-Go in your room , we are getting your stuff ready! Says my mom.
I wait in my room, I write in my journal. It’s December 21st. I’m at my mom's house.
They are getting a surprise for me. Tomorrow I’m going to go to my dad’s and spend time there for my birthday. My Mimi comes in.
-Cayce, you can come out now! ,she says. I walk out, and I see Unicorn decorations and streamers. A couple of good friends are there, I haven’t seen them in a while. My Pop is there. -Surprise! Say all say at the same time. I put a hand over my mouth, my eyes start getting blurry. We start playing family. I was the mom, Alexis is the baby, Natalie was the teenager. -Kids come on! It’s time to eat!, exclaimed my mom form the kitchen. I smell my Mimi’s homemade Mac and cheese and chicken potstickers. We drink Ginger Ale, Sprite and my favorite kind of juice, fruit punch. I get a plate, a spoonful of mac and cheese, three chicken potstickers and a cup of fruit punch.
My friends and I go sit at the table, we talk about what I am going to get for my birthday, and about sports.
We finish our dinner and after playing family again, we jump in my little sister’s trampolin, and pretend it’s an airplane. We are going on a trip.
-Time for cake!, calls my mom.
We all run in, my mom lights the candles and turns off the lights. They sing happy birthday.
I cut up the chocolate cake, it is delicious!
-It’s time for presents!, my mom says.
We all go to the living room. My mom brings some bags an some wrapped presents.
I take off the wrapper of one.
-What is this?, I ask
-It’s rocks for some sort of animal.
I see two other little things. A mermaid with a shell necklace that is also a unicorn, and a mermaid castle with an open door.
-It’s a fish!, I yell.
-Yes, but there is one more thing in there! My mom says.
Of course it’s the fish tank. Now my dad brings out the fish. It’s blue, mixed with red and pink.
-The name is Moonlight!, I say out loud.
