Birth request from SK
Sorry I’ve been MIA but I so enjoyed this forum with my last question. So my current question about a birthday present SS13 asked for.
He asks for very expensive things (fine I get it) which DH usually spreads among family and gets it done without hurting us so much. This newest request for this upcoming birthday? A powerwheels! Yes, a child’s powerwheels.
Mind you, DS4 and DD2 each have one. I got them at yard sales for 25 dollars each (truth). Now this 13 yr old wants one that he is too big for and is insisting on a brand new one. He is too big for even the little kid ones clearly. He exheeds the weight limit.
DH has bought him a new bike and rollerblades he asked for with all of the protective gear that he asked for. He never uses them, but now wants a little kids’ powerwheels, new?
Sorry but I’m at a loss. I wouldn’t buy them new for our own babies and found them at yard sales. I told DH to tell him these things are for little kids but DH said SK13 said he really wants to ride one with our kids. I told DH he’s being over indulgent and guilt parenting.
i just think this I ridiculous but I am doing my best to pick my battles. Am I wrong here?!
I dont have enough time to go to yard sales in the next week to find one btw, or else I would do it despite him complaining about a new one.
