I do not keep track of holidays. I have a lowered expectations. I do not get offended when my darling husband forgets Valentines. But sometimes, when he remembers, it's fun. I'm not big on gifts, receiving it, that is. I love giving gifts, but it requires shopping, and that stresses me out so much.
My poor children have gotten used to birthday shopping trip. That's how mommy gifts them. The upside is, they always get what they want for their birthday. Sometimes, once to three times I year, I'd give them gifts, but it's never in sync with their birthdays. I guess that is why I don't mind people forgetting special days because I get stressed thinking about having to shop for gifts.
