Hello to all Gransnetters. I have been a member of the site for a while but this is my first forum post. I apologise in advance if this post is long.
I have two sons, who between them have given me four gorgeous grandchildren. My youngest son is in a stable marriage while my oldest son has had bad luck with the women in his life and is no longer with the mothers of either of his two children. He is now in what I feel to be the best relationship of his life. His partner of nearly two years is wonderful. She is family orientated (we are a close family). She brings out the best in him, she obviously cares deeply for him and she gets on well with everyone in the family.
She has three children of her own ranging in age from 12 to 2. We get on very well with the kids and recently the youngest two have started to call us "Gran" and "Papa". We are very pleased about this and are hopeful of a long and happy future.
This is their second Christmas together, but the first they have spent as a couple within our extended family. We, like many other families set a budget for each of our grandchildren and buy them gifts in line with that. My dilemma...... Should we spend the same amount on the three new additions to our family?
