plus a Rainbow Dash headband and a coffee mug. My husband got me the big MLP Target exclusive Mane 6 pony set plus the Applejack merpony and a handful of glitter blindbags. My mother-in-law got me the InstaPot. And then my daddy sent me some money that I used to order a jigsaw puzzle board, The Art of My Little Pony: The Movie book, and went to Target with the rest and got the Strange Things Vynls of Dustin and Lucas, the Abe Sapien pop, the MLP snow globe, and the Songbird Serenade coin bank and plush. What a haul!! I was on cloud 9.

 

Plus we ate at a great Korean place for dinner. Had BiBimbop. Mmmmmm. 

 

I hope you guys had a great day, too.

NetGalley Review
Happy Birthday! - Mamoru Suzuki Happy Birthday! - Mamoru Suzuki

We received this book to give an honest review.

 

A very cute story with very good pictures that tell of how your birthday came to be. From the time you were born to the time you crawled and so forth. Happy Birthday! Is very fitting for this story. There is too many words to the page and I think that is perfect for the younger kids because they mostly like to look at pictures. Now the only thing I will say about the book that may ask questions is the part where the mom is breastfeeding the baby. Now it doesn't bother me at all and I am all for it, but for some people it may. 

 

I did like the ending where it says "Fly wherever and with whomever you would like! It doesn't matter how far you go; I will love you. Always." This is the perfect way to end this story.

Happy Birthday, Bad Kitty - Nick Bruel

I enjoyed reading this book. It's a very quick and easy read, but quite funny and adorable.

This is the first Bad Kitty book I have read after the [book:Bad Kitty|690955] picture book, which I also enjoyed. While this book does have chapter headings, there is not very much text and it mostly relies on the pictures. This is not inherently bad, but I think it is good to know going into it. It reads more like a picture book or graphic novel, rather than a chapter book.

I did like that there were little educational things thrown in like why cats can't eat chocolate, why cats scratch things, and different breeds of cats. It's a great way for young readers to learn about cats in a fun and humorous way.

Great book for cat lovers. This is a fun read that we cat people can really relate to.

So... this happened today
Happy Birthday to You! - Dr. Seuss

My birthday is in April.  I usually end up doing lunch, maybe dinner, too, with my parents.  I don't like doing much: stay in, watch a movie, read a lot.   It's my favorite times. 

 

So I hear my mom going 'I want to have a big party, but we don't have to say it's for her!'

 

And I'm thinking huh, that's weird.   So I yell downstairs, 'who are you having a party for?'

 

My mom answers that it's for her when she gets better, but this is after a long pause and some hushed whispers between her and my sister.   

 

'I don't want a party.'

 

'It'll be small.   Just family and friends.   We won't tell them it's for you!'

 

'But I want to watch movies and read on my birthday!   Really, that'll make me happy!'

 

'No, no, this party will be great.'

 

So.... I'm having a party this year, for the first time in years.   I'm dreading it, but not telling my mom because this is for her, really.   And seeing her happy will be my gift, I guess!   I'm going to do a lot of self-care and just relax beforehand and afterwards; that much of that many people will exhaust me.  I'm very good in social situations, in general, but I'm also an introvert.   I just want people to leave me the hell alone so I can read!

 

could emphatically tell her no.   But why?   She's bored right now due to the illness, and really wants to do something for me.   She enjoys the company and thinks I'm too lonely. I do enjoy company, but I need long periods of time alone, too.   Readercon is okay because I'm not talking to people all day - and I can escape to the consuit, sit and read in the hallways, or read in the back of a panel if I really need a break.   It's also full of so many like minded people that I don't mind a slight amount of exhaustion, or even social anxiety, for what I get from Readercon.    

 

My party, however, will be full of people who want to talk about things that are not, say, books or movies or comics.   So it will exhaust me much more quickly.
