So around November 2009 ( so over a year ago ) , my brother's girlfriend gave my daughters a box full of Barbies ( and barbie clothes and such) most of them from the early 90s but they are now their favorites ( I think it is all the extra makup and the fake diamonds they wear lol ) ...she also gave them about 5 or 6 old disney movies ( mostly princess movies) and they watch them over and over a few times a week.
Of course when she gave them to my girls she didnt say anything about giving them back - she actually said that she wants them to have them because she loves them and has no room ( they were moving into a smaller place) .... At the same time she also gave several other things to my younger ( but older than my daughters) cousin.
Now she is pregnant ( doesnt know if it is a girl yet - she is only 7 weeks) ...and now she wants everything back so she can save them for her baby. At first I just told her that my girls would be really upset since they play with and watch them all the time, and that by the time her kid is old enough to play with them, my girls would have outgrown them...
but she wont give it a rest, technically they are my daughters, she gave them to them, she didnt say they can borrow them, she said they can have them. My brother even told her to let it go ( they dont even know if they have a girl yet and they already said if it is a boy they do not want him around girly things) .... but she wont, she constantly whines about it and I am to the point to where I am basically ignoring her ( not answering her calls or facebook messages) she actually tries to start arguments over it and has even called me names.
I dont think I should have to give them back and how would I explain that to my daughters? And it isnt like I am telling her ou can never hav them, I told her what would work best for both of us - my girls can keep them until her MAYBE girl is old enough to play with them and i think that is fair !!
