I could just be getting my back up, but my first child is now 10 months old. We survived Christmas without to much hassle, however I did get a little cranky that my mother-in-law bought my son his first ever trike. She has now informed me that she has laybyed a swingset and jungle gym for his birthday, and has already started looking for his first bicycle. I did not say anything but these are all things I had planned on my son receiving from his parents (or santa), and I’m not sure if I’m just overreacting because I do not agree with my mother-in-law on most things. Please tell me, are these gifts you would prefer to give your child or do you think its great that someone else is doing it?
