(If you’re here looking for the column “as a woman, I am very humbled”, it’s right here!).
Every weekend I like to throw up a question someone sends in and let you readers have a go at it.
This week, in honour of my daughter’s 15th birthday, I’d like to ask one of my own that might be kinda fun!
On Katie’s ninth birthday we were leading a missions trip of 27 people to Kenya. We had to get to the airport, load up 60 hockey bags, and organize all of those people. And so I forgot to say Happy Birthday. I didn’t actually forget her birthday; I just forgot to say it to her until well into the afternoon, when by that time the little girl was just beside herself with sadness because everyone forgot her birthday! We had the pilot announce it on the plane, but still.
So now, every birthday, I make a point of rushing in early in the morning on her birthday and saying, “I remembered!”
So here’s your question: what have you never lived down in your family? Let us know! I’m sure it will be good for some laughs this weekend.
