I am very upset with every single one if my family members....my sisters...mom...dad...hubbys siblings and his mom...ALL OF THEM. Not one of them even cared enough to call my 3 year old on her birthday.

I think from here on out, I will forget they exist. They don't even have 5 minutes to call her and say happy birthday?? There is no excuse. Fuck off family. I am done with them ALL

I'm sorry that would tick me off, too! I know it doesn't mean as much as if it were family, but Happy Birthday to your pretty little girl!

Thank you. I am glad she is young enough to not notice. :( I grew up with crappy family too. No one ever called...nothing. I swore my kids would have a better family than I did.

If they didn't make it a habit with you, why would you expect them to make it a habit with your kids?  Nobody calls my kids on their birthdays, nor do I call any family members on their birthdays.  It is not a big deal.

Wow... Cutting her off from her grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins all of them.. just because they didn't call on a birthday she isn't going to remember in a few years anyway? 

Over-reacting big time here.

We live 9 hours away. They never call to check up on the kids and see how they're doing or anything, yet they throw a hissy fit if we don't make the kids call and talk to them on THEIR birthdays. One thing I did have growing up was a grandmother that did call every other birthday or so...but she lives in Germany...so I didn't expect much.

Why should I bother with them when they can't do something as simple as calling my kids on their birthdays?
