Ungrateful mom rant
I know this will come as ungrateful but I am a bit sad at how it was done.
We got Santa’s Anonymous bag today. I know, this was a priviledge and a nice donation. I was to stress that these are truly appreciated. It is not the gifts that count but the gesture.
Just feeling disappointed because these gifts will not do much for my kids.
I have a son who is 12 autistic and a daughter who is 6.
There is a book of stickers, obviously not new since almost half the stickers have been taken out and pages are ripped or colored on. I don’t know where my kids would use Santa stickers but still, having most of the book used up …
There is a set of doll clothes. I believe american doll or something like that. It is a dress for the doll. My daughter does not have this doll, there is no way I can afford this doll so I am not even going to wrap it. Her school has a donation bin so I will likely drop it off Monday morning.
Oh, and a box of cookies. Expired 2011. I opened it to see and they taste stale.
Again I know this is an extra and these items are very appreciated.
But my Christmas Bureau cards got delivered to wrong address by Canada Post. I called and they had a typo. I spoke with a neighbor who says they spent money. Nothing can be done about it. And it’s one dinner one day. But just disappointed. I wish they looked through the items more carefully.
