You know it's bad when...

A phone call to the Eldest to wish her happy birthday goes something like this:

Me: Happy Birthday!
Her: Hmmm thanks, but it was yesterday.
Me: No, it's today. (Frantically looking at a calendar, because I don't want to be voted Worst. Mommy. Evah.)
Her: I know my birthday, you even wished me a good one on facebook.
Me: I did?
Her: Yes!
Me: Oh, I really wanted to make sure....

There is no way to recover from that. I wouldn't make a very good Temporal Witch (or Time Lord).

Nope, you are not Worst Mommy Evah! My mom frequently forgot my birthday altogether. But God help you if you forgot hers!

Definitely not the Worst Mommy Evah. my parents can never remember my birthday either. At least you wished her a happy birthday on facebook.

Nah not Worst Mommy Evah! You did wish her happy b-day on FB so you're covered. I still stumble on my youngest kiddos birthday and have to check the calendar. My granny tried to make me a year younger when she had a bracelet made with all her grandkids birthdays on charms. OK I guess the year younger thing could be useful....lol.

I called my dad ON his birthday once, and forgot to wish him happy birthday for three days after that. #worstkidever! You're still ahead of the curve!
