DD2 just turned 1! Her godparents are one of my best friends and one of DH's best friends. At this point they have both started the Precious Moments birthday train for her and I am not sure how to handle it. On the plus side, she had two very caring godparents! It's a good problem to have :) I just don't want to offend anyone.
At Christmas, her godmother asked me if anyone had started it (I said no) and she was excited to start it for her and have a go-to birthday gift every year for the next 16 years. So she got the starter kit (a clown, a picture frame train, and the "baby" train) for Christmas. She gave the "1" train for her birthday.
DD's godfather didn't know this and got the clown, the picture frame train, and the "1" train for DD's birthday. When godmother saw this (we happened to open his gift first at the party), she quickly and quietly told me not to open the train part of her gift in front of him because she didn't want him to feel bad.
So, now we have two of them. Godmother just said as she left the party that she'll let us figure something out - maybe they can alternate years or something. Godfather has no idea that there has been any duplication. I asked DH what he thought we should do and he said that godfather has already bought the whole set in anticipation for future years. But I know how excited godmother was about the idea. How do I handle this tactfully without hurting anyone's feelings???
