Birthday's and let downs

Picture is at Jacob's party on Saturday. He has a great time. Huge turnout, 12 kids 5 and under! LOL yes we are a little crazy! We had it at the bowling alley. Jacob's wanted to bowl for a very long time and he said "It was the best party ever!" It was a lot of fun, when we got home we put Jackson down for a nap and were sorting through gifts, and putting things together when exhaustion hit me! I took a 2 hr nap.

Yesterday was Jacob's birthday. I took cupcakes up to his class and they all sang to him and he has a fun time being center of attention! We came home and he got to open up a couple of gifts and I put aside a few things for Chad to give him when he got home, since he was out at the range all day and didn't get home til really late.

I was really disappointed though, not a single person called Jacob yesterday other than Chad to wish him a Happy Birthday. Yes my parents and brother were at the party, but they never called to wish him a Happy birthday ON his birthday. My best friend didn't call,no one.

It sucks, he's 4 yrs old and no one could think "oh maybe I should call him". I know he doesn't quite understand, but I do and it shows me that my family sucks.

 

Ok, I'm done venting......

 

I have a beautiful 4 yr old son, that I'm so lucky to have and GOD couldn't have blessed me more with him.

God Bless and thanks for my ranting! :)

Oh I'm sorry to hear that no one called. I completely understand how you feel. No one calls Lo either..besides my mom. People think that because we celebrate her birthday on another day doesn't mean they don't have to call on her actual birthday. ((HUGS))

Sorry to hear that. People can be so wrapped up in their own little worlds that they forget about the little ones and how special their birthdays are to them. I am sorry I have been away dealing with my father having a stroke but I would like to say Happy birthday to Jacob! Hugs,Katie

Well Happy late birthday to Jacob! I am sorry no one called him!  Sounds like you had a great time otherwise though!  You impress me so much with your strength Christy, I just want you to know that.
