Ok, so I have my soon to be 3 year old birthdays for my twins coming up, then soon after we have Christmas. The problem we have been facing is our family is giving them 1 present... and it's normally something that cannot be shared. For example: 1 blanket, 1 pillow, 1 telephone toy, 5 random pairs of pjs- why not 4 or 6, 1 stuffed animal etc.
I appreciate the fact that they are given a gift, but they are being treated like 1 person, and they are now starting to notice it. I'm all for sharing, and they are really good about it, but I feel really sorry when they are treated like 1 person, because they are in fact 2 separate individuals who happen to be born at the same time.
With the holidays coming up, how do we approach family members without coming off as ungrateful? If money was an issue, we have suggested things that can be combined for the 2 of them, that are also cheaper. Ironically, the family members who are doing this, are actually spending MORE money on the individual present. Does this make sense?
Anyways, I'm really looking for some help/advice on how to approach the situation. I will probably post on my BMB Jan'16 as well because I'm not too sure of the traffic on the 2 boards.
Thanks in advance!
