Yesterday my sister took my daughter out. She wanted to get her a few things, she falls into the since I don't see her often, when I do I will buy her. It's kinda harsh but the truth unvarnished too.
She bought her one of the dolls, Belle, that Little Bit has been wanting, even wrote and asked Santa for it. And Santa got it for her well over a month ago. And has been building the anticipation for it. And now its ruined. Well that part of it is anyways.
DH is furious, but I'm just really disappointed. I know my sister wasn't trying to be mean but the thoughtlessness seems a bit much, not that that is anything even remotely new or to be honest unexpected.
Am I being silly or does it seem like a really stupid/inconsiderate thing to buy a kid a present right before Christmas without asking her parents? I can't afford to buy a ton of presents so I really put a lot of thought into them, what does she really like, want, will remember,or will be useful.
I feel even more bummed about Little Bit being away now. I at least had her face when she opened her dolls to look forward to, now only one of them.
FYI seems red is the dominate choice for the binding, which would really make the stars the focus. My only thought on black is it would give the whole thing a frame...I still can't decide, not unusual for moi lol
