Grandparents & Gifting!

Today's topic: GIFTS FROM GRANDPARENTS! 🤔🤭🙄🤗
Sometimes the gifts from grandparents are the forbidden ones, the things we don't want or take up too much space! I am a believer in open communication with your parents and in-laws. Try to start with a positive. What works for me and in my case... I say you did such an amazing job raising your son who is the love of my life, however the way I want to raise my kids is to limit XYZ, it may not be right, but this is what makes sense for our family.

By acknowledging that your parenting style may not be the correct one, it makes the grandparent not feel attacked or put down and limits their ability to come back at you. 
That being said, this tractor was from Grandpa and it is my son's favorite!! While it takes up a lot of room, my parents knew that I was into gardening with the kids and this was what they thought was in line with that
