You can write a SQL query that calculates this value and use this query to populate a default value for the parameter.

You probably need a date table for this, which for example stores all the dates between 2000 and 2050.
An example on how to generate such a table can be found here:

I managed to build the SQL, it was through a SP
Only now I have a problem, I can not update the date
I will explain
I have a parameter with years. default is 2012
and the parameter of dates fetches the year.


Then when I change the year, the dates of the parameter does not update!
How do I solve this problem?

Did you make the parameters cascading?

You can put a default on a parameter. You just need to make the dataset that calculates motherday dependend on the first parameter.
This thread goes deeper into the problem of cascading parameters not refreshing:
