We have a little higher limit for that, $1000, but typically anything above $500 gets discussed as a matter of courtesy. If we consider it a major purchase, it gets talked about. Ultimately, I have the final say, but I don't like to have to exercise that.
Maybe its not the dollar amount, but the what it is that is causing her to have an issue? In general, women have a tendency to be a little more overprotective of kids. Something like a scooter, maybe she is thinking they will get hurt on them? Or maybe the purchase undermined something she was trying to teach the kids? (Such as ...We'll talk about it when you do XXX and XXX without an argument?)
