I told dh I wanted an NES system for V day. So he got it. He asked me if he gave it to me early would I still consider it a V day gift. I told him yes. Here is the thing though: HIM AND THE KIDS ARE ALWAYS ON MY SHIT! I can't get to play anything anytime except at 3am when I'm up with the baby. So should I tell him I want another gift for V day since everybody but me is enjoying the first gift?

No because he gave you what you asked for. I think you may want to remind them that it yours, As a mother we tend to forgot that we can have somethings just for us not the whole house. So make this your one thing that belongs to you and nobody else. IMO

You knew before he brought the system? That this is something the kids would enjoy too? So why did you ask for it? That's ungrateful asking him to buy something else. Valentine's is overrated anyway. Should be about spending quality time with the people you love. Not material things.

Disagree! They have their own systems. I'm not in the habit of not getting something simply because my kids like it. I was asked what did I WANT and that was it. The thought that they would leave their own systems for mine did not occur.

He got what you asked for so IMO to ask for something else only because the entire family will share it is selfish, we teach our children to share it also apply to adults

I am not one of those parents that tell my children no a lot but I do have a few items that is mine just like they have a few items that belongs to them and I don't make them sure. My daughter's is all of her DS's and my son's is his Xbox 360, mine is my laptop. I would never make them share those items and I never allow them to use my laptop because I have a lot of work on it. And yes they have tablets.
