yesterday was my bday & it dh was gonna take me out for my bday but mom wouldn't keep the kids for me, also mom forgot to get me something (not a big deal but a card would've been nice), and i know this is silly but my mom didn't buy me or make me a cake & she has every year but this one..i'm not mad at her just a little hurt oh & my dad forgot my bday until mom told me "happy bday" i was like wth? after 27 years you'd think he'd remember oh and my dh and i were gonna get a movie on pay per view since we had the kids but he thought he's play the ps3 instead and ignore bday was crappy

  • Yesterday was my birthday as well, and I can't help but thinking you are probably at a surprise party, right now. Planning one for someone can be so stressful and sometimes results in circumstances like your in........ what ever happens... HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!!!

  • My parents barely ever even acknowledged my birthday even when I was growing and never after the age of 16 until they died. I never expect anything for my birthday and if something happens I am pleasantly surprised. I honestly don't care if anyone says anything when it's my birthday. But I do make sure to acknowledge my kids!

  • You're not being too sensitive. I would let them know that your feelings are hurt. We always have a cake for each other's birthday in our family. My dad is very forgetful as it is. He always loses his keys and glasses and forgets important dates. He thinks my bday is July 8th but it's the 6th! lol Because I know he is forgetful it doesn't bother me. My mother however aslways makes sure our bdays are special every year and I will be 32.

  • My parents have forgotten my birthday every year since I was 28 and I'm about to turn 34. Most birthdays my husband grabs me something from Walmart on his drive home from work (on the day of my birthday).

    I'm really with the anon that talks about it all not being a big deal. It's really narcisitic to want a whole day to revolve around you because your mom gave birth to you that day. Sone countries celebrate the mother on birthdays instead of the person whose birthday it is.

    I think you're being too sensitive and immature. I think if you had a more grateful and appreciative spirit that your husband would have done something special for your birthday. But instead you have a pouty, selfish attitude so he figures why bother.
