while I do agree with this, I believe said child(ten) will remember the feeling of being left out when say, a grandparent, buys more for the other grandchild and seems to forget the others or spends significantly less, very obviously less. That makes em feel like crap and way less important. Add in zero time spent with said child from grandparent and there ya go.
So true....I couldn't have said this any better. It's also about letting go as your children grow and letting them make there own lives and choices even though you may not agree. You have to stand back and be supportive despite how you feel. Being a mother is one of the greatest joys in life but at the same time one of the most difficult. I wouldn't want it any other way!! ♥
