    My sons also getting stacks of clothes from his aunt and uncle after a shopping trip with them today. Had a mini panic attack when I noticed his shirt is starting to look fitted, pulled out the tag and it was a size 4. Hes only just turned 2!

    DS is getting from his dad and me a 200 piece Duplo box.
    From Santa 2 jigsaws and stocking stuff (bubbles, pencils, crayons, chalk, stickers, balls etc).
    From Nanny he got an easel (whiteboard, chalkboard etc), snakes and ladders and mousetrap (which he's too young for but his dad will play with it I'm sure).
    He will get more stuff from his dad's family tomorrow afternoon.
    I feel a bit stingy after reading this thread lol.

I can only hope what we got they like.
    I'm feeling a bit the same but I know family will have stuff for them too. Still makes me a bit sad.

    It should not make anyone sad.
    My kids get loads..but there are reasons for that.
    They have NO grandparents here, no aunties, no cousins...no one.
    We are leaving to go away tomorrow as there is no one to have christmas with.

    My dad has no interest in me or my children.

    so its over compensation from a mum who doesnt like the fact that no family will miss us at christmas.
    I would give my left arm to be going to a family lunch tomorrow.!

    sob story, sure but things are not always as they seem.

    my kids are getting crap from the $2 shop that their dad bought & wrapped that i admit they will love, ie bubble blowing thingo, toy story watch, etc

    i bought them books & blocks

    my 13 yo a pair of shorts, books, a personal grooming starter kit thingo & a set on learning to draw

    None of my little kids have much interest in toys, or at least, i certainly dont think they'll care about getting new toys.

    This is the first time it will just be us, we have downloaded the buble christmas album & bought tons of food to cook... cant wait

    Never ever thought about that side of things.

    I do hope you have a lovely Chrissy with your family.

    I was feeling down about what we put under the tree for our kids until the grandparents & aunts & uncles out theirs under & OMG I am overwhelmed with how much is there.

    So you put things into perspective for me.

    Enjoy the time with your kiddies tomorrow.

    Our DD is only 5 months old so has no idea. We got her a few small things like books and a Lamaze toy and bath toys. To be honest i think we will try to always keep it simple and not overdo it as she gets older.

    From Santa a 8f enclosed trampoline and a stocking filled with all sorts of cheap things, books, dvds and Lollies/chocolate.

    From me, Barbies and a Barbie car, a small make up mirror with lights and make up, a dr dress up and a barbie laptop I got for $28 :-D I was happy with that bargain.

    From her auntie she's getting a play guitar and mic.
    And from her grandparents she's getting a beach towl, art stuff and something else I can't remember what now.

    She gets spoilt being my only child but she doesn't get things throughout the year only Christmas and birthdays.
