Woman Sparks Criticism After Sharing Photo Of Christmas Gifts For Toddler!
A mum sparked criticism online after sharing a photo of the huge collection of Christmas gifts she had bought for her two year old daughter.
The Gold Coast mum shared the photos on a Facebook page called Christmas Mums Australia and says she was just wanting to share her excitement over the gifts she’d been buying and saving for her toddler.
Amongst the huge pile of gifts were Barbie dolls, Play Doh, Wiggles toys, puzzles and much more. The mum admitted that she still had some gifts left on lay-by to pick up, about $1500 worth. Including a bike, trampoline and Barbie Dream house.
“My Christmas stash for little miss two,” she captioned the two images, adding, “love you my little princess”.
Many on the Facebook page saw the stash as excessive and wasted no time in telling her so. “That’s ridiculous for a two-year-old,” one person wrote.
“Put that money into a bank account for a uni fund or a car or a house. Something that is actually going to help her,” another added.
“You’re setting her up for disappointment. Trust me,” a third person wrote.
“Wow that is a lot. I thought I gave my kids a lot, which I do, but this year I’ve decided not to,” said another. “I end up having too much in my house and it’s getting to me so I’ve decided not to buy so much and get them things they are going to actually play with more and use.”
Some commenters came to the mum’s defence saying: “It’s no-one’s business how much anyone buys for their kids.”
“There are some rude people; good on you for being so organised. I wish I was. You have done a great job and forget the haters, they are just jealous,” one woman wrote.
“Oh look out you’re about to cop it from the ‘too many presents police,’” another added.
“If you don’t like what this mum has bought then scroll on. I don’t buy a lot of toys but I don’t judge this mum and I sure as hell don’t need to tell her my two cents either like all of you are,” another mum wrote.
While one commenter saw the humour in the whole situation: “I think each to their own … good on you if this is what you want to do for your little ones! But this frightens me … imagine trying to put all these new toys away!”
What do you think? Personally, I wish I was this organised!
