Lets you dont have a lot of money and ur sister has more than you to spend willy nilly. Your sister is also your 10 month old daughters god mother. Would you be offended if she always bought ur daughter stuff? Like just because she wants to and always buys a lot for her for holidays. Would you be offended because you couldnt or would you not mind because she loves her and just loves to spoil her.

I wouldn't mind. I have a sister who is very well off and she rarely buys anything for my girls. (No she's not obligated to do so.)
I would welcome it.

Not really .. well no i take that back .. yes .. because i would feel she is trying to buy my daughters love and affection .. and it would piss me off because i wouldnt be able to buy lo what she wanted ..

I am that aunt as well. I want the best for my niece. She means the world to me. And its my job to spoil her.. but her Mom is her mom and that bond is amazing.

Depends on the presentation. but at some level discretion would be appreciated. Like dont show up to family christmas with twenty gifts for her ya know. If your gonna do it, awesome, just be aware of how it may make her feel.

This.

Just because you can't afford it for dd doesn't mean she shouldn't have it.


Quoting clasater:

The only way I would be offended by that is if she constantly made remarks like "well I buy her everything" or "well since you don't buy her anything" or anything along those lines. But otherwise I would just be grateful to have somebody who loves my daughter and wants the best for her like I do.
