: : I have never bought presents for my other children or other peoples. Your older daughter will have her own birthday and she will get presents then.I can honestly say my kids have never told me they felt left out. I always let them pick a present they would like to give to their sibling.and they like that.."open mine first!!".... I think it would end up costing a small fortune if you did it for every occasion. exp.- my friend has two DD's and if one girl has 'pizza day' she will buy them both pizza to have at school even though the 2nd one will have 'pizza day' the following week in her class....I'm sure your DD just feels left out 'right now'...and it sounds like your doing a good job, I don't think she will resent you.When is her b-day?? good luck and let us know how it went.
You know I got to thinking. you know your child best and if want to get her a little something well then gosh darnit you do that. Who am I to say...LOL!!!
