I have 4 kids ages 9,7,5 & 10 months. Well this year me & the hubby decided that we were going to go all out for the kids this year for Christmas. We have been saving all year & also took advantage of DH's flexible spending account through work & also a Christmas bonus through work. We have spent almost $2500 for Christmas this year. (Also buying for neice & nephews) Well, my mother asked me how much we had spent & after I told her she flipped out on me! Telling me how I have completely lost my mind & that its just horrible parenting on my part!
I don't really understand what the problem is, I mean its our hard earned money, our bills are paid, & we recieve help from no one! Most of the items that we have purchased are expensive items. My 2 oldest each Samsung galexy tablets & 3ds. My 5 year old a peg pergo 4wheeler. Plus clothes, shoes & other toys.
What do you think? Would you go all out for Christmas for your kids if you could financially afford to? Or am I just insane?
