lol, I can't even do that, let alone him. I feel like such an idiot sometimes when asked for my kid's birthdays or even their ages. It takes me a minute to figure out which birthday/age belongs to which kid.

I'm pretty good about it. DH can not give ages or b-days. Ages are usually pretty close.

Reminds me I have to call the insurance company and check out why they had Rebecca's birth year wrong when I picked up her antibiotics last time.

Wow..funny...

I really thought Dh was a special case and have been giving him such a hard time about it...the worst moment of him not knowing was when he was picking up some huge containers we had shipped from the UK.

The guy at customs or whatever its called was doing the 'mock interigation' / questions they ask for arrival suspects ...and the guy was like ..ok childrens names and b-days...loool...he litterally called me..because he couldnt get them right.!!

From what you all have posted , guess I cant be too critical..

side note: for me, I know them all, but also have to think through it sometimes and I have booked doc appts and name and b-day didnt match...lool...

I rarely get mixed up on their birthdays or how old they are.

Dh gets the nov 2 and 6 birthdays mixed up sometimes and frequently will say they're a year younger than they actually are.

Nope, not chance. He could never do it.


I do fine, as long as I have to list everyone in order. Ask me to toss out some bdays randomly and I'll need a minute or two.

We're about even.

The only two I mix up are #3 and #4's, because their birthdays are three days apart. Sometimes I get them jumbled, but then I remember that #3 comes before #4 in not only age but in birthday date. I think he stuffs up that one too.

Yeah, we both can but sometimes it takes a minute. Like I was on the phone trying to make a doctor's appt for my sick toddler. They asked me her birthdate and I went blank...I said "Wait, she really is my baby. Just give me a second."

He can't, he might remember a month but that's it.

I can remember the dates, but not the years of the younger ones. I have to do the math. The older ones are easier I was married in 90 Ted was born in 91, two in 92 and one in 93. Easy peasy. Lol

I can get the birthdates. Hubby can get most of them, but years are usually the roughest for him.

There is a joke that there are a few extra family members in our house, Salusudammitwhoeverdidthis and aznowaitditaSUNNY. They are to blame for most of the ill doing in this house.

I'm able to list my children's, & dh's full birthdates, and parent's/a couple other close friends/family's month/day only. Most are written on a calendar though, or I'd never know.

DH is not too bad at the kids' either, although he has to ask me for all 3 occasionally.

We both remember all birthdates, ages. He even knows birthweights and lengths. We both get mixed up on times of birth because most were born around the same time of the hour.

No. And he asked how to spell Clares name yesterday. Our oldest child. Who is 12.For what it's worth their birth dates all have the same numbers.
12/1
11/25
1/24
1/5
5/2
See? All 1,2, and 5 with the exception of that one 4. He should have been born the next day. Haha.

He has trouble remembering which kid goes to which day because the oldest and second youngest are only a week apart (but 8 years).

I'm pretty good at remembering them all, but I also have to go through the roledex, so sometimes it takes me a second!
