Happy 13th Birthday Manga Dork Part 2

The Birthday Girl...
The birthday girl and her VIP posse. LOL! The two on the left are her BFFs and the one on her right is the lil sis to the one in orange. The blonde one reminded me of a"Jem" doll every time I looked at her. Do you remember those "Barbie-type" dolls? They were the "Bratz" of the 80s!

Wild Child had to join them too!

Wild Child LOVES her Chucks. She knows that "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!"

Niece and Nephew were all decked out for the party too! Niece won the "Who Knows Manga Dork Best" contest!

Cutie Patootie was terrified of the DJ and his lights and loud music. She stayed outside for a LONG time.

Ok, I am going to have to give her a talk about that pose. Has she been working out to my Carmen Electra strip aerobics DVD?! LOL! Oh the things you have to explain to kids...

13 things I love about my Manga Dork:

1. We love the same tv shows/movies. I love having "veg out" time with her. Expecially watching the seasons of Gilmore Girls.

2. We love the same music. We jam out in our car with the windows rolled down and sunroof open.

3. She isn't afraid to be an individual, and only falls prey to peer pressure occasionally.

4. I love our tradition of eating chinese when "bad things" happen.

5. We can be like BFFs, but she still respects me as a Mother.

6. She wants me to be a part of her life.

7. She loves her family.

8. She can speak her mind, but needs to learn to censor some things.

9. She is a great student and loves to learn. She is science minded like her Dad.

10. She like to go to scrapbooking getaways with me. She is very creative.

11. She is the only person I can look at and see myself because I am adopted. She is the only person I know who has my blood...(ok, now I am tearing up)

12. She can laugh at herself. She cries often. She is a worrier. Ok, maybe I should just say...I can see myself in her. LOL!

13. We can share "inside jokes." She cracks me up...

Stay tuned...Time to go inside the party...
