My question is about gifts. Birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, etc. SS(13) is quick to ask DH for money to buy gifts for his mom- and yet doesn't get money from his mom to by gifts for DH. Whenever BM's birthday comes around, SS will ask DH for money to get her something. DH's birthday just passed and I assumed SS was going to get some help from his mom (since he got help from his dad for her) and NOTHING. I felt so bad for DH that SS didn't even remember it was his birthday. Same exact thing at Christmas.
Do you think this is a fight worth fighting? Its usually only $20... but for me its the principle. Either A. he just dosn't think of his dad in the same way as his mom or B. she doesn't offer to help and he doesn't feel comfortable asking her. I'm not sure if I should just stay out of it? My heart just breaks for DH. It has to be weird for SS becuase I get DH a present from DD. I get him a present from me. The only one he doesn't get any acknowledgement from is SS. Thoughts? Have others dealt with this? Thanks!
