Quoting Captain Obvious:" I would personally just buy my own smurf and not rely on somebody who isn't reliable."
Quoting Mama❍Moon:" I would just buy what I needed, if she gets you something later that you already have I would return it or sell it. "
Quoting Callie L.:" Okay, so my MIL and I don't get along very well anymore, but she has reluctantly offered to buy a few ... [snip!] ... have the money right now, Oh I forgot, Oh this, Oh that." I just don't want to be cribless when my baby gets here. Thoughts?"
Quoting Angel [Mariah's Mommy]:" You sound like an ungrateful smurf. "Yes, you don't know my MIL. Everything I do is wrong, if I purchase it, she will accuse me of not liking her, If I don't buy it, and don't say anything to her to remind her she'll say, "well, it's her fault, she didn't remind me." I'm ALWAYS wrong, I'm quite used to it, but in this case, I would rather her hate me a little more, than have my child sleeping on a floor.
Quoting Saffy Sly:" It's your baby, not her baby. Even if she offered, she's not obligated to follow through. You should just assume that you're going to have to pick up the things for your child."
