What if you've had your birthday wrong all along? My grandmother thought hers was in June for 60 years until they found her birth certificate and it was actually July.
Because back in the day they didn't have all that information we have now. My great aunt, who's in her 90s, doesn't actually know what day her birthday is because because the dates aren't the same on some official documents, and she's the youngest of 7 so her parents didn't remember which day it was either.
My grandmother's birthday is registered a day after she was actually born because all of the nurses had gone home. That means they had to wait until the morning to register her. She only found out last year - when she turned 70 - when she found it in her dad's journal.
Eh, no need to worry, OP. She probably just got you confused with one of her other daughters from her secret families. It's difficult to keep all that stuff straight, especially when one child enters adulthood and leaves.
