And I forgot yesterday was my mother's birthday. I fail.
Just keep swimming. :)
Wow, there is nothing I can say to even attempt to put a positive spin on that. And for me, that's really saying something.
It's okay. She still loves you. But she likes your brother more, if only for that "Badonkadonuts" joke.
Don't wait any longer -- call her now.

And/or pick out a really good 'belated' card to send...
Moms will forgive that kind of thing. She'll be more bothered by the stuff that's bothering you so much that it made you forget her birthday.
(I forgot my mom's birthday this year as well, if it makes you feel any better. It was her 60th.)
She'll be more bothered by the stuff that's bothering you so much that it made you forget her birthday.
This would be true of my mother - MY mother, who likes to hold everyone accountable for the entire month of May with any wrongdoing being a strike against mother's day and anything she wants us to do becomes "just do it for me, for MOTHERS DAY."
which is to say, the ultimate guilt-tripper about dates... but she'd still be more worried about me. And/or you, as the case may be.

You feel worse about than she does, I'm sure. I'd think most adults would be past the stage where birthdays were a big deal. Apologize, send a card with poem or something about a son that forgets things, and make it up next year.
