Not selfish. It's the holidays! You deserve at least one or two things for yourself!
It's like your birthday or holidays...when u turn 16 ...you got car stuff...then 18.. you got house things.... now you have a new baby so baby things. I do think you deserve some gifts for yourself though!
I got maternity clothes and baby stuff for my birthday -.-"
I still believe that its better to give than to receive, but thats my humble opinion
Omg marijana19 the only present i received was a "maternity" shirt, it was actually a regular 2x shirt which made me feel huge!!!! I use M/L in maternity. That shirt only got to used once because it was not stretchy like martenity shirts so it didn't cover my bump anymore as it grew. And also a baby blanket like really -_-
People can be strapped for cash when holidays come around. You had a child. People usually make sure the kids have something before the adults. So it is what it is. He will get stuff before you get stuff.
My way of thinking is once you have kids they get the presents. I haven't had a present in almost 4 years. That is ok because I know my babies are taken care of. Order of priority in my hous/family is the kids first and foremost then my husband then the animals then me.
I've not had a personal Christmas gift since I moved out at 18, was always home stuff now will be baby stuff, although I prefer it that way I never want for anything anyway, I just buy what I want when I want it from my own money.
I was really hoping for one silver necklace that i fell in love with and i even told everyone i want it for my birthday and guess what i get... a maternity shirt i couldnt fit in since i was 18 weeks, an oversized pants and extra huge maternity underwear i think i fit in twice, and 4 jars of pickles ...i mean what the heck...
Oh my grandma told me the same thing..I cried and threw a fit!! Then when my papaw came to my room and told me hed give me some chocolate i was all for it!! lol.. Its just your hormones making you emotional.. At least it was for me..
Our family never gave presents to anyone over 18. And within the relationship, we have more to worry about (house, baby, bills) than to spend anything on gifts for one another. Always felt like presents were for kids rather than adults. Let baby have his presents and be happy for him.
The only thing im asking for is baby gifts. No offense but I do find you being selfish
Why are you worried about getting any presents? I always just worry about giving. Its the holidays . Dont be concerned in how much you receive.
