Quoting **Alexius's Mommy**:" Thanks everyone for making the decision the blocking my dad's side of the family out of my life completley :)"
You're welcome, it will help in their 13 year old child no longer being emotionally and financially abused by her derranged sister.
I have a little brother who is almost 13 and adores his nephew...but has never bought anything for him.
Who says you can't use 18 month clothes when your daughter will fit in them? My son wears onesies in the house all the time even though it's March and it's freezing outside.
I have issues with my dad and his family too...but I never take it out on my brother. If he did that, even if the sizes were a little off...I would still accept them gratefully and make a big deal about how kind and thoughtful it was. Not whine about how they're not the right size.
Honestly, I think you're in the wrong and should apologize to her and explain to her why you would take them back. And like someone else suggested, take her with you to have her pick out what you exchange them for so that she still can pick out what she wants her niece to have from her

She's 13 and has a bf?& I would be upset too she tried and is excited just keep it you never know if your gonna need it!
So you're going to cut her out, continue to say she's never been there for you, and sell her sweet gesture for profit.
I under stand where everyone is coming from, ya it is hard for a young teen to get money, but the sister shouldn't get mad over you need other things. I myself got a lot of bigger clothes and if I knew where they where bought at id get the money back and get something I need. There is nothing wrong with doing so. Don't listen to anyone else, Because they don't know the whole situation.
she is 13.... my 13 yo niece would be beyond heartbroken if she bought something for my kids and i didnt keep it...
Also you really dont know what size the baby will be wearing. my daughter always wore a size smaller than her age and my son 2 sizes bigger, so it will depend on the baby. I had bought some 18 month spring/summer stuff for LAST summer and she didnt wear it but will probably fit in it this summer, so you really never know
I understand why you made sense of it being ok to return a few items or sell them considering your baby might now be able to fit them, but since your sister is so young that was probably a huge deal to her to even be a part of buying the baby clothes. I would have probably talked to her first and let her know the sizes wouldn't match the baby's growth and ask if it was ok to exchange for either the right sizes or if she wanted to go to the store with me to pick things out that might fit a little better. As for your dad's side of the family never really being apart of your life, it's the same for my family, whether or not you need them(I'm sure you've gotten use to life without having them around) they are family and if they want to step up now and help out it's ok to let them. People change when there are grandchildren and babies involved, I don't know why, but they just do.

No...there's a lot wrong with that actually. It's rude and ungrateful.
I understand why she is upset, honestly. If you wanted to exchange something fine but dont tell her about it. Also you never know what sizes kids will be, my son was wearing 12 months at 6 months old, then suddenly stopped growing and was in 18-24 for over a year.
WOW your incredibly rude! Reading this thread made me sad for her! Who needs a sister like you anyways?! Your acting like she is 18 years old and supposed to be involved?! She should have had her boyfriend buy herself a couple of outfits or whatever she likes. It was something nice that did not have to be done...haven't you ever heard the expression "it's the thought that counts"?! Who cares if she is just now buying your daughter stuff? She's not the mother or father of the baby she is not entitled to buy that child stuff through out your pregnancy!! Nobody is! You should be grateful anytime anyone buys your baby anything but your a coward trying to make a 13 yo look bad about being upset that her gesture was unappreciated! You just keep blaming a 13 yo and that makes you look incredibly shallow!!!! Have you ever bought her something or offered to try to be a part of her life? Um hello your not no princess,you can make an effort too! I can't believe how your pushing this all on a 13 yo girl and not owning up and taking responsibility! Goodness gracious you have a very short time to do some growing up before you daughter is born.Shame on you!
Glad some people actually agree with me to the people who don't, I could care less
The way I see it; I think she's right to be a little upset about it... You can never have "too much" when it comes to clothes (trust me!!) And I can see where you're coming from, too. I honestly wouldn't give the clothes away if they were given to me. I would be so grateful to anyone who gave my baby clothes; whether they "have anything to do with me or not". At least she's showing some kind of interest. Just saying.

Yes, you COULD care less. But you don't. So suck it the f**k up and act like an adult.
