Do you see a difference in these introductions?

The whole family was out to eat.  Some friends of my parents stopped by our table to say hi to them.  

This is how my dad introduced us, pointing us out as he did:

This is our son, Matthew.  Our daughter in law, Allyson.  Our grandson Quint and our granddaughter Brooklyn.  This is our daughter, Marissa.  That is her husband, Sean.  Their son Seamus, his twin Shay, their younger daughter Cassidy, and their youngest son Malone.  

Do you see a difference in how my dad introduced my brother and his family vs how he introduced me and mine?

Yes. Was it your dad trying not to be repetitive or does he treat your family differently than your brother's?

Yes, but are you just being sensitive?

You're taking it too personally.

Yes, it sounds like he is verbally distancing himself from your family (her dh 🆚 our sil). But as another poster said, he may be trying to to be repetitive. Does he treat the families the same?

Does he treat your family different from your brother's? Could it be he didn't want to sound repetitive?

He introduced her brother's kids as his grandchildren, but not her kids. And her brother's wife as their dil, but her husband as "husband."

Quoting mama_danetta: Not really. Why what's the difference?
