  • Maybe you could just ask him what he wants to do for your birthday without implying that he forgot. I probably wouldn't test him.

    I think given all the upheaval a new baby brings, yes, setting him up for failure is kind of mean.

    Also, no matter what I want to believe, I know my feelings would be hurt if it were me, so I'd rather save myself from that as well, and remind him.
  • That is a lot passive aggressive for my taste. I'd mention it rather than set the poor guy up to upset you.

    Exactly. If you are doing it on purpose so you can get mad at him about it that sucks.  If you won't be pissed about it and don't care if he remembers or not then don't remind him.

  • Given that MY birthday is tomorrow and my mom had to remind ME, I think you should cut your husband a break this year. We are all in new baby crazy. Don't set him up to fail.

  • Yea. I would remind him. We all forgot my dad's bday, even my mom, because of baby. They were both staying at my house and things were so crazy with baby that we all forgot. :/

    I agree.  No need to create drama where there doesn't need to be any.

  • I would remind him especially if you'll be upset that he forgot. My mom's bday was june 5th and I spoke to her on the phone and completely didn't realize it was her bday. I realized the next day and called to wish her a happy bday. She completely understood with me taking care of our lo.

  • To be honest, I can't even remember the day of the week... Let alone the date!

    I would cut him some slack on this one!

  • I remind DH every year, lol.  He's not a sentimental kinda guy and I know I'll be upset if he forgets so I usually just tell him flat out, sometimes even with suggestions of what I might like to do or gifts I would like.  Idk about your husband but mine needs the extra help with things like this, it's not mean it's just practical.  
  • DH and I always mention our birthdays coming up a couple weeks in advance. I wouldn't set your DH up.. A lot has been going on!
