chess set to fix a error please.

I normally do not like to post excessive wishes. Because I am so greatful for the help that we have received. I am kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place. My oldest wanted a chess set for Christmas. I was not sure how much she really wanted I chess set. So when we went to the $ tree her sister got her one. And I proceeded to get her other things on her list. She was very excited to get the chess set. She asked if I would play with her. I said as soon as I was done cooking, she opened the box to set it up and found out that we have doubles of 4 pieces and are missing 4 of the black side. This started a full on melt down. I told her that as soon as we get the extra $10 we would get her a descent set. Here is the thing her dad only gets paid twice a month. I have already made a payment arrangement with a collection company to pay off a bill I owe a college so I can start school and finish my degree. They settled for $1000 less then I owed if I could pay if off by the end of the year. We are going to struggle the next month but it was worth it. She is heart broken, that is what I get for shopping the dollar tree it is expected. I just did not expect her to be this upset over such a simple gift. I would exchange it but the $ tree is in another town which is 20 mins away and not worth the gas it would cost. We are truly wiped out we will make it work this is just a want not a need.

She learned chess in school. I am going to have to make sure all the kids learned it, cause a quite house seems impossible this day and age.

Agree with mom2blaze :) Chess is an awesome game! My older three learned to play and we're working on the three year old! My two year old is still in the 'checkers' stage. lol Chess is very theraputic and quiet! That's why I taught them to play ;) So when they got good and into a game, the house would be quiet! Concentration is a beautiful (and quiet) thing :) So happy she got her new set!
