When I had my first child, my sister bought me a cradle swing that retails for about $180. I have used it for both my children and have kept it in excellent condition. My youngest is nearing the recommended weight limit for the swing, so I'm considering selling it, as I do with all the items my children outgrow. I should get about $75 for it.
I'm a stay-at-home mom and my husband works two jobs. We live on a tight budget. I'd like to use the money I get for the swing for birthday and Christmas gifts for the kids.
My sister's husband's niece, is having a baby boy in two months. I'm not close to the neice and see her only every other year. I plan on giving her lots of the baby clothes, toys and equipment I have. I could have sold them, but chose to give them to Bree. I don't plan on giving her the swing.
My sister is now reminding me that she and her husband gave me the swing and they would like me to pass it along to the neice. Am I obligated to give what was a gift to me and my children? There were no stipulations when I received it. How do I handle this?
