My mother in law seems to think we have it all, she constantly comments on anything new we purchase, of the kids are wearing new clothes or if we make any improvements to our house. I’m not sure why though, we’re a family of 6, my husband and I work long hours, I don’t feel we are frivolous with money but we do like to have nice things, keep up with technology, and nice furniture. We certainly are not rolling rich, we don’t go away on holidays or waste money on movies and hardly ever go out to a restaurant. But if we purchase something new like a t.v. or couch we do opt to buy well so it lasts.
However my MIL is constantly making comments on how much we have, and how many toys the kids have. I don’t think they are spoilt, they share their toys and hand down clothes, do I keep biting my tongue or say something.
