This is the birthday card I made for my DIL. It’s the story behind this card that is so embarrassing! Sometimes I have to put extra effort into laughing at myself.
My oldest son’s birthday was in September. He recently sent me a text with the following photo and asking what year he was born😖
Ok! So I sent my son a 45th birthday card on his 46th birthday! Why? I have absolutely no idea. I can come up with an entire list of excuses, but not the reason. Was it because I’m an awful mother? Maybe. Was it because I don’t remember when my children were born? No.
Unfortunately I wasn’t witty enough to claim the card had spent an entire year lost in the postal system, and that I was so pleased it finally showed up!
I was so aghast that I just fessed up to being an idiot and that I was truly sorry! Im sure that this is the very first time I have disappointed my son. Not bad for 45 – I mean 46 years! Ok, that’s a blatent lie!
As I said earlier, this card is for my DIL that will be celebrating a birthday this month. I have absolutely no idea how old my DIL is, but I know she is not turning 36. It will either come across as humorous, as I’m hoping, or it will just bomb. I’m thinking I could start a trend of just picking a number – any number – for birthday cards! What do you think?
As fellow crafters, I know you’d believe that I thought the 5 was prettier than the 6, but I don’t think it would fly with my son. Come to think of it, it might – pretty sure he already thinks I’m an idiot!
Sweetheart, if you should ever read this, I’m still very embarrassed and sorry! I also still cannot explain it.
Until next time,
