When do you celebrate your kids birthday when it falls on a week day?
Just wondering what to do for DS who will turn 3 soon... We're both working and chances are I'll have to do long hours that day. So home around 6.30pm if Im lucky.
What would you do?

Birthday - when do you celebrate?

Normally we have presents in mum and daddy bed than cake for breakfast and they get to pick dinner. Parties are always on the weekend closet to their birthday.
This tradition started because dh worked shift work when our first was born. We loved it and have carried it on ever since.

Birthday - when do you celebrate?
Parties are always on the weekend but we always do a family dinner on the actual birthday at a restaurant of DS choosing , ( my parents and sister and SIL and kids usually) now he's at school we will still do that but just go a lot earlier! I never work on his birthday and make sure DH finishes early

In terms of the day, I'd have special breakfast and presents in morning, cake sent to daycare and then favourite dinner that night. I have taken annual leave for her birthday in the past and just happened to be on maternity leave for DD's last 2 birthdays so would pick her up early.
Party, normally nearest weekend, but last year was a joint party with DS whose birthday is 2 weeks later so its the weekebd after that

We also do parties the following weekend, on the day they blow out their candle on their breakfast cup cake, and we have their favourite dinner in the evening.

Party on the closest weekend. Do not make a big fuss of the real day atm (DS is 3) as he gets a little confused lol.

Birthday party usually on the nearest weekend. When DS1 was younger we would only celebrate on the party day because he wouldn't know any different. These days he gets his present morning of his actual birthday, cupcakes/cake to take to daycare/kindy if it's a weekday. But celebrations are reserved for party day as that's enough I think.
