May I have a rant please? This past Saturday, we held Nolan's 1st birthday party! We had such a good day, set out a bunch of baby pools and sprinklers, had all of Nolan's friends over... it was wonderful. The issue is my 2.5 year old nephew, (we will call J) who I love dearly. Well, J is quite obviously FIL's favored grandchild (it is just J and Nolan) he is always buying him toys and he watches him a lot because BIL and his wife are either working or going out to bars. I am not saying FIL doesn't love Nolan, he does... but there is definitely a difference in how they are treated. TBH, J is becoming a bit of a spoiled brat, getting aggressive with Nolan, he will snatch toys right out from under him and get in his face and YELL at him... poor Nolan has no idea what is going on. I should mention, J is not like this as much with his parents around, only when FIL is there. ANYWAY- Nolan's party is going very well, DH sits on the floor with Nolan to start opening gifts and everyone sits down to watch. We aren't even through opening the first gift when I look over and FIL is making a huge deal out of giving J a gift and having him open it in front of everyone. (This wasn;t even a 'family' function, it was our friends and neighbors who don;t even know FIL or J) He is going on and on about how he knows how hard it is for J to watch someone else open gifts and he doesn't have any. I wanted to be like "seriously!!! The other 14 kids that are 3 and under are just fine watching Nolan open gifts and not having their own!" I was very hurt by the fact that he stole the attention away from Nolan on his day, even though Nolan won't remember it, I found it really inappropriate. Then he took J into the other room to play with his new toy and didn't even watch Nolan open his gifts. Am I wrong for being annoyed?
