Whose birthday is next in your home and how do you plan to celebrate/do you celebrate it

Have you ever pulled an all nighter

What's the best advice you've gotten about parenting and who did it come from

Um, no, it's not his "gotcha" day; that's his birthday.  I adopted him in August when he was 10 weeks old.

DD3s due date was June 19th but she was born on June 14th.   We have combined her birthday/Father's Day in the past but I think this is the first year of them being on the same weekend.

We never knew exactly when Red's birthday was. We adopted him in early August and was told he was about 10.5  months old so we made Labor Day his birthday </p>

I don't know all my cat's birthdays; just Cyduck's and Buster's.  Buster came from a purposely bred litter.  Cyduck's Mom was relinquished into rescue when she was pregnant with him and his littermates, which is how I know his birthday.  The others, Ricki, Solstice, Maisie and Trini are a best guess scenario.

I don't know mine either.   I don't even remember when we got them, except in very vague terms.

We have three animals in the house; two cats and a dog.  We know the dogs bday, but not the exact days of the cats.  The kids picked a date though around what the shelter thought their age was.

I only know because I had to have detailed records of the "Home Cats" when I was fostering :)

I only know MacIntosh's birthday because when I was scheduling him to be neutered and needed to know his age, I went back and found the email that Joel's former teacher (who gave him to us) had sent, telling me that the kittens had been born the day before.  For those dying to know, his birthday is 2/21/12.  Laughing

Fostering is why I know the dogs birthday as well.

Each one of my kids were born after their due dates.  By the time DS was born we were down to just two days late, Lol.
