I certainly hope once our parents pass away that my kids will remember all the fun things they did with their grandparents, the food they cooked and ate together not the material things they received for Christmas and their birthdays.
I don't mean this as a personal criticism, I grew up without grandparents and I wish I was able to meet them and spend valuable time with them, I certainly don't wish they were around so I could have more presents.

My children received so many presents from their grandparents and auntys and uncles that we could barely fit them in our car to take home.
I spent Boxing Day sorting through them and putting some away to bring out throughout the year.
They were given some things twice or things they already have so I will send those gifts to the grandparents house so they can play with them when visiting.
We now have a whole storage box full of arts and craft supplies that I can bring out slowly over the year.
I am so grateful that we have such loving and generous family members but it did take me a long time to get all the presents sorted and put away.
The only presents I don't really agree with are chocolates and lollies for the little ones, I think they are unnecessary but a treat once in a while is not so bad.
