My mother's friend is always outfitted to the 9s; she wears expensive, quality clothing and spends a lot on handbags/accessories. She buys herself expensive gadgets, etc. But she is kind of cheap with her kids. No, really cheap. She always buys them super cheap or second hand clothing. When we are out with our kids, I always have to wind up buying stuff for her kids. It happens like this, my son asks for McD's. She's like, no, I don't want to waste money and spoil them. But I'm not about to let my son eat McD's in front of those kids, so I buy for them as well. In the summer we went to the zoo and she wouldn't buy them ONE thing from the gift shop. Again I felt bad and paid for toys. She doesn't seem to have a problem with it, as long as I'm paying. I know it's none of my business what she spends on her kids, but I think it's terrible that she is generous with herself and skimps on them. Anyone know someone like this?!
