Allearia Posted January 26, 2011 Share Posted January 26, 2011 I really think it was an oversight on her part. She is almost 80, and was moving over my older son's birthday in December and told him his card would be a bit late. She doesn't have much money to begin with so he was actually pretty good about not being disappointed, though he asks sometimes when it will get here. My younger ds' birthday is Friday and I just got a card and check for him for $10. I know my older ds will be hurt at not receiving a card and money. Like I said, it is probably an oversight, she didn't send anything at Christmas and we are fine with it. I am wondering if I should wait a few days to see if she sends his before showing younger ds, or even if I should just tell older ds that his money was there too and give him $10. Is it wrong to lie in this situation? I am not sure if I want dh to bring it up to her because she probably can't spare it so I would be happy to just pay, but then if ds thanks her later it may get awkward. She lives across the country so we won't see her until this summer. Or should I just explain the situation to older ds? He is 9. Or we could tell him the truth and give him $10 ourselves.
