My parents are quite wealthy and love to spoil DD which is fine at the moment as she is their first grandchild and still under a year old. My parents often go overseas for holidays and come home with suitcases full of gifts including Chanel, Gucci and other expensive designer brand clothes and accessories for her. I have just had a talk with them and said that although I am very grateful for the gifts to DD I would appreciate if they cut back and no longer bought home anything that has a designer label on it as she starts to get older.
Am I being unreasonable?
If they still want to buy her things then that is fine. I understand Grandparents like to spoil their grandchildren but I really dont think its appropriate for her to be wearing such expensive clothes at such a young age. If we were rich celebrities living in Paris then maybe, but we arent and we dont.
I also dont want my daughter growing up thinking money is everything. I also know how bitchy girls can be, and I dont want my daughter thinking she is better then others because she wears designer clothes.
What do others think? Should I just get over it and just let them spoil her like that or should I make a stand and say NO i dont want her walking to our local shops wearing a chanel dress and expensive shoes? My mum just recently commented on getting her a Gucci childs bag :-/ WHAT IS THE POINT????? Shes not even 1 lol
I am happy with Kmart and Target and if in the future when she is alot older may be she can have a couple of special items of clothing
