My daughter is 7 and things are always a competition between her and her two 'aunts" who are 6 & 9 (adopted). But its not so much a competition between the kids as it is that whenever I buy her something, their mom (my MIL) has to go out and buy them something equally or more nice. Then if I mention something I plan to buy she will sometimes ask me not to, because she doesn't want to have to run out and buy these things for her girls. Well, her kids have a DS Lite and for my daughters birthday we were going to get her one; my MIL told me to make sure it wasn't nicer than the ones her kids have. Me and my husband decided now, we are going to get her a DSI or DSI XL (which really are better and not that much more than the DS Lite). Do you think I should honor my MIL's request on what I do or do not buy for my own daughter? Or do you agree with us, that it is our child and now on principle alone we are going to buy the DSI or XL?
