  • we have ONE child and it happens whenever anyone asks when his birthday is. My husband will think about it for a moment, then turn to me and say something like "its in april right?" haha its endearing.

  • My DH remembers our kids birthdays for the most part...He does sometimes confuse the dates for DS and ODD, though... DS is June 4, and ODD is July 7 (she was due July 4, though)...So he always has to double check the 4th and the 7th. lol. We have 4 kids, so I think an occassional mix up is okay--so long as it's not EVERY time. lol

  • My husband can't even remember how to spell one of the kid's names, lol. Her name is Brenna and he spells it Breena all the time. He also didn't know how to spell her middle name which is CaitlEn (with an E not and I or Y).
    And, yes, this is his kid and she is EIGHT! I couldn't believe he didn't know how to spell her name. WTH? I don't think he's forgotten any of their birthdays (we have 5 kids).
