Convinced she was correct about her own son’s date of birth (I mean, why wouldn’t that be seared in every mom’s consciousness?), Vondy picked up the phone to give the insurance company a piece of her mind. But before she did, she decided to hit her Facebook feed and scroll back in time to her son’s birth announcement. It was there that she realized she’d been making a mistake for years.
“His birthday is indeed the 25th,” she admitted. “For two years, I’ve been celebrating his birthday on the 26th. Now I have to call my pediatrician back and say, ‘Haha, you know what? I had my kid’s birthday wrong.’”

Talk about embarrassing! I only have three kids myself, which is not a huge number, and I know all their birthdays like I know my own. I do have to say my youngest’s birthday a bit slowly though. Whenever I’m saying it out loud or writing it down, I always want to confuse the date of birth with the year. Mom brain is real and—real weird sometimes!
All that to say, hey, no mommy’s perfect! As long as our kids are loved and taken care of…and too young to remember their mom messing up their birth date, they’ll be fine! Right?? Right?? LOL!
