Grandparents showing favoritism, not really sure how to handle this.
Let me first say, I have always been grateful for how my parents have been with my daughter. I was adopted as a teenager and even though my daughter isn't blood they have always treated her as such. She was their first "grandchild" and they spoiled her rotten. She is now 7 and they still ask to take her overnights once a week and are constantly buying her things. She loves being with them and I am thrilled they have this sort of relationship.
But, I have two sons as well aged 18 months and 4 months. My parents weren't too thrilled about either pregnancy and have voiced their opinion that they were mistakes. I had an IUD placed in August and when my dad found out he made the comment "two kids too late". :(
Since their births they had never bought them anything until recently. They rarely spend time with them as well. I don't expect them to take them overnight as they are still babies but I feel like they are a complete afterthought.
This past Christmas we all got together and they showered my daughter with gifts. She had two huge gift bags full of random stuff, a stocking full of goodies, and an easy bake oven. They bought my youngest son a blanket and my middle child a little truck. I was grateful they at least bought them something this time, considering last Christmas my middle child got nothing. I know the boys are still young but I am afraid if things continue this way they will see this and feel rejected. I don't want to hurt my daughter's relationship but I don't like the favoritism. It breaks my heart they don't think of the boys in the same regard. How do I handle this?
