To make a long story short i dont have many mom friends. And the few that i do have, i like to keep, but they all have more then one kid . Some have four some have five, I on the other hand just have one and dont want to have another one.
Some back story on me: I just took a six month medical leave because of my daughter relasping.
My DD is 7, and is fighting cancer. And I just lost a suddenly, he was only 33. So the lost of my brother and watching my mom go through the emotions is hard. This made me realize how short life is and how things are taken for granted.
So every friday, I like to take her to movies, dinner, nails or a trip to target to pick out something cheap.All depending on how much I have to spend
My friend is a single mother of four and can't afford to do the same for her kids or chooses not to. We always see things different.
We where having a discussion on how much we spend on our kids, she spent a total of $600 on all her kids. I told her that I spent just as much on my daughter, probably even more, I started since September. But my most of my gifts are big ticket items: a Wii U, a laptop, and some games and cases to go along with it. All of these are stuff that I put a lot of thought into. Mostly because she is sick some days she cant go out so she play on her Wii or she simple wants to spend hours talking to her cousins on skype.
This lead her to say, that my kid is spoil. I was shock.. Now my kid isn't a "bratt" she doesn't scream or yell or anything like that she is probably the politest girl that you come across.
I told her that my kid is not spoil she is a single child and I only have one kid to buy for, Not several. I left it like that and haven't talk to her for over a week.
Am I wrong?
