We always know. but anyways my dad this year got me a separate card only from his htis year and wrote something really sweet in there...so not sure if he's getting all sentimental because his little girl is finally getting married!! ha
You know it's funny too because I'm already thinking of plans for his birthday because it's the day before our wedding in Mexico. Oh well..I guess that's just how he grew up. I think his family at least calls him but they don't make a big deal about birthdays in his family. But when you know how much it means to me you think you'd know better to at least tell me Happy Birthday and get a card.
my dad often calls the week before my birthday. mine is the 15th of nov. but my sister is the 8th of oct. - exactly one month and one week earlier. so my dad screws up on a regular basis, forgetting whose is the 8th and whose is the 15th! i just tell him he's old and that's why he forgets
