Nope. Unless they are defacto auntie/uncle because they are one of my besties and have a close, day-to-day relationship with me and my kids.

Whenever a close friend announces the birth of their child, I mark the date in google calendar and add a recurring annual reminder. It’s not that hard to do, if you care enough about a friend to want to wish them/their kids a happy day.

No way. I have a lot of friends that DO (which is sweet) but I don’t expect them to... and I usually don’t remember theirs.

Hard no. :-)

Nope. But I appreciate when they do. And the comments I get on the socials if I post about it.

Also, I try to make my besties part of his celebration whenever possible (we all live far away from each other), so they kinda defacto remember because we have something planned.

I was just pondering this - last year at this time we had a Paperless Post maelstrom of kids birthday parties. Now we are all over the place, geographically and mentally. So, no I don’t expect any parent to remember my kid’s birthday. But I do intend to send a note to his extended family to send him a video message or something. Ah, 2020, the gift that keeps on giving...

Nope - that is too much for anyone.

No. However, in my group of close friends, one of them always remembers all the kids’ birthdays except my daughter’s. 🤷🏼‍♀️

No

OP- Why do you ask?

No but it’s nice if they do! 😆

No.
