Do any of your family members call your kids on their birthdays?


Not one single person besides my step father and best friend called to wish my son happy birthday today. Im not sure how I should feel about it?

Yes, though my mother usually forgets the exact day and ends up calling a few days before or a few days after. She doesn't remember how old she is let alone anyone else.

Most times if they remember. I forgot my bros on the 10th this month.

Yes my family does, dh's family not so much. I would be upset if they didn't. My family has always been great about my kids' birthdays.

My mom does & their dad does if he has to work. And that all depends on when the party is. If it's the day of the birthday then he takes the day off. If it's another day he tries to open so he is available in the evening after school. And he takes the day of the party off.

My sister, SIL, my oldest niece, DS's grandparents and great-grandma all give DS a call on his birthday.

Our parents call the kids.  I email my dad to remind him.

I would never expect my father to remember my kids birthdays. He doesnt even remember mine.. but my mom knows today is his birthday and she never called..


Im just glad my son didnt notice.
