So far it has been a normal day other than I received a few more facebook messages and texts from friends and family to say happy birthday.  I was woke up by DD this morning like every morning, came down and found DH playing a video game.  So I made DD breakfast and got her fed and laid down for a nap, cleaned the kitchen, dining room and office.  I will be doing some laundry and vacuming with DD wakes up.  Then I will be doing homework that is due tomorrow.  DH said happy birthday and so far that is it.  I am honestly a bit bummed about it.  I don't need some big thing, we are on a tight budget right now so I understand that going out for dinner or having a day out isn't going to happen.  But at the very least I would have liked to come down and had DH do the usual daily routine stuff and have the house cleaned.  I would have been so happy to wake up to that.  But no.  The really sad part is that I had to plan my own get together for this weekend.  I planned out and invited everyone over to the house for a bbq.  

Am I wrong for feeling a bit frustrated and irritated about this?

I'm sorry! I know how you feel. Last year I planned my birthday get together as well then at the last minute (as I was getting ready) all 4 people who agreed to hang out called and cancelled!

Not at all. I made it clear from the beginning that all birthdays in our home will be celebrated. I decorate the house the night before for my husband and girls. They do the same for me. My husband always goes out of the way to make my day special. I love that he does that.

It could be a lot worse....like in the hospital losing your baby.

I would be hurt. It's your special day but your dh isn't bothering to recognize that.

Have you talked to your dh about how you feel? Men aren't mind readers.

Eh I realize it is just another day for many people but when DH had his birthday I told him to just relax and enjoy the day.  I took care of everything and even made him an awesome dinner.  I think I will be lucky to get that.
