Parenting after a Loss

Who went overboard with the Xmas presents?

:::raises hand high:::

I waaaaaaay over did it with presents. I couldn't help myself. And DS bday is 4 days after Xmas so there is that too.

I'm totally done now though so that's the good news.

Anyone else shamefully go overboard buying presents for their LO?

  • Lol yes.

    And she won't even have any idea!

    But I got lazy wrapping so she's getting like 6 sleepers in one box and three outfits in another.  And I'm certain that she will be far more entertained by the wrapping paper than anything we got her.

  • We didn't, but DS isn't even 3 months yet. We did buy him a play mat and some soft rattles. My Grandmommy sent us a gift card to Wal-Mart for him, so we went and bought him a mobile, but that got put up last night. We also didn't wrap anything.

  • I am crazy with gift giving and I knew it would be worse when I had a baby's so DH and I found this idea and are going to try to stick with it each year....

    Something they want
    Something they need
    Something to wear
    Something to read

    Then we each picked out a gift to give her from Santa.

  • I'm going shopping as soon as she wakes up. I think I'll be able to rein myself in with her this year since she's only 2 months. but I always go over board with the bigger kids and since this is the last year they won't have share too much of the Christmas budget with her... I may be in trouble when DH gets home from work...

  • I did the opposite. I figure I might as well take advantage of her being clueless and not expecting anything while I can. I had to get her a bunch of things because we are traveling to ME (we live in SoCal so we needed a LOT of stuff for the trip) and I am just wrapping that up. She just got a ton of toys for her b-day and I know the grandparents will get her more than enough.
