Reply to Holidays got me down

Luckily my mom loves all her grandkids equally and puts family as #1. Not saying she is perfect but she is great in this regard. Unfortunately my in laws remind me of my grandma who definitely had favorites and uneven treatment was common. Maybe this is why my mom is so great with this issue and I am sensitive about it. I don’t want my kids to feel how my siblings and I did growing up. I am a big believer in traditions especially at the holidays. I wish the in laws wanted to be a part of those traditions but maybe we need to start some of our own and let them make the effort to be a part of it.
