My dad's birthday is today and my number 3 son's was yesterday. I got daddy's mixed up and had him thinking his birthday was yesterday, because for some reason I thought the same thing. I called him up; sang happy birthday to him and throughout the day I called and wished him a happy birthday. My brother and I had given him his present early. Anyhow I woke up this morning and realized that today is the 18th of July and not yesterday; therefore, I must call and inform daddy that I got it mixed up and he will have to put up with me celebrating his birthday again today. What makes it so bad, number 3 son's birthday was yesterday and I was celebrating his also. I called him and sang him the birthday song, etc., not realizing I was celebrating two birthdays on the same day. Number 3 son was born on July 17th and daddy, July 18th.

After sharing this with a couple of my friends, read what they had to say:

"It must be something about retirement. I thought all day yesterday that it was Wednesday until last evening when I asked Cindi a question about Thursday, She corrected me on the day and then I realized that I was supposed to be at a meeting. Needless to say, I missed the meeting......."

"It’s OK. I went a whole year thinking I was a year older than I actually was. My daddy’s birthday was yesterday also." (And this one is not retired yet).

Well at least you were celebrating both and didn't forget one. That would have not been funny.

LOL! I don't think it's just because of retirement, Momma.

I have moment like that too, and I'm only going to be 33 in a few weeks!! LOL!

I also started up my blog again, so if you can, come by and see me! I'd love for you to visit!

Ha! This is funny but even though you sang on the wrong days at least you remembered it was one of those days.
