After reading earlier about SK's reaching out to their SP to say happy birthday, I'm curious to know is this something that anyone else receives?
I have not received one birthday present or card from the SK's on my birthday. DH has given me a card with their names included, but I've never really received anything personal from them other than them saying happy birthday when they are prompted by DH. I never made it a thing for me to be acknowledged though, and never gave it a second thought.
One day before school SD asked DH can they call into a shop and buy her teacher flowers for her birthday. DH agreed and SD made her a card to go with this small bunch of flowers. Then they all left and I was home alone. I felt a bit odd and realised I was hurt that they have never thought to do the same for me. Then I felt annoyed I was feeling hurt, and got on with it. My birthday rolled around this year and again I received nothing but a prompted 'happy birthday' from SK's. DH took me away for the weekend with our DD1 which was nice and what I wanted.
When the SK's are older I still won't expect anything more, but the fact they put effort into a teacher more than they have ever done for me, did sting a little bit I had to admit. I'm just curious if other SP's can relate or what they expect?
