dh forgot my birthday again and dd has really cheered me up today

so a girly shopping day

or a family friendly day

Two schools of thought- give DH the chance to redeem himself and have a lovely family day, or prolong the agony and go out with DD. I'd have the family day out tbh.

Happy birthday though x

Ask DH what he has planned to make it up to you. If nothing, then lovely girly day

But why would you exclude DS? - did he forget your birthday too? hmm

id have the family day out & make dh buy you something really nice grin & expensive
(teach him to remember next year)

Family friendly day.

What did your ds do wrong that he is being excluded too?

AlicesAdventuresInWonderland Fri 07-Aug-09 19:52:55

no Im not being mean to ds..

there is just a very large age gap and dd and I can sit .....ds will do everything else but sit for a long time

I have had a lovely day with both of them today

but sometimes I just want to spend time with my dd

may be Im a tad unreasonable

sunday will be dh and ds

and dd will then be with her boyfriend all day

No, in that case YANBU!

AlicesAdventuresInWonderland Fri 07-Aug-09 21:02:57

thanks mummydragon

have had a lot happening recently and time with dd is rare two days in a row is amazing

probaly will barely speak to her to for a month after tomorrow

big age gaps bring a strange set of problems

AlicesAdventuresInWonderland Fri 07-Aug-09 21:05:32

sorry thanks to everyone else

and lol

dh did come in with a pressie

am keeping it for the morning ds loves unwrapping pressies

dh will never make time for my birthday work always come first

How old are your dd and ds?

Were you expecting your dh to have a day off work for your birthday?

I don't think I'm following this very well at all <puzzled>

AlicesAdventuresInWonderland Fri 07-Aug-09 21:21:49

no not the day off

but he had the longist shift and is now on call and working on some paper at the moment

last year he forgot and had to drive miles to take a test on horse ..he is a vet

he just has the view that everything can be put put back a day or two

birthdays anniversarys christmas even

AlicesAdventuresInWonderland Fri 07-Aug-09 21:22:37

juuule Fri 07-Aug-09 21:32:09

Ive woken up feeling really guilty about going out with dd ....silly she is my daughter and dh and ds will have fun today

last week I was helping my Mum


why can life not be easier

I would go for the day out with dd and enjoy it and then enjoy your day with dh & ds tommorow.

Happy Birthday!

Dont feel guilty - DD1 is 8 and DD2 is 19 months, and I crave time with DD1!
Next week I have booked a day off work, am leaving DD2 in CM, and me and DD1 are having a day

Adults birthdays can be put back a day or two.

AlicesAdventuresInWonderland Sat 08-Aug-09 18:36:16

maybe I can squeeze in one more birthday

dd and I have a wonderful day and walked and talked and walked and talked

was lovely

am shattered
she said we had clocked up ten km

thank to you for all the replies and

waves back to fourandnotout..

it can be hard to divide yourself but it can work

well sometimes
