I'm horrible at remembering birthdays (as you may know from experience). I've tried to use a calendar with color-coded ink; a special card organizer from Hallmark with little post-its to remind me; I've even written all the birthday cards for each month out, addressed and stamped them with "mail me October 13" notes on each one.
But still, I forget.
I only have one brother. I grew up with him my whole life. He's always had the same birthday. And he's quite the brother. I forgot to call him on his birthday.
Sorry Nate. I really do love you, and your card and present really are on their way.
Thanks goes out to my mom, who emailed these sweet little reminders of how fun it is to be a big sister!
