  1. I'm sorry he forgot your birthday! My guy is the same way sometimes. Must be in their genetic make up or something.

  4. My husband is great at birthdays, Valentines Day, Anniversary and Christmas, but totally falls down in other areas. Doesn't help in the house unless hounded, etc. We just can't have it all, I guess.

    Just stopping by from SITS to say hi; hope you'll do the same!

  5. ah, don't worry, your husband is not the only one. I guess men don't think special days are that important to us women! I constantly nag mine to buy me a present weeks before my birthday!

  6. I am sorry he forgot! I am sure that does hurt. Men are just wired differently. It is hard to accept.

  7. My husband and I have been married 26 years. I suggest you throw yourself a surprise birthday party next year! I did one year! I had a great time!

  8. You guys are so sweet. He truly is a great guy and I wound up having a terrific day! Still learning after 22 years together not to expect ANYTHING on my b-day! And that's actually OK in the big picture! I did pick up a lovely bracelet from him when I was out shopping! Getting tons of compliments on it. He has excellent taste! :-)

  9. I'm sorry! Honestly, I would be so hurt and probably a lot pissed off if my husband ever forgot an important date, like my birthday, or our anniversary. Luckily, Jim is on top of it.

    Now, I'm not one for playing games and/or being manipulative, but sometimes a girls gotta get her point across, you know? My suggestion? The next important date that comes up - act like you forgot!

    Stopping by from SITS (and thanks for visitng Maneuvering Motherhood!)

  11. Stopping by from SITS. I learned not to let them forget. I remind them pretty much constantly in the days leading up to it. Maybe even weeks! But a woman at work said her husband forgot. We'd gotten her a cake and I suggested she take the leftovers home to jar his memory but she said nope. She wanted him to forget. She said she'd wait until a couple of weeks afterward and then let him know...THEN he'd feel so bad he'd want to make it up to her.

    Why do we women do such things!

  12. I would be very upset if my husband forgot my birthday. I understand though why you wouldn't make a big deal after 22 years of marriage and with your husband being the "plunger of toilets" - that should get him a lot of forgiveness.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  13. Men! Reminds me how my husband can't fold the towels the way they've always been folded for the past 14 years we've been together.

  14. My ex husband used to forget my birthday all the time, but i could never wait for the end of the to see if he remebered. I would try every year but by noon i had to say something.

  15. Wow! Thanks everyone While I am sorry others' husbands have forgotten their birthdays, it's somewhat a relief to know I'm in such good company! Thank goodness for girlfriends! (And husbands, too, as I believe most of them are there when we really need them!)

  16. Just reading this and it's funny I am because I was talking to friends today about how my husband has forgotten my birthday at least 4 times. A few times when he remembered I wished he had not. Like the time he gave me a pair on "really nice" knee pads because I had complained about how sore my knees were weeks before after cleaning a very large tile floor for a friend on my knees. Oh, and the time he bought me a bottle of Patron and then drank it all with his friends before I had a chance to touch it. You are so not alone. I hope you had a great day and I'm grateful for the facebook reminder.
