Fully Loaded

Katie worries about her brother, Adam's, impulsive spending. She says he loves to spoil himself with fancy toys so he can brag to others. Adam says what's the point of buying the things he has if he can't show them off?

 

 

 

"I have a distinct taste for nice things. It could be worse. I could have no taste at all."

 


 

Playing Favorites?

Kacedra says her sister, Gina, spends thousands spoiling her 4-year-old daughter, Dawson, and is creating a shopaholic who only wants to spend time with "Auntie Gina." Gina sees nothing wrong with spoiling her neice.
