Having children is said to be an exceptional experience, but what if your family does something weird?

A Redditor took to the forum and asked, “Am I wrong for not buying my sister what was on her registry?


The Original Poster (OP) is a 29-year-old woman with a younger sister who is 26 years old and pregnant

Recently, her sister had a baby shower and created a registry of items she needed for the baby. However, OP did not purchase anything from the registry. Instead, she ordered custom-made onesies with her niece’s name on them and a changing pad. 

Due to the cost of caring for her geriatric dog, OP did not have much money to spend on gifts. Nevertheless, OP believed that the gifts she gave were cute and meaningful, and she assumed that her sister would also receive many other presents.

What Happened Next?

After the baby shower, OP’s sister pulled OP aside and inquired why she hadn’t selected anything from her registry. OP explained that she found the custom-made onesies and changing pad adorable and that the registry was only a suggestion. 

However, her sister was frustrated and claimed that the registry items were what she needed and that OP’s gifts were useless. She then walked away.

Later, OP discovered that her sister had spoken to their mother, who expressed disappointment that OP didn’t choose anything from the registry. According to her mother, OP should have selected something from the registry, as she knew how important it was to her sister, and it would have been helpful.

OP is upset after the incident because she was excited about the custom-made onesies and changing pad she had given as a gift and had no idea that the registry was so crucial to her sister.

OP wants to know if she is wrong? The conflict over the baby shower gift left OP feeling hurt and unsure.

Was OP right to gift something out of the registry? Was it inappropriate for OP sister and mother to be angry on OP? How would you have reacted in this situation?
