My mom is playing favorites - AGAIN!
A while back I posted "when grandparents have favorites" and was surprised that I wasn't in the boat alone. Well, here it is Christmas, and once again I'm having a problem. My mom will have my niece on 12/15 and wants to make it Christmas for her and my son. Well, why should my son have to celebrate that early? I'm just aggravated. My mom bought my DH and I a nice gift and said it was to all of us (my son included) - it is a dvd/vcr combo which is what I had mentioned that I'd like to have. When I saw the price I told her it was way too much, but she got it anyway (with help from my brother and grandma) and we will all use it. Well, my son has 2 movies to open at her house, while my niece has a VCR, a fish tank with fake fish (which my son will die for) and who knows what else.
Don't get me wrong - it isn't gifts that I'm concerned about, it just hurts that once again a difference has been made. I dread even talking about it with my hubby because he'll get all bent out of shape as well. Now I have to listen to my mom if I don't go, and listen to him too. Gee whiz.
