"Here is a little story for moms who have little ones out there. Here is a little confidence boost for you to make you feel better about yourself," began Emily Vondy on Tiktok, before confessing to celebrating her son's birthday on the wrong day - for two consecutive years.

Vondy told her fans that she found out she was celebrating her son's birthday on the wrong day after receiving a call from her paediatrician, who wanted to confirm the date of birth so that she could bill the insurance company for their recent visit.

The mom of three tried to confirm that her middle son's birthday was on 26 February 2018, but the insurance company said the birthdate registered on their system was 25 February 2018.

Before calling the insurance company, Vondy decided to scroll down on her Facebook page, looking for the birth announcement she made years ago, to confirm if she was correct.

To her surprise, she found that the insurance company was right, and she had been celebrating her son's birthday on the wrong day for two years.

"Now, I have to call my paediatrician back and say, 'Hahaha, I had my kid's birthday wrong,'" she says, after revealing the embarrassing reality.

Clearly, from the comments, Vondy is not the only parent out there to forget their children's birthdays, as some parents and children shared what happened with them.

One mom, Nofankswady, confessed to sharing the wrong name for her daughter after a stranger mistook her for a baby boy.

"I got flustered one day when someone said I had a handsome baby boy and asked his name. I said, Ron. Her name is Harper. It's hard out here," said Nofankswady.

Ashleigh also wrote, "My dad has twins. Only twins. He forgot my birthday two years ago. Not my sister's. Haven't let him live that down."

Another mom who had a similar situation with Vondy shared, "I texted my sister-in-law to ask my child's date of birth when I was registering him at the paediatrician as a newborn."

TikTok user Ashley, said, "One year my mother sang Happy birthday to Allison...My name is Ashley. I'm an only child."
