Not-so-newly wed anymore. Still basically clueless.
Mmmm, did he forget? I'm not sure I've ever managed to wish my MIL happy birthday on the day itself. Then again, my own mother has taken to calling me to remind me of *her* (and especially dad's) birthday. I'm absolutely terrible with them! Every year, the only resolution I still make is to remember more birthdays. I always get my FIL's. His is Jan 1st. Go figure.
That has so happened to me... except it was two days later. Argh. Maybe he didn't remember either? I wonder if they're big birthday people? My sister's in-laws don't do much about birthdays so her husband never bothered to remind her because his parents didn't care.
Yea, he forgot too. I found out because we got home from dinner and I immediately went pee. When I came out of the bathroom I heard D on the phone saying, "Happy Birthday mother" and I went AAAAAAAAAAA! Luckily she works the night shift and was awake that late.
Put it in your diary for next year now!
Oh! That's not fair, and you'll probably get in trouble for it, too. Yuck. Definitely needs to go into your calendar and set to repeat annually.
