Okay so DDs birthday is not for another 6 months but I wanted some advice.
DD gets pretty much whatever she wants and needs from us. She has to much of everything!!
So this year we were thinking of asking immediate family (who will buy for her regardless) if instead of gifts they would like to contribute to taking DD away to Melbourne to go to the zoo, museum and aquarium ect. My Mum thinks its a great idea and said she would much prefer to do that. But I still feel pretty stingy asking.
I just don't want anymore crap for her!! She has too much and I know they will buy "stuff" even if I ask them not too!!
I asked ILs to sponsor an animal in DDs name instead of a gift and they refused
So anyway what do you think? Rude or sensible?
