    My kids will go to school when the time comes. I always went to work and school. I don't see the big deal. You can celebrate, but you still have responsibilities.

    completely with what you said - I dont think its an issue either way, if its a tradition you want and have had then its a nice thing to do

    My oldest DS's birthday falls within the christmas holidays so he never has to worry about that but I'd probably send the other two (DD and my youngest DS) once they're at school and have a mini party at school for them or something.

    Lol, my birthday falls in the Xmas holidays and I always felt really ripped off I didn't get to have the class sing happy birthday.

    Now I'm a teacher I still feel ripped off that I don't get a cake in the staff room!!

    Now my dd's bday falls at Easter lol.

    Ds2 will not be going to daycare on hoc birthday next week I'd way prefer to spend the day with him. But ds1 will be going to school once they reach primary school I think it's important for them to attend school everyday unless sick of course but I will be taking in a cake for him and will take him to the movies or bowling something special that afternoon.

    Absolutely! I can remember taking in cakes and showing off various birthday pressies. In about yr 4- my Mum organised a surprise lunch order- a milk, a sausage roll and a milky way. It was the best surprise EVER! As I got older- friends would organise balloons and all sorts of stuff. Half the fun is the fuss made by your friends. And than the fuss continues right into the night with my choice of dinner and desert and more pressies (1 special pressie in the morn, the rest after desert).

    That's my thought, too.

    My birthday "usually" feel on a school holiday, but the days it didn't ( all 2 of them if that haha) Mum made me an awesome cake to take to share with my class
    I wouldn't let DD stay home on her birthday, instead I'd like to do as my Mummy did and bake her a birthday cake extravaganzas. Lol

    There may be times when we wag though
    I don't think I'd protest if she really wanted to stay home.

    I remember going to school for my birthday.
    My mum used to surprise me, and come to class with cupcakes and my prezzie. I got to share my birthday with her and my class mates.
