Having a baby can be an exciting yet stressful time, especially when it comes to preparing for the little one's arrival. So, when our expectant mom sent her in-laws a link to the perfect playpen she wanted for her baby, she was a little disappointed when they opted for a cheaper, less functional version. Now, she's wondering if she would be the bad guy for asking them to return it and get the one she originally asked for. Let's dive into this baby gift drama! 👶🎁

Baby Gift Dilemma: Entitlement or Fair Request? 🤷‍♀️

Our soon-to-be mom is in a pickle: she asked her in-laws for a specific playpen but received a cheaper, less functional one instead. She's considering asking them to return it and get the one she originally wanted, but worries about coming off as entitled. With just two weeks left before her due date, she's left wondering if it's worth the drama. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🧐
