My birthday is terrible every year. Its January 7th so I'm the only one who doesn't get a birthday celebration. Everybody gives me Combo birthday/Christmas gifts or just ignores my birthday altogether. It never fails I spend that day at home alone with the kids and my son who has special needs always melts down left and right. When I was in school it was always the first day back from break. Teachers wouldn't allow a party like the rest of the kids got on the first day. Everybody is partied out so even as a young child nobody came to my birthday parties. Its just a bad time to have a birthday.
this year I'm taking it into my own hands. I told my mom all I want for my birthday is cash and a shopping trip with her. I arranged a friend to keep my special needs son that day since the lighting in stores lead to massive, violent meltdown.
I'm so excited! My 2 year old is coming with us but she is so easy to take its not an issue. This year I'm going to make my birthday a good day. And you know what? The money I get is going to be spent on me. Not the kids, not household needs, but me. And I'm not even going to feel guilty about it so take that terrible birthdays!

I know how you feel. My birthday is January 1st. My whole family has actively worked to make my birthday suck, even after I told them what they were doing to me. SUbsequent relationships made it worse. This year, I am giving DF one last chance to pull a miracle out of his ass or from here on out, I am ditching him with the kids and I am going to a hotel.

Yep sometimes us moms just have to say forget it I'm going to spoil myself. At least I was born late. I was due on December 28th which is my mom's birthday!

I just want a day off on my birthday (no work, no cooking, no cleaning).....and I get it every year. I don't want or need presents. I don't want money or parties. I just want to relax.

 Good for you!!  My birthday is at the end of January, but it's 3 days after our youngest daughter's birthday, so all the planning and everything always goes to her, which it should.  I just feel like mine gets overlooked or is always last minute.  So I know how you feel.
