October 4th, 1971
Today, daddy gave me a diary to write all of my feelings in. It was weird, because daddy never gives me gifts. Since mommy passed, he is quiet and does not talk to me.
He just gave me this little book that came with a key, and wished me a happy birthday. He didn't say anything after that.
My first day of second grade is next week. I can't wait to see all of my friends!
I love school. I have a lot of friends and I love my teachers! Daddy told me that I won't have friends for long. I don't know why he said that, but he probably was tired and had another one of those nasty drinks that only grown-ups can have.
I wish I could have cake today for my birthday, but daddy said no. I kept asking and he kept saying, "mistakes like you shouldn't have cake for their birthday,"
It really hurt my feelings, but I think he was just mad at something. I hope he wasn't mad at me.
