On April 2, DH's birthday, we're having a family birthday bash to celebrate 6 family members birthdays (1 in Feb, 4 in March, 1 in April). Originally it was just to celebrate DH and DS' birthdays since they are a few days apart. Then my MIL says that we should celebrate mine too (it was last week) and so to be nice I said we should celebrate hers too (it's next week) and why not celebrate my SIL's since hers is the day before DS. And what the hell, BIL #1 since he just had his in February. I mean that'd be cool (now I don't know if BIL #1 or SIL will actually be able to make it--he works in the oil field, so he may have to work that weekend).
Then yesterday MIL decides, oh let's celebrate BIL #2's birthday too! Ok, well his birthday is in June. So why throw him into the mix? I mean my FIL, my oldest nephew and grand-nephew's birthday are in June too. Let's throw my other nephew in since his birthday is in August. Why don't we just celebrate theirs too? C'mon. I mean is it just me or does that seem a little ridiculous? I realize that BIL #2 lives out of state and we don't get to see him as often, but I don't think that's any reason to do this. Am I wrong? I told DH that I think she's just doing it because he's her favorite. Anyway, I replied to her email and lightheartedly said that it seemed a little strange to celebrate it now since it's so far away. Don't know how she'll take it, but I wanted to at least get my opinion out there.
