You forgot your mom's birthday! Now what?
For the record, I honestly can't remember the last time my mother actually remembered MY birthday. I'm totally serious.
I have had some rather interesting birthdays that have lodged themselves in my mind... one in particular was her buying me a cake with someone else's name on it because it wasn't picked up! It said "Happy Birthday John!" lol.
I have to call her to remind her when her grandchildren's birthdays are. I have no idea why she doesn't remember or take steps to remember, but she doesn't. I don't love her any less, by the way. It's just frustrating.
Because of this, I have made it a mission to never miss her birthday hoping that she'll follow my lead and start remembering. Her birthday is today, Sept. 27th... and I forgot to send a card! Ahhhhh! I did know it was coming up and made it a point to go on Monday to get her a card but I got busy (I know, not an excuse) and it slipped my mind.
So... I will obviously call her today and go out and buy a belated birthday card. I did however make her a video and post it on YouTube? That's something not most sons do, right?
Yes, that's a picture of my mom with a deer she raised as a fawn (it's mom was killed by a car). She's got a kind soul.
Here's the video, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
