My mom usually spends an equal amount of money on us kids and on all of her grandchildren, and she usually puts a lot of thought into what she gives, too. For example, my sister really loves to read and she's going to college now, too, so Mom got her a tablet and a gift card so she could load up the ereading app with books. My brother is an avid gamer so she got him a new gaming keyboard and some video games that he'd mentioned a few months ago. But for me? I got a bath set. I'm allergic to just about every soap on the planet, so not only was this one of those crap generic gifts to start with, but it's also something I absolutely cannot use. Plus, the tablet and stuff she gave to my siblings amounted to about $300 each, whereas my giftset was $8.88 (the Walmart tag was still on it). I'm really hurt by the fact that she spent so much money and put some thought into their gifts while mine was just an afterthought cheapy thing.
Meanwhile, I went around to all her siblings and gathered up old photos to have them restored and copied into a big photo album to chronicle her life from her parents' marriage to the birth of her last grandchild, with special print pages and little stories, etc., to make it a sort of family history kind of thing. I put in a lot of thought and time into my gift to her, and a fair amount of money on the photo printing and special papers, and I get a throwaway gift?
Is it wrong for me to be hurt by this?
