You sure it was your birthday?

Today, it was my birthday. My partner of 9 years, and father of my two children, bought me a set of headphones for him to use on the treadmill. Didn’t wrap them, didn’t say happy birthday to me, didn’t tell my kids it was my birthday and worked on the yard all day. FML

That's what children do. They buy gifts for someone that they really want for themselves. Because they're young and only think about themselves mostly at that age.

So the fact your grown-ass husband is doing it says a lot about him.

Happy birthday to us. Feb 3rd was my bday as well. My partner of 11 years never remembers. Even though I always remember Fathers Day, his bday, Christmas etc. I buy for him from me and the kids. He has never bought me 1 gift. I finally donated my Christmas stocking because in the 11 years, it has never occurred to him to put mine up with his and the kids. And yes, I fill his stocking after he goes to sleep and a gift under the tree. I stopped joining them for Christmas morning. I'm done being the photographer for all their moments. I'm in 1 photo by myself from 10 years ago. I'm always behind the camera.

Happy Birthday !
Oh sh*t. I am sorry for you, what he did was a douche move. Did he openly say "Oh yeah the headphones are actually for me."? Is it the first this has happened? Because this could be a big red flag.
I suppose you could do the same thing during his birthday: buy something that only you would use, ignore the fact this is his birthday etc.
