No Happy Birthday song ?!?

Now I've been to 4 little kids birthdays in the past month and not once have they sang Happy Birthday! Tonight I had to ask and apparently no one sings it anymore.

*Jawdrop*

Now I do this for a living; I plan birthdays, events and award ceremonies. So I guess someone forgot to include me on th memo.

No happy birthday song , come on!

Now it doesn't end there... Yes, you guess it alright...no Birthday CAKE either. They do a plastic or styrophone (sp?) cake and cover it with gumpaste. Then the give out cakepops or cupcakes.

Am I old fashion? Crazy? Lame? I root for cake, ice cream and singing! Who is with me?

Um no, not in this house. We will have cake and you will listen to me sing Happy Birthday off key if you want your present! LOL

Hey cake, pie, cupcake or cakepops...it is all good as long as you serve it. What is the point of a faux simple cake? And if the kid prefers pie over cake well it is his/her birthday!
