    Haven't really thought about it but I think they will still go. They are only there for a max of 6 hours.

    It was never an option for us, we had to go to school every day unless really sick.

    DH got his birthday off (and many other days for odd reasons) and still expects to get his birthday off at work, he always files an AL request for it, even if we don't have plans?

    BlissedOut yes thats a concern. I guess I will teach her that work is different and you can't take days of for things like birthdays. I never did at work

    My DS doesn't go to school on his birthdays. We go do something fun... like visit a theme park.

    I never went to school on my birthdays either. Although i usually just stayed at home alone and did nothing but it sure did beat going to school.

    My kids will go on their birthdays. It will still be very special days for them.

    Besides, once they're in school I'll probably be working during school hours anyway.

    Yes we always went to school on our bdays (mines ocassionally alls on a public holiday - like this year-so didnt then lol!), we had no choice. My sister was upset that hers fell during school holidays.

    DS will go to school on his bdays too, it doesnt take away from the specialness of the day.

    I actually used to love going to school on my bday! Generally the teachers do something special for the bday kids and it adds to the excitement I thought, I would be sad if I seen every other kid in my class get the bday treatment but then wasnt there for mine.

    I think it seems to be a 'tradition' that passes down through the generations (whether you go or dont go) We had to go as kids and so I will be sending my own son when he goes to school.. its not a make or break in life though so whatever people choose to do is all good I think Right now my DS is 3.5yrs (as you know Jensha LOL) and he wouldnt have a clue when his birthday is.. we just tell him his birthday is the day of the party.
