Loving this thread! I can relate to many of the posts so far..
I have so many but this is the most recent
DD: crying because MIL has taken her and walked off and left her security blanket behind
MIL: Oh DD you and your silly security blanket, always the same, never a new one, your mother is so cheap.
Said right in front of me, DH, FIL, BIL and DHs Grandmother, and not one of them said anything. I just said actually she likes that one and the whole point of a security blanket is to have only one, to which she just rolled her eyes.
Right, cos I'm the one talking cr@p 😏
Anyway I'm going to really enjoy showing her how cheap I can actually be when it comes to her birthday and Mother's Day, because in case she's forgotten I'm the one that bothers to get her a gift and card as none of her sons could be bothered, if they even remembered.
