Re: Happy Birthday!

Jesse, I've a friend who's family always forgets her birthday, too, but
that's because it's close to Cmas.  My suggestion for next year:

Every household has a calendar to keep things straight.  Start now by taking
a bright oversized star for each family member and writing name & Bdate on
it and glue it to the calendar.  Let it be big enough to cover several days
on the calendar - they can peak under the star's points for anything hidden.
If a Bday is at the beginning of a month, place an additional 'preview' star
at the end of the previous month.

You wouldn't be doing this just for yourself.  You'd be teaching your kids
(and husband) to be aware of what's going on around them.  Ask your kids to
imagine how they'd feel if their special day had been forgotten.
