It’s tough to admit, but I’m not the most perfect daughter in the world. I do realize that my mom is probably never going to let me live this down but I forgot. I just plain forgot. I think it’s because I’m getting older. Yeah…I’m going to blame it on my age. My memory is my enemy. But really who gets two birthdays in one year and expects me to remember both of them?
You see, I have never been good at remembering birthdays. I’m always off days, weeks, sometimes months. Take for example my mom’s birthday. It was a few years back and I was so excited to call her and wish her a happy birthday because for once I didn’t forget. It was June 5th and I wished her a happy birthday. Come to find out her birthday is January 5th. I am either six months early or six months late. So it's an ongoing joke to celebrate her half birthday.
So then I was patiently waiting for January 6th. I called and wished her a happy birthday---well you guessed it, it was the day before. I just couldn’t get it right. So now it’s 2010 and I did my good daughterly deed and called her on her correct birthday this year but I forgot about her half birthday :( My brother even called and reminded me.
How could I have done such a thing?? Well I hope this makes it up to her. I have a beautiful package in the mail that should be delivered by tomorrow. Gotta love snail mail.
Happy Belated Half Birthday Mom!! I hope you can forgive me.
