She has a point. You can't just do a thing you were going to do anyway and pass that off as a birthday present.
Cheap, yes. Worthless, I wouldn’t know... The idea is nice, but who the fuck says something like that? “Mom, happy birthday! The only “present” we have for you has to wait about 7 months, because we’re too broke to even get you a card.” (Mom): “Don’t you realize that that baby is going to cost you much more than a card?! And let’s not forget what happens if you two divorce before s/he turns 18!”
It’s funny people are assuming this actually was her birthday present, rather than just a cute way to tell her about the pregnancy.
BECAUSE; YOU MORON, HE SAYS, “Today I told my my mom we GOT HER A BIRTHDAY PRESENT, BUT SHE WON’T BE GETTING IT UNTIL APRIL.” So OBVIOUSLY, that WAS the only present. God, I hate stupid people!
OP - Not a very smart move trying to tie in Mom’s birthday with your intended baby announcement. Learn from this, do not mix events and announcements. If it’s an important event or announcement it deserves its own space - not to be used as a tie in or replacement of something else. Having said that, it’s also somewhat immature and petty on Mom’s part to react so badly before you had the opportunity to explain. But you should have known better than to make your announcement this way.
