Miles’s 6th birthday is right around the corner, and he keeps reminding me of how I totally failed him during his birthday party two years ago.
Yes, the kid is still upset about his 4th birthday.
We talked about his birthday party for weeks, and when the big day finally came, he stood at the window for most of his party saying, “Where are all of my friends?”
Apparently when he said birthday party, he thought that meant friends.
I just assumed he’d be thrilled with grandparents.
To make matters worse, we didn’t invite friends to his 5th birthday party either.
But that’s okay, because to make myself feel better, I’ve compiled 25 birthday fails that are totally worse than no friends at a birthday party. Well, some of them are anyway.
I thought this would be a great place to start. I mean – can you even imagine?
Or how about a little cake mistake?
This looks like something my mom would do (sorry mom!)
But this would work too. If you’re into that sort of thing…
I always love celebrating 1th birthdays with balloons!
How about a little autocorrect birthday humor?
I’m pretty sure that I have a picture just like this somewhere – featuring Big Hairy Dog.
And I do agree that the first year does tend to revolve around poop…
Pretty sure that Even Steven has made a cake like this for me before. Or at least he wanted to.
This makes me snort a little.
And I just couldn’t resist this one. It’s the sorority girl in me…
How about this for a birthday gift?
I had to read this one about four times to really get it. Which might say something about me… (And yeah – I know it has nothing to do with birthday, but it makes me laugh, so it’s here.)
And while we’re off the birthday topic, let’s go ahead and pretend that this is a birthday cake too. Because THIS makes me very, very happy.
This looks like a text my mom would send me – you know – when she’s on crack.
Or how about this cake?
Which I think we can all agree is better than this one:
And I’m sorry if you don’t find this one funny – but I love!! exclamation points, so it’s one of my favorites!!
I wouldn’t be surprised if I actually saw someone trying to do this.
You can never have too many candles!
Or too much pony poop.
But maybe we should have a little birthday crack. What do you think?
And while we’re texting – this one is a true #birthdayfail!
I’m teaming up with Hallmark today to show some awesome birthday fails.
Whether you neglect to invite your child’s friends to his birthday party (like me), you misspell something on a cake, have a giant dog taking a dump in your birthday greeting – or autocorrect makes your birthday message very incorrect, there’s only one way to describe it: FAIL.
Luckily, with a Hallmark card, you can turn a #birthdayfail into a #birthdaywin.
For their #birthdayfail campaign, Hallmark made this hilarious video – featuring a face you might recognize. And – no – it’s not me. But it is hilarious!
What has been your biggest #birthdayfail?
