Okay, so my DDs birthday is on Friday, her "golden birthday",and I know she is expexting some huge deal made out of it....but we have so little $ right now. (DH unemployed, just had babe #4 a few weeks ago, I'm on my leave and only collecting about a third of my regular pay, you get the picture).
Heres my idea, I want toget her a pair of sapphire earrings and maybe a matching necklace. Kohls usually has deep discounts on jewelry, plus I have a charge card for Kohls. (kohls is a department store for those of you not from the midwest, a little more "upscale" than Target, but not in the Daytons league either).
Dh doesn't think thats a good idea, he wants to get her MORE rather than SUBSTANCE. E.g. loading up on jeans and other clothes (which she does need, she has had a Huge growth spurt this past summer. Last weekend we went through her clothes and pretty much handed down all but a pair a red plaid pants and 4 shirts to her sister.)
What do you experienced Mammas have to say about this? Will DD be more likely pleased with the joowls, or clothes? I am unsure what to do.
