H's family is obsessed with bdays like makes the biggest deal ever about them. After DS was born and I was still recovering- hardly able to move- we "missed" one of the nieces bdays and H's brother is still freakin mad about it.
Anyways is this normal? Am I un-normal that bdays are not that big of a deal? In my family we got you a card and may be went to dinner. In his family it's like a $50 minimum card + gift +party and cake and must be a phone call on the actual day.
Idk it just seems ridiculous to me. My aunts/uncles and extended family never exchanged cards or gifts. I don't think they didn't love me it just was always an immediate family thing. What does the board think?
