First off I am going to say that I LOVE MY LITTLE LUCY MORE THAN ANYTHING!
SIL is pregnant and just found out that they are having a boy. I always wanted to have a boy before girl because I love the idea of the older brother (that's how I grew up). ON DH side of the family DD is the fourth granddaughter and now a grandson. It is awesome that we will have a little boy to spoil... and that is exactly what is going to happen!
There is just one thing that bothers me... SIL is spoiled to the max (only girl) and she had the first grandchild, who is also spoiled to the max... now BIL who is the family favorite is having the first grandson... I know this is nothing that I can control and it is really stupid for me to feel this way but I'm just bittersweet about the whole thing.
I went Christmas shopping with MIL and SIL this weekend and it was crazy... MIL always puts pajamas in our "stockings"... I picked out what I liked (typical thermal top and bottoms), MIL picked out ones for the two other SILs (flannel gift sets that were probably about $10), SIL picked out hers... $40!! Whatever she wants she gets, and everyone else gets inferior stuff! I have been raised to be fair... my own mom will set a limit and each of us will get stuff up to that limit, if she doesn't find anything to make it up to the limit she will get us visa gift cards (or if there is something that she wants to get but doesn't have enough left.
I know this is a rambling, and petty vent but I can't stand biting my tongue anymore but don't want to start a fight with DH about it and I guess it just felt good to type it out.
