So, yesterday was my birthday...I turned (GASP!) 31. I had almost 100 people tell me happy birthday on facebook. My bestfriend brought me a dozen gourmet cupcakes, which is entirely too many for me to eat so I had to share with my kiddos and of course her! :) My husband has been on third shift for almost a week and he signed a card and had our boys sign it. My own mother didn't even call me for my birthday but just wrote on my fb "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" and my sweet MIL sent me a text and called me and she will most likely give me 50.00 and a card.... Usually some of this would probably all make me a tad bit mad but this year, I really genuinly do not care....DID I GROW UP???? When the hell did that happen??? I think I am more bothered by the fact that I don't care then by the fact that my own mother doesn't seem to care...hmm...

I haven't cared about it for awhile. I just turned 43. I am not sure at what age I stopped caring. I don't even have my birth date on facebook. The ones that really know me will send a birthday wish either by phone or text.

No one ever did anything for my birthday and now it's not important to me at all. I actually despise birthday parties or events and don't attend them, I find them to be a complete waste of time.

I wouldn't turn it down, but my an mother? I think it has something to do with the fact tat my son's birthday is the day before mine so I am kind of an after thought!

 My 30th birthday was the one I stopped caring about.  My oldest had been born 6 days before, so we were pretty preoccupied.  Since then, I don't much care.

My birthday is Saturday and I will be 38. I don't need gifts or people remembering it, but I get to spend the day with my family and we made special plans just for my birthday. It is important to me, but in a different way than when I was younger.
