So for my own situation: My MIL wants to knit a baby blanket for when LO is born. I am 100% behind this but only if she will do so for subsequent children also. My huband thinks I'm crazy that I think it's unfair to have Jaya receive a bunch of hand make or engraved things from relatives at the shower when the liklihood of others receiving the same treatment is low.
My mom also mentioned when I said that I am painting a tapestry based off her name meaning that I shouldn't feel obligated to do so for all of my future kids. If I can get around to it later on then go ahead.. and girls care more about that stuff than boys. I should mention that we hope to have a big family by today's standards. 6 kids, or at least 4.
This brought up a big conversation about whether or not things need to be even. For example, I remember when I was a kid my 2nd oldest brother always received presents on everyone else's birthday because he would get jealous. I know this is a common practice between parents especially when their kids are young.
What would you do?
