I am retired now but for about the last 10 years that I worked, I always took vacation for my birthday and Mothers Day, and my kids birthdays. I did shift work and worked weekends. I just always arranged ahead of time to have those days off...mine and my YDD's birthdays are in April and my ODD's is in December.

What do you do for a living

Quoting WillowGrace: Yep! I work on mine, my husbands, my children's, if I'm scheduled I'm working! I only work 3 months of the year and it's only on Saturday and Sunday, however I make incredible money. So if a birthday falls on one of those days, I work, with 5 kids, we need all the money we can get! Those 3 months (first weekend of August till the last weekend of November) of income pays for Christmas, school shopping, shoes, clothes, supplies, ect. And groceries! It also pays for their birthday parties and gifts. So it upsets them sometimes that I have to work on someone's birthday or mine, but they all understand why I do it. And I am glad I'm no longer a teenager! I've been working since I was 16, (had a child at 15) and now I'm 32, and loving every moment of getting older!

Nope. I always put advance notice in for it off. I also take the kids birthday off and keep them home from daycare to do something fun.
