I'm still shocked at the amount that is spent on my boyfriend for his birthday or Christmas. He's an only child and the only grandchild on his mom's side of the family, so his grandmother has no one else to spoil.
I just can't believe it because I'm one of three kids and although we weren't poor, my parents certainly didn't spend $600+ on each of us for Christmas.

sheesh.

At that age, one toy and they are happy. I found mine got overwhelmed with too much and didn't want to open anymore stuff....so we just do a few things and call it good.

I think that's a disaster waiting to happen.

Totally ridiculous.

My 2 year old will get some clothes from me. His grandparents will getr him tons of toys, but I will just return them.

When I was that age, my parents and grandparents bought so much stuff it apparently took 3 hours to open it all (didn't help that I opened and played with everything as I went). 18 years later, it's a nice memory for them, but I don't remember a single thing and would've been just as happy with a couple presents I'm sure.
