Re: Birthday Celebration or NOT!

I like your plan. When she says, " MOM?? My birthday is today and you haven't said anything about it. Do you even care? "

Reply with, " Oh yes honey, happy birthday! " And let that be the end of it. I used to be the same way. *wink*

And if she goes off into her room and pouts, remind her about all of those poor children in other countries who have never celebrated their birthday. Let her realize that you brought her into this world, and you can take her right back out. Without you she would not have it so good, even with another parent by her side.

Good luck!
