I'm pretty sure I am because of bloody PMT

I live with dp and his son also lives with us. DSS mum is not really in the picture. Yesterday I gave him a fiver and said go and get your dad a Father's Day card and I will sort the present.

I ordered something on line which cost about £60 - an experience thingy.

DSS has come home today with a huge bag of gifts for dp that dp's Mum has bought.

I said did you tell your Nan I was sorting the present and DSS said 'yes but she said it was her job to sort it as dp is her son and I'm her grandson.'

I'm a bit hmm but am very pre menstrual so I don't know if I'm being unreasonable or not. Shall I return the gift?

Unless she has a habit of stepping on your toes, I think you are over-reacting. Can he have all the presents maybe?

How old is DSS?
Can he not just give all the gifts? Although I personally think £60 on Father's Day is a little OTT so I would probably return it (and buy yourself something if Father's Day has been sorted grin)

Who did the gift last year? You or MIL?

I should have added the experience thing is kind of for two so it's for him and his ds to enjoy. He does so much for my dc too so it's a thank you from everyone really.

And yes she is a toe stepper.

Why can't he have all the gifts?

He can it just now seems really excessive.

DSS is 15.

Did she not do anything last year? Maybe if it's something she has done in the past she still sees it as her place.

I don't think she did last year. I think I just got him something.

Yeah I'm being premenstrual. She has got form for being 'I'm his mummy-ish'. Dp is 47.
