HI i need some advice on what to do bout my childrens grandmother.

heres the sitaution

my daughter is now 22 months almost 23 months for her first easter (5months old) her "grandmother" gave her a pink tml jersey. now theres lot about this jersey before she even got it first off the only reason she got it for her was because my daughters grandpa (her ex) wanted to get it for my daughter first but didnt have the money to get it first bc he pays her so much money neways thats beside the point. so once she gave it to her she said "i want that back after she grows outta it so i can hang it on my wall blah blah blah" now my first thought was y the hellu give it to her anyways but i kept my mouth shut because i honestly didnt want a fight a few months later in july she said some nasty things about her son my fiance and hasnt spoke to us since she never came to my daughters first birthday never called nothing... then blamed it on me and her son for her not goin may we had another daughter she has never met her nothing never showed interest in her even being alive .. so now we still have this jersey and dont know what to do with it we dont want to keep it because first off we dont like hockey and the thought of why she bought it ticks us off anyways.. but we dont realli think its right to give it back to her when it was rude of her sayin that she wanted it back anyays so what do we do???

I agree with Darci, mail it back to the woman...not notes or nothing. When a grandma give a grandbaby something, they should not want it back....she is quite rude, but give her what she might give trouble in the future and it may make her realize too what she is missing out on. It is her loss in not taking part in her grandbabies lives.....but don't let her get in your waqy of loving and having fun with your little ones...they are with you for ever, she will either be in and out.....but you will be happy.

I would just mail it (without a letter or anything... just the jersey) to the repo grandma and let her hang it on her wall... so she has the satisfaction, and you don't have to look at it and get angry about it anymore. I would just want it out of my house, and I wouldn't want to have to explain things to her if I gave it to a charity or something and she wanted it back a couple years down the road. That way, she has the jersey and you don't have to think about it anymore. You are taking care of your family and too busy to worry about grandma and her immature ways and how frustrated she makes you.
