Okay, pardon my language....but I'm pissed that just because my due date is 12-25-2011 my family and friends think it's ok to rip off my child on her presents and birthday. WTH!? Just because every other person has a birthday during a different month they get their own birthday presents and get their own on christmas. Also, that they will only celebrate Christmas and not their birthday? Why can't we have a cake and a party for my child? Im beyond livid if you can't tell. No, instead we just have Christmas dinner and then open our presents. They get happy birthday and merry christmas on their gifts and that's it! No sorry. I guess I will be the only decent member in my family to throw my child a birthday party, buy birthday gifts (separate from their xmas), and then go out and buy them xmas gifts as well. Does any other mother out there feel the same way I do? Or going through the same thing as me? What did you tell them and what are you doing to fix their ignorance??
