Way to turn a gift into an obligation..


In laws came round last night and said they're going to buy us the crib, not moses baskets. I said that we really appreciated any help and she basically cut me off mid-thanks to tell us we had to pick there and then what crib we wanted from the mothercare website! She was saying we NEEDED to tell her the colour and style we wanted even though we've not even thought of that yet!

She was making out that it was such an effort for her to buy us this when nobody asked her to. Don't get me wrong I'm very grateful for any help but she has to remember that 13 weeks is very early days still.
