Last year, he was extremely overtired and cranky when we were opening presents. We had been at my in-law's all day, he couldn't sleep in the car, and by the time we got to my mom's house he was in a horrible mood. He was 5 then and is 6 now.
She gave him his present and it was a stuffed animal. I said "what do you say to Grandma?" and he said "I don't like it. I never like Grandma's presents". I told him to apologize and he refused, so we left and didn't bring the present. Before we left, she said "that's okay, I just won't get you any presents anymore". He said he didn't care.
We were on the phone discussing Christmas plans and she told me she was sticking by what she said and didn't get him anything. So, he'll be sitting there empty handed as all of his cousins open presents from Grandma. I told her it was her choice, but it seemed petty.
I'm dreading how upset he's going to be. What do you think?
