NFT: Best and worst birthdays...

kelsto811 : 1/1/2019 9:48 am
For those who have/had young kids or for when you were a kid...pretty sure New Years Day takes the cake for worst & #127874;

My son was born on New Years day, which is a nightmare for birthday parties. Can't have it before due to Christmas, Day before/day of clearly can't happen, and after....lets be honest, it's freezing, you're going back to work...what other parents want to be tied down to that after the time, money, and energy spent on Christmas and New Years.

On the flip side, New Years Day birthdays in your 20's sounds great. Good friends shouldn't be letting you spend a dime on what is an expensive and busy drinking day. Getting to go out for some drinks with my kid when he turns 21 should be a blast (if he lets dad come).

Mine is right before Haloween, tons of candy + gifts was always a plus. Holidays? Historical dates? Same day birthdays? good? Bad? Horror stories? What you got?

And yes I know...let the offseason begin.
I just had a baby girl last night.

My wife's due date was January 3rd. We both didn't want a new year's eve birthday but it is what it is. We are just happy that she is healthy.

as for birthdays, just do it the first weekend after New Yearís Day, simple solution. We have one this weekend for our friends daughter and it works out well.

Congrats and another tax deduction for 2018! Glad that all are healthy. Probably saved you a hangover too.

We haven't named her yet buf every time some asks what her name is I say her middle name is Deduction and her first name is Tax.

Thanks everybody.

Yes, congratulations and best

Do they still do freebies for the New Year Baby? When my mother was pregnant with me, they would give a year of diapers/food/etc. for the first boy/girl of the New Year. My mother was trying to hold out. She was on her way to a party, but I was having none of that. I was born 10:35PM on New Year's Eve.

It was a fun birthday when I was in my 20's. Had some epic celebrations in Vegas during that decade. But now that I'm older, it is just another day. Hate going out to dinner as there is a limited menu, long waits, and overall crappy service.
My dadís birthday  
Pete in MD : 1/1/2019 10:30 am : link
is Christmas Day. He has a really good take on the whole thing. He always knows there will be a party and his loved ones will be around.
No clue if they did anything.

My wife just wanted the baby out. Haha.

Wow that is cool. I remember the hospital saying our son was 3rd in the "area", but I didn't care enough to have them expand on that. I had no idea that was something that was done.
Mine is first week in June

Have some great birthday memories that coincided with all my different graduations, the start of summer school letting out (when younger) and always being at some great jersey shore bars (when older). A lot of my childhood birthday memories remind me of Knicks playoff basketball which has since long been forgotten.
My birthday  
AngelCordero : 1/1/2019 12:31 pm : link
is today.

I have never had to go to work on my birthday, ever.

I have spent every birthday of my life watching football. The day I was born, my other held me while she watched the Cotton Bowl.

Can you beat that? No. You Cannot.
Congrats Robbie!

My second is a NYE baby...it really sucked for her growing up. We used to celebrate her "half" birthday in June. Ever since college, however, she's really enjoyed it lol. She turned 26 last night and they had a huge party. So it does get better.

My fatherís birthday was on St. Patrickís Day ...  
Crispino : 1/1/2019 2:23 pm : link
and my motherís on Valentineís Day. The St. Patrickís Day one was good, because it just intensified the party in my Irish family. But Valenineís Day was tough because itís more of a couples day it interfered with family making plans to spend it with their significant others.

At least no one ever forgot their birthdays!😀
Congrats!!

My nephew was born on Christmas Day this year.. gotta say thatís probably the worst day to have a bday on
My wife

Tried hard to avoid our second son arriving on Valentineís Day with the epidural slowing down contractions. Held off long enough to make it to feb 15 just after midnight

I think Christmas Day is definitely the worst. My 6 year old sonís birthday is on Christmas and he definitely gets screwed when it comes to gifts, and it is a pain in the ass trying to plan a birthday party for him. We normally try to do it 2 weeks before Christmas, but a lot of people have Christmas parties and stuff to go to so itís not always easy to plan.

My daughter was just born about 10 days ago on the 21st and I canít imagjne thatís going to be much better...
I wasn't going to share this because it's just so sad...

But every time this thread bumps to the top I think of it again. A friend of mine's wife gave birth to their son last Father's Day but his 37-year old wife died during the delivery. The son came through it in good health, but the boy's birthday (and each Father's Day) will always be a reminder of the death of his wife. He also has a 4-year old daughter. Just so incredibly tragic and sad. And he's a comedy writer.
Great news robbie
