    Not anymore. She has always insisted I get things wrong. I reminded her several times before the date (she asked) and then argued that it was the day after her other grandchild's birthday. The other grandchild was given birthday wishes on her birthday but my son gets forgotten.

    It wasn't that she forgot. I can accept that. What sticks in my craw is that she said I told her the wrong date.

    Like I don't know my own child's birthday.
    And I am made to feel like I have failed somehow when, really, the ball should be firmly in the other court!

    Ugh. Just over it I think.
    Yep, I would be annoyed to. Sounds like something my mil would do. She will lie til she's blue in the face that really, it was someone else's fault.

    I'm sorry for your DS, hope he had a good birthday.

    @ LoveLivesHere.... Lol, I am the same!! What's even worse is that DS's birthday is in 2000, so how hard can that be to remember he will turn the age of the year it is, or to remember the year!

    I have decided that we are forgiven for our apparent permanent baby brain

    Just read another thread from you about your mother.... i think she's trying to hurt you emotionally. Sounds like a classic mother with NPD (narcissistic personalty disorder)

    I'd say if she's a great mother/grand mother outside of that maybe give her a break?

    It's ok to forget date, people tend to do that and it can happen to the best of us.

    I had to remember my mum one year about my nephew's birthday. She had the wrong date and she was so upset about it, poor thing.
    My dad forgot about my sons birthday but I know he loves him just the same...

    To me it's not that big of a deal.

    I don't think it's a big deal either that she forgot.

    Hope your little guy had a happy birthday regardless 😊

    I can see why you would be hurt and upset about it considering he's the only grandchild. I do wonder if it completely skipped your mums mind and when she has remembered she was actually embarrassed and made up another date? I only say this because my dad does it all the time but I'm not bothered by it anymore.

    my siblings and I gave our mum 7 grandchildren in the space of four years. it was impossible for her to remember everyone's birthday. she could hardly remember what order they came in, hahaha. but she had the dates all written in a birthday book, so she would usually remember. in your situation I would be upset, but for my mum, no not at all. marie.

    Wouldn't bother me at all. Kinda a bit meh no biggie. My parents have lots going on, they're not as young as they were and I forget stuff all the time so I understand that this kind of thing is not malicious. If they hadn't called or whatever then I would call them and let them know. I wouldn't wait until they hadn't called and then be funny about it - sometimes people need the courtesy of being reminded. People's lives are busy.

    I have a really easy birthdate to remember yet after thirty odd years my dad still never remembers what it is! It doesn't bother me in the slightest though.
