    It used to bug me when my mother did it but I think that was more to the fact that I'm almost certain she would try to get him (my eldest) to call her Mum when my back was turned.
    If MIL did it, I wouldn't mind but I have seen my MIL get angry at her daughters in-laws for calling the grandkids "my boys" etc, so I doubt she would.
    I tend to think if there are other issues with that particular relationship, especially if it's to do with being competitive, it's bound to bug you so much more.

    oh sorry to hear. I did think you were indirectly saying it would bother you if your mil did it, thanks for clarifying

    I don't think anyone does with dd, but yes it would bug me. There's an ownership in the phrasing and it would rub me up the wrong way for sure. Not sure how I'd deal with it though.

    My dad does it and it doesn't bother me. Because of this it would be unfair of me to think it was wrong or annoying if MIL or FIL did it as my children are just as much my parents grandchildren as they are my parents in Law's.

    Unless their behaviour follows through - ie they're truly trying to physically take away your child and make them 'mine' I think it really is a battle you need to not bother with. A first world problem really.

    I grew up without my grandparents around, I love that my kids have 4 grandparents who are very involved in their lives and I would never dream of telling any of them not to call them my girl or my boy.

    Wow i have never thought about this. No it doesn't bother me at all. How lucky my kids are to have people invested in their wellbeing, is how i view it. I dont think of my kids as my possessions, as being mine, to the exclusion of others, including grandparents, iykwim.

    If they are family I dont see what the problem is.
    If they said my gorgeous grandson would that be acceptable?
    For me personally I find it sweet. If they said son/daughter then that would be crossing the line and i would just tell them not to say that as they are not their child.
