And the beat goes on from my daughter-in-law. My son tried to dress grandson before taking him to daycare, but it happened to be one of the many outfits *I* bought him, which she won't allow him to wear. She said, "He's only allowed to wear clothes that MY family gets him." Why? I have no idea. Maybe because before he was born I bought tons and tons of cute, new looking baby clothes at garage sales and she freaked out and told me he can only wear new clothes because of the possible "germs." I told her I washed it all, but that didn't matter. Ok, well, it's her baby so I bought him a lot of cute and expensive NEW clothes since then, but he's never worn any. I'll bet he's not allowed to play with any toys my side of the family gives him too. From now on I'm putting money in the bank (in my name) for grandson. Why get him things he isn't allowed to use? As for son, he's so stressed out over how she is treating him that he won't argue about this idiosyncrasy at this time. One last thing: Grandson is delayed in speech and was tested for Early Intervention Services (he is 15 months). He qualified. daughter in law cried herself a river and refused to let him go saying that "they did it wrong. He'll outgrow it." Son can't send him without her consent too, but he's very worried. At 15 months, this child has no vocabulary at all. He babbles. Poor kid.
