Am I just being petty?
Yesterday was my dd's 1st b-day. She is my mil's only grandchild. We had a little gathering at my house, and everyone brought gifts. Mil buys our dd a package of baby socks (retail value $3 at Dollar General). Later on, she brags to the others that she bought a new blender.
Am I wrong for feeling that my daughter got screwed over for her b-day (by her grandmother)? Not that a b-day is about getting gifts, but it was her 1st b-day, and very special.

well, maybe she needed a new blender. Who are you to say that instead of spending HER money on something for HER that she needed to spend that money on YOUR child.
Selfish indeed.... feeling entitled much??

send her the socks back with a note that says if she can't buy her more elaborate and expensive gifts that you don't want to have anything to do with her any more.... I mean its all about the price tag right?

Next question overall
Do you have any experiences with newfoundland dogs? Have you known any?
