Last year, dh bought my oldest dss an X-Box for his birthday. He's really wanted the Kinect sensor bar since then, and apparently bm told oldest dss and middle dss back in late October/early November that she would buy them the bar for Christmas this year as long as they were okay with the fact that it would mean they only got one other present from her (which they were fine with). They both put Kinect games on all of their Christmas lists because of it, and it sounded like that was still the plan as recently as a couple of weeks ago. We went ahead and chose Kinect games for them, and so did my il's.

I'm sure you can imagine how we all felt when my oldest dss opened up the first Kinect game, looked at it for a few seconds, then looked at us with tears in his eyes and said that she didn't get it for them after all.

I know it's just a video game, and we can either swap them for the boys or they can use some of their Christmas money to buy the Kinect sensor, which can sell for as low as $70.00 pre-owned. It's not the end of the world. It's just really obnoxious to watch her build them up and get them excited, and then not follow through, since it sounded like they didn't know they wouldn't be getting it anymore until Christmas morning.

*Excitedly expecting baby girl number two!*

Thank you to Babydoll213 for my fabulous siggie!

That's horrible. Why wouldn't she share that with you guys?! If she couldn't afford it, fine don't get it. But let the adults know that she didn't get it for them so you guys could get them something else. Now they have these games that they can't play with and are all upset. WTG BM! Real good f'n job there. Poor kids. I'm sorry hun. Maybe everyone can chip in some money and get them one.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

That sucks. I know it can be fixed relatively easily, but why put YOU guys in the position of upsetting them? Thats just rude.

Poor kiddos! I hope there is a way that they can get the kinnect sensor! We accidentally went through that with Sean with his PS3 by getting games for the PS3 Move. We found a good deal at Gamestop I think it was.

Thank you JMC1988 for my siggy!

My DD's BF told her for months he was getting her a Barbie bike for Christmas. When I asked about it, he said he wasn't. That's all she talked about for months was her dad getting her a bike.

That is horrible. It's not minor in my opinion to promise something and not follow through. Poor boys!
