January 21st my brother Daniel turns 12.
January 23rd my parents turn 31 years married.
January 23rd also K.dot turns 34. This is not really a concern because I don't give a fuck, but slightly a concern because Gabriel might someday. So I'm making note. And yes, 34. That's old enough to be a grownup.
January 25th my cousin Caleb turns 6.
January 26th Gabriel turns 3.
January 26th also Caleb's dad (my aunt's #1 dude) turns something, but I don't care. I note it for scheduling purposes only.
That's just the immediate family stuff. I also have some very dear friends who were birthed and borned in Enero. And a variety of shitty obligations, dentist appointments, doctors, etc. And of course the overtime I work this time of year. And....Gabriel's birthday.
It's on a Monday you see.
I have to work on that Monday, because I have to take most of that Wednesday (the 28th) off for other important and mandatory and less-than-exciting things.
It's not like he's born in some month of birthday wasteland, so's I can schedule a party wherever it suits me. There's too much OTHER going on all around for me to fit anything in.
AND. I don't know what to do. Normally I'd say that Gabriel's not old enough to care too much, but with Caleb's party happening the day before, he might have some expectations that I can't hope to fulfill.
