Ill warn you before I start that I know this makes me sound like a spoilt brat, but I'm pregnant, hormonal and frankly a bit pissed off!! My mums been buying quite a few bits for the baby. Blankets, muslin cloths, toiletries etc. she's previously told me off (and I mean properly got a bit angry and told me off) for buying an outfit for the baby because everyone else would gift is clothes. So I've only bought the basic stuff (plain babygrows and vests etc), but she's told me not to buy any blankets or muslin cloths because she's got so many for us (and I've been with her when she's bought some). I called her today and, because I was quite bored, asked if I could pick the baby stuff up to sort through. She was SO rude, and gave me a massive lecture on how these are gifts, and they're for when the baby arrives. My problem is this: she isn't going to wash them, take tags off etc. anything I might need immediately, like in the first few days, so muslin cloths blankets etc, I'm not gonna have. I have to go out now and buy double of these things (ok, not as much as if she hasn't got me anything, but she's got so much I shouldn't need anything). I'm also going to have a chunk of stuff land on me in the first few days of being a new mum to wash and sort out etc, when I'm quite sure I won't be in the mood for doing!!!! I'm so mad at her, because she's not seeing this from my side. After my lecture I just told her a simple no would have sufficed and I was coming off the phone because I felt she'd been very rude and left it at that. My MIL had been a bit arsey in the same way but she brought everything down the other week so we could sort through (I hadn't said anything to her because we're not close enough so I could). Do you think I'm being totally unreasonable and putting myself in a mega strop unnecessarily?!
