My Birthday 1951 I know the cupcakes have '52 on them, but this is really December 29, 1951. We had a New Year's theme and the new year was going to be 1952. My mother let my sister have a party in 1950 and it was my turn in 1951. She must have decided she made a mistake in letting my sister have so many friends to her party, because I was limited to six and one had to be me, one had to be my sister, and one had to be a cousin. I remember being very upset that I could only invite three of my friends. I begged and pleaded, but six was the limit and there could be no boys. I think I only had two parties growing up because both my sister and I had birthdays right around Christmas and it was a very busy time of the year.
