My husband has a son. We get him every other weekend. It fell this year that we had him for Easter (first time in 4 years).
At my MIL house, they did a Easter Basket hunt. My hubbys sister was there with her 3 kids. They were told to hunt for their basket and not tell if they'd found another kids basket. After a while.... and SIL kids finding theirs mine had not found his yet. I told him to ask Grandma. She said (not even directing answer to him), "He doesnt get a basket, he got his at his house"..... so, I'm assuming that the other 3 kids did not get theirs and this was their hunt..... SO WHY could she not have said this from the beginning so that my step son was not searching all over the house for a basket he was never going to find???
Hubby did say something day after, but being to casual about it in my opinion.
This sort of thing happens often when it comes to my step son.
What if anything should I do???
MIL is very VERY controlling and munipulative

Next time, ask if all the children in attendance will be treated the same. If your MIL doesn't treat all her grand kids the same, that's her problem. I would make sure that there is something for him the next time - if you choose to bring him there with the way you know your MIL will treat him.
I think she is a w**ch for making a child look for an Easter Basket that's not there.
