What do you do for your birthday?

I'm turning 40 in may and kind of not excited about it.

  • I actually request no party . . .no gifts . . . just a birthday cake (half because I love to see the kids get excited about that) and a very easy low-key day. I value peace more than just about anything these days. :) Happy 40th!

  • DH and I have the same birthday, so we normally just end up going to dinner. Two years ago, we did go to a play, though.

  • It varies from year to year. This year it's on a Tuesday, so I'll work, have the morning with 5yo DD, pick 4yo DS up from school, we'll have lunch, who knows what in the afternoon, then I'll work again, we'll have supper and everyone will go to bed.

    Maybe when I am 40 I will have a big party though. My mom always said her 40s was the best years in her life.

  • If I remember my birthday half the time I would bake and cake and celebrate with my family ^_^. Presents aren't a big thing for me, but getting well wishes and happy birthday from friends and family are nice. (I'm 31)
