Birthday Badges

When I was younger, my mother used to buy me these birthday tiaras and badges. I don't remember getting my first one or what age I was at, but I can’t remember a single birthday where I was’t rocking my silly birthday tiara and my badge with a big smile across my face. Every year, on me or my sisters birthday, we would go right down to party city and pick out a birthday tiara of our choice,  of course as little kids we’d pick out the most crazy and bright looking  tiara to show off the fact that it was our birthday , make sure every stranger that walked by knew it was our birthday, and indeed every stranger  did know and wished  us a very happy birthday I’d thank them with a smile and continue my walk full of pride, confidence, and happiness with that crown on my head and badge on my shirt, It meant the world to me and it meant the world to my moms to make her little baby girl happy. We still carry out this tradition till this day, for 13 years, this new year coming up making it 14.
