Worst Daughter Ever Award goes to...

Moi. It's not that I forgot her birthday, it's just that I didn't happen to remember it on the actual day. The woman who said, "Honey, it's OK. Drop the Geography class" when I called her from my college dorm room, stressed with too many credits, did not receive a call from me on May 15th to wish her a happy birthday. This is the same woman who was never late picking me up from school, who put presents in my lunch on Valentine's Day, who sent me sappy cards in college with her handwritten message that scathed, "Who in their right mind would ever send a card like this ON PURPOSE??" and then sent me flowers after a bad day. This is a woman who deserved to be remembered on the day she was born from one that she gave birth to, but I forgot. Not even 24 hours later forgot, SEVEN DAYS LATER forgot!! Mom, I would like to say I'm sorry by telling the internet how cool you are. I love you! Happy Birthday.

I am SO glad I am not the only one. Yes, I also forgot my mother's birthday this year. It was the day before we moved and I completely forgot. I am usually the one that reminds a sibling or two on such special occasions so you would have thought my sister (who knew I did not call because my mom was at her house) would have some simpathy but NO, she called me the day AFTER to tell me I forgot. Thanks for that one hermana.

You more than made up for it. Tell Cory thanks for calling me for my birthday even though he was 3 days late.

One year my whole family forgot my dad's birthday, including my mom. At the end of the day, he said "I just want you to know that today was my birthday." Oh the shame, the humiliation--needless to say, we never forgot again.

As long as no nerd stole your mom's panties, and her grandparents didn't say "She's gotten her boobies!" it still ain't as bad as 16 Candles...
