    I think forgetting is one thing, but then trying to place blame on others instead of admitting "Oops so sorry I forgot" is more the issue. Going by another thread from this OP, her mother is trying to claim Op is ashamed of her son because her mother is telling every tom **** and harry OP's personal situation about her son. Now she's trying to tell the OP she told her the wrong date for her own son's birthday. This isn't about a simple 'human error' mistake, i am getting the feeling the OP's mother is playing some nasty head games with her. OP I hope you are able to try and disconnect a little from your mother. I think she needs help.

    My family isn't that big on birthdays or events. If you forget or can't make it or have something else on its no big deal... Dh's family are the opposite. They can't understand how we can be so blasé about birthdays etc but it's just how our family is.

    DH can't remember DSD's birthday!
    He remember's DSS' because it's a public holiday, mine because it's 5 days after his, and his brother's because he had to miss some event for it one year... Never, ever remembers anyone else's!
    He know's the months, and at the start asks me to write it down, and he puts it in his phone... so he never 'forgets', he just can't recall them when asked.

    My Dad never remembers mine. In fact, when i was 14 he yelled at me for shaving my legs because 11 was too young.

    Hahah

    Dad knows mine but always forgets my age.. so ya there was a lot of that for me too.

    To be fair to DH, he forgets our address and his phone number too... he's just not a memory person lol

    I'd be more upset that she was trying to make out like you didn't know your own child's birthday. I am a really, really forgetful person. I would forget my head if it wasn't attached, so I can understand forgetting. But that doesn't really sound like she forgot.

    Can't say I've ever heard of anyone not remembering their own address!
