a letter to my mom...but the situation got worse.... Dearest Mom, I’m sorry if you felt that we didn’t care for your birthday. The truth is, brother, bf, and I had been planning to surprise you with a simple but special, hassle-free birthday celebration with family and close friends. We had been planning and saving for more than a month now. I have already saved for the lunch, your birthday cake, for hair treatments, manicure, pedicure, balloons, poster, designed framed picture, and your gifts. I have canvassed several restaurants and cake makers already. Then you changed your mind. Dad told me you wanted to celebrate at home with no invited guests. So I didn’t push through with the reservations at the restaurant. Then it seems you wanted to invite a lot of people. We don’t know what to do anymore and we really didn’t have a lot of money to spare. All we wanted was to give you a special and meaningful celebration where you didn’t have to work, cook, and worry about anything. We wanted to you to be happy for your birthday because we love you. We also wanted to give you a special treat after all that you’re doing for us. So if a surprise birthday party is not possible, we will instead just give you some money so that you can do with it whatever you please. You can buy your new jogging pants or buy ingredients—it’s up to you. Do with it whatever will make you happy. No more surprises instead. Your birthday cake will still come. I could not take it back because I had met with the people at the bakeshop 3 times for your cake because I designed it myself. Sorry, I could not afford a fondant, so I just asked them to make it nice. Mom, sorry, if we still can’t afford a grand party… Bro still doesn’t have work. We wanted to give you more but couldn’t. Anyway, sorry, this is only what we can afford. Love, Daughter

Hello spoiled311, I think you are indeed a good daughter. If my mother did whatever your mother did to you, I will definitely not agree with her. I will slow talk with her as I can't get angry at her. I think you have done what you should have done as a daughter. It is not your fault that the surprised party didn't turn out as you expect it to be. I feel sorry for you but whatever it is, a mother is still a mother. We are just their daughter *sighs*
