  • He can't help how his mom is but he can help how she speaks to you and it was your baby's birthday not your SS.

  • What does your step son have to do with your toddler's birthday? That one has me confused.

    You might as well just get used to it now, because it won't get better. Your husband won't stand up to her, she won't treat your toddler the same as your stepson, she's always going to have that attitude for some reason.

  • What a NICE mil! Ignore the baby for her b-day, yet lavish the older child with expensive gifts. Sounds like a case of showing favoratism, and NO, you don't have to put up with it.
