My daughter asked for an American Girl closet for the clothes four years ago for Christmas. My brother in law built her one. It was over 2 1/2 feet tall and was the size of an end table. What she really wanted was just a simple plastic carrier that held the clothes and doll...it was $24 at Target. My sister has made several comments about the cost of the supplies for the closet. The next year he built her a doll bed, it was twice as expensive as the one she wanted. But he just had to do it his way. He spent hours welding on it. He bought new tools to complete it. It end up costing a small fortune. All she wanted was something simple like this... http://www.americangirl.com/shop/beds-bedding/kits-bed-bedding-ckb89 She will be 13 in August. She asked for a new bed and bedding. My husband, son, and I built her a platform bed with storage. Her room is 10 x 9. She wanted to get rid of stuff in her room. She sold her old bed, dresser, some toys, stuff animals, DS, and the silly closet. My sister saw where a friend posted on that her granddaughter would love the closet. She made the remark, "Isn't that nice!" Today I got a text from her that "______ wants the bed that he made T back. He does not want it sold." This ****** me off. In my opinion, once you give a gift it is that person's to do with it as they please. I think my sister is out of line. I responded, "T placed it in the attic. She was keeping it for her children. If ___________ would like it, come get it." She responded with, " _____________ just does not want it sold like the closet!" My mother says I was hateful. I believe my sister and brother in law were out of line. My brother in law is in his 60's and has no children. There are no other siblings to give it to. I believe that both items are T's to do as she pleases. She used the money from the closet and a few toys to buy a new area rug for her room. She only kept one piece of furniture from before the new bed--a shelf her dad made her when she was two. And her mattress. She wants to be a big kid...not a little girl. I am proud of her for trying to earn the money to redecorate it herself. She choose what to get rid of and what to keep...and if truth be told; she would have sold the bed, but I talked her out of it. I was so upset with her...she called my mother crying because "Mrachelle made T sell her stuff that Uncle _____ made her." "Mrachelle's husband is jealous of the wonderful stuff Uncle _____ can build." I am spitting nails. I blocked her from my facebook and refuse to discuss this anymore with my mother. My mother thinks I should apologize and call my friend and get the closet back. I said, "NO! T made a deal and it stands." Who is wrong? I am so mad right now I am not sure I am thinking correctly. Background...My BIL is older than my mother. My sister is younger than I am by 12 years. She can not have children because of illness. My BIL does have a son that is 23 years old and lives with his mother. He has saw BIL once in the last 18 months. He does not drive, does not go to school, and works with his mother cleaning houses when he wants money. My children were very close to my sister before BIL came along. Since their marriage, he determines when they come to visit, how long they stay, and what they do when they are here. I spent three weeks with them last summer and I was so uncomfortable the whole time I was there. He said less than twenty words to me. I made dinner most nights. One night I stopped to pick up pizza on the way home. I called to find out the kind to get. He threw a fit and changed the order when my sister told him what she told me to order. I ended up with three types of pizza and a box of wings for three people. He does crap like that all the time.
