However, sometimes the first birthday of the child may shake your optimism slightly and make some troubles for the future. Of course, he/she will get terrific gifts, such as, for example, expensive or cheap kids beds, created in a definite style, or electric cars for kids, but some disadvantages will still remain.
THE DISADVANTAGES OF NEW YEAR/CHRISTMAS BIRTHDAY
Here is the list of the most popular worries, which occur in adults who celebrate the birthday in this day.
"My friends, relatives and mates forget to congratulate me and to wish happy birthday"
