  • oh ok, so the people who gave your children IOUs brought present for the other children in the family but yours. I understand that this is a little upsetting, especially if you kids see left and right everyone getting several gifts and they have nothing.

  • Live and learn. We had this kind of result from hubby's massive family two years in a row - then I stopped buying for all of them but his mom (and dad before he passed away). You are not wrong to be upset, but next year just don't get for everyone.

  • how old are you kids? I not sure if I understand correctly, they got I O U S for Christmas? As far as I understand you wouldnt gov ethat to a kid. So I am guessing you mad at that? Seems wired to me as well.

  • yeah I dont buy present for the extended family. Maybe they didnt expect it either and gave you the IOU instead....
