Exp gave DS his Xmas card (1st Xmas since split) DS is 3 - and it doesn't even say son on it!

To be fair technically mine doesn't either it's one from moon pig with his name & photo on it.

I know it's a really minor thing but it annoys me!

Some people wouldnt be bothered but I would be a little bit. Is it just a card out of a pack?

Since when was giving 3 year olds a Christmas card a 'thing'?

I think I'm getting old.

I think you need to find bigger things to get annoyed about...

Do Christmas cards say 'son'?

Thought that was a birthday thing.

AnnieLobeseder Thu 11-Dec-14 22:03:52

Who on earth gives their children Christmas cards, let alone personalised ones? confused

I think you're massively overthinking this.

I've never sent my children cards, am I supposed to?

Bowlersarm Thu 11-Dec-14 22:04:38

His card doesn't have the word 'son' on it? Have I got that right (surely I can't have...?)

It would not bother me in the slightest. My family have never given each other 'named' cards, just a normal Christmas card - if we're feeling generous!

This is a bit of a non issue. Who gives their three year old child a Christmas card?!

Mousefinkle Thu 11-Dec-14 22:06:05

Another one who doesn't give their children Christmas cards. Presents galore! Cards seem so utterly pointless. You're overthinking it, hugely.

Huh? DD doesn't get a Christmas card and if she did, it wouldn't say Daughter on it. Is this a thing?

softlysoftly Thu 11-Dec-14 22:06:42

Not a tradition in our family to do named Christmas cards and I don't give them to our kids. You are being silly on this one sorry!

WD41 Thu 11-Dec-14 22:06:43

Yep the strange thing here isn't the lack of son on the card, it's parents giving their 3yo a Xmas card in the first place

quirkycutekitch Thu 11-Dec-14 22:09:24

Looks like it's just me & you TheReluctantCountess grin not one out of a pack.

We've always done 'family' cards mum, dad, nan, grandad etc.

MrSheen Thu 11-Dec-14 22:11:18

I've never sent cards to my children or given anyone a card with how they are related to me written on it.

ChippingInLovesChristmasLights Thu 11-Dec-14 22:12:07

Yes, it would bother me.

I am in my 40's and have always had a Christmas card from my parents, all of my family and friends do the same. According to many on MN it's chavy but we buy mum/daughter/Aunty cards. I don't care what MN think, we like it...right from the dole budging gits to the high court judge fgrin <shrug>

However, he's your ex for a reason, he's going to constantly remind you why that is so... You are going to have to do a Frozen...Let It Go. Really, save your upset and anger for when it really matters, otherwise you're going to end up in a right state and it won't change anything.

I hope you and DS have a lovely Christmas fsmile

i don't give my kids christmas cards!

pigwitch Thu 11-Dec-14 22:13:35

That's just picky - get a life

sooperdooper Thu 11-Dec-14 22:14:12

My dads never ever given me a card with daughter on, better get cracking for a full on row next time I see him confused

Non issue, stop looking for an argument

pictish Thu 11-Dec-14 22:14:26

I hate those son, nan, wife, auntie, mum cards personally.
Can he even read at 3?

Yabu.

quirkycutekitch Thu 11-Dec-14 22:15:11

Thanks chipping I was starting to wonder why all the card shops bothered putting all those cards on their shelves if no one else was buying them!

LooksLikeRainDear Thu 11-Dec-14 22:15:12

i dont understand that eatshit, i want to but i don't.

what did your step mum write? love from eatshit's step mum and eatshit's adoptive father?

PenguinsandtheTantrumofDoom Thu 11-Dec-14 22:15:58

I find the obsession with finding a card with the right name on it odd, tbh. Just find a nice, special card for people that you think they will like. You write their name on it, hence negating the need for the pre-printed card to indicate who it's to.

Honestly, you are going to spend a lot of time annoyed with your ex if something this tiny gets you ranting smile
