It's become very obvious over the almost 3 years we split.
My dad (who was my primary parent) always brought me more gifts and more expensive gifts compared to my mum because he could afford to do so.
Now I’m an adult, I honestly cannot remember half the stuff either of them brought me. It didn’t make me love one more than the other
I can imagine it’s tough on you but so long as your child/children know you love them, that really is all that will ever matter
Please don’t be hard on yourself xx
I explain to my son my income is half as big as I work part time so I can do more school pick ups and be together more (in a non judgemental way to his father working full time)
My son (9) therefore doesn’t ask me for expensive things and does ask his father.
He loves both his parents and thinks it’s cool that dad can sometimes buy expensive things but equally seems to love how I make Christmas and birthdays special by decorating the house, baking etc
But honestly, children may love the expensive presents in the moment but as they grow they see things differently and they'll start to see that they're getting these things because it's a competition and not out of love. Xx
Buy her the world and more. I'm happy my daughter gets everything she wants from daddy
Honestly people worry too much kids aren't as stupid as we think they are. They like toys and gadgets but when she's upset or sick she still calls for me and that's the most important part
