AIBU irritated by grandparent jealousy

So DS is a few months old and the first grand baby on both sides. We see each set of grandparents every other week or once a week. If either visit is mentioned in general conversation to the other set of grandparents the answers always have a response with a jealous tone in them...almost teenager like. If in honest it's mainly my parents although PIL do the same from time to time and it's really starting to irritate me! AIBU to find this annoying or should this be expected?? Is grandparent rivalry a thing?

Nope grandparents here and we adore our Gc and help look after them so value our time with and without.

How old are you and they? We are the only ones not working full time so early 50s. Don't know any other grand parents not working.

They are bring ridiculous. My advice is ask them to give blessed grandchildren for a night and watch the beep beep back up as thry both withdraw. grin
