Ask Amy: New dater wants timely, textured texts
If you don’t hear back, you should consider this to be “message received.”
Dear Amy: My sister’s son (now 22 years old) was born on Christmas Eve.
My sister always made sure his birthday did not get lost in the Christmas holidays and always celebrated it a week or so beforehand.
We always sent cards and gifts on an earlier date in December, so our nephew would feel special.
Years later, I had two children who were both born in May. Their birthdays are 10 days apart.
Every year my sister sends one single birthday card for both of my children.
I think it is very strange to send two children one card year after year.
This is especially odd to me given how much of a deal she made to keep her son’s birthday and Christmas separate events.
She also has not reciprocated with gift giving. Financially they have no worries.
Am I making too much of this, or do you agree this is strange?
