I am amazed by this event! I was her StM from age 9 to 18 and loved her totally! She messaged me informing I was lacking on the 30th birthday front! I told her I love her and she is further ahead at 30 than I was! She is my eldest DDs older sister so has that place as well as the one she h

?

pressed send too soon?

MammaTJ Fri 31-Jan-14 21:26:05

Has in my heart! She knows I love her and am here for her!

I don't understand, have you not seen her since she was 18?

30th birthday?? What, is that a very special birthday to some people then? confused

Eh? You mean you forgot her 30th? Ouch.

MammaTJ Fri 31-Jan-14 21:30:25

I have seen her and her DP and her DC but her DM had passed away!

I don't know that you should be touched so much as mortified tbh?!

MammaTJ Fri 31-Jan-14 21:34:31

blue, that would never happen.

AnnabelleLee Fri 31-Jan-14 21:35:47

30? Isn't it time she grew up a bit?

Touched? Do you mean embarrassed?

birdsnotbees Fri 31-Jan-14 21:36:23

So you mean you thought about her birthday but didn't actually do anything about it... which to me would seem awfully like you forgot it.

I would be upset if someone who professed to love me so much neglected to mark a landmark birthday. I don't think it's a childish thing for her to be upset.

Unless there was a gift/card sent by OP and the message from the DSD is dissing the value/thought involved?

When was her birthday and what had you planned?

MammaTJ Fri 31-Jan-14 21:39:59

AnnabelleLee, no not at all, she is looking for love from the parents she had left!

PublicEnemyNumeroUno Fri 31-Jan-14 21:40:13

You are touched that she messaged you to say you neglected her birthday?

I don't get it confused

Are you touched that she thought of you and missed you, is that what you mean?

CinnabarRed Fri 31-Jan-14 21:40:33

I really don't understand...

birdsnotbees Fri 31-Jan-14 21:40:54

Ach, you're making no sense whatsoever. And using too many exclamation marks. I'm off.

SuperScrimper Fri 31-Jan-14 21:41:18

I have read this about 10 times and he still doesn't make sense!

Hassled Fri 31-Jan-14 21:41:18

I don't really understand - I get that you're touched that she cares that you forgot, but why did you forget?

AwfulMaureen Fri 31-Jan-14 21:41:19

Why are you touched?

PedlarsSpanner Fri 31-Jan-14 21:41:43

MammaTJ we are really having trouble understanding what the problem is confused

themessyapron Fri 31-Jan-14 21:41:45

Are you drunk? You're making no sense

I think Mamma means that her DSD has got in touch to say her 30th is missing MTJ there!

I think that's lovely. Being a SM is hard and it's nice she remembers you and your role 12 years on
