Ah, birthday parties. Growing up, there were few things that made us happier. After all: lots of cake, piñata candy, and, of course, a goodie bag to go home with for once that sugar high wore off. What more could we have possibly asked for? But as far as one Minnesota mom is concerned, it appears she had lots of sweet-talking to do as well.
Emily Vondrachek, a proud mom of four, recently took to TikTok to highlight her family's very own festivities. "Here's a little story to allow all the moms of little ones out there to maybe feel a little better about yourselves," she began. As she hilariously revealed, she's been celebrating her son's birthday on the wrong date... for two years now. Yes, really. And while her little man Henry might not be laughing about it, we've got a feeling you're about to feel very amused. Check out what she had to say for herself in the viral clip below...

"I just got off the phone with our pediatrician. She's trying to bill our last visit," Vondrachek explained of how the mishap first came to light. "Per my words, my son's birthday is the 26th. I'm his mother. I know his birthday." Well, it appears she may have jumped the gun there. After a few back-and-forths with her pediatrician's receptionist, who insisted the toddler's birthday is actually on the 25th, she made a startling realization: Her son's doctor was indeed correct. "I just got done [checking Facebook] and his birthday is indeed the 25th... For two years I've been celebrating his birthday on the 26th." But perhaps the "worst part?" as Emily put it? "It's my middle child!" she joked. Ouch.
Nonetheless, Emily - and TikTok - couldn't help but laugh at the innocent mixup. "I called the receptionist back, and we were both laughing so hard," Vondrachek confessed. Oh, and don't you worry: Henry will be getting quite the celebration next time February
26th 25th comes rolling around. "Henry wants an Iron Man-Hulk party. He's specifically requested a red Hulk, not a green Hulk. I have no idea how I'm going to make that happen - but for my middle child, I will do anything." We love to hear it. Until then, stay tuned for more lighthearted laughs!
