A parent has been attacked online after posting a snap of her daughter’s massive pile of gifts over Christmas as parents struggle to make ends meet during the pandemic.
Kayleigh Moran, 26, splashed £600 on her seven-year-old child, Daisy.
There were so many presents that they filled an entire room of the mum’s house.
Sadly, her little one was called a “spoiled brat” after Kayleigh posted a snap of the gifts on Facebook.
How many gifts do you think is too many? Let us know in the comments…
The mum clapped back at haters by saying that little Daisy does a lot of charity work and has raised more than £1,000 this year for worthy causes.
The single mum said: “Daisy is my only child so I do spoil her a lot, but she's not a brat.
"She's a pageant girl for Natural Beauty Wales and does lots of volunteer and community work.
“She sorts through her old toys to donate to children's charities and she regularly holds collections for animal shelters and food banks.
“She is a beauty pageant finalist and she does a lot of charity work."
She continued: “Throughout the year she's raised over a thousand pounds for a children's cancer charity, as well as various collections for our local zoo, cat sanctuary and Women's Aid.
“I've worked since being 13 for everything we have.
“She's a clever girl as well as good hearted and I don't see why she shouldn't be spoiled.
"A couple of years back we went to Disneyland for Christmas and I still spent £700 just on presents."
She continued: "This year I've cut back slightly but she still has loads.
“I don't get my hair or nails done or have the latest phone, but Daisy goes to the hairdresser every few weeks and when Covid is over we're hoping she can have her nails done at a salon on a regular basis.
“I'd rather spend on Daisy and make sure she has everything and more.”
Daisy’s gifts this year include a tablet, an electric keyboard, a violin, a Bluetooth speaker, a Little Mix make up set, a selfie light and LOL Surprise dolls, plus more.

Kayleigh also purchased a Spanish dress and shoes for Christmas Day as Daisy is a big fan of the style.
Sharing the snap on Facebook, the mum said: "Prepared for once this year.
“Took four hours but finally wrapped my little girl's presents.”
However the student, who also runs a craft business and works as a waitress, was given lots of support after the hateful comments.
One mum said: "I absolutely hate posts like this.
“Not because of the amount of presents but because of all the b****y comments they get.”
Another added: "Wow there really are some b****y ‘mothers’ on here!
“So what, it’s her kid, she can buy what she wants for her child. Pathetic.”
