Embracing the Black Sheep

Backstory: Typical gifts to me from my brother include an air mattress inflater (I don’t own an air mattress), a vinyl Playboy purse, and a used Maglight

I KNOW that I am SUCH a Mother – control-freak – however: please remember to get your brother a card, do not need to get a gift. A home-made from the computer or otherwise would be great.  I know that he can be delinquent at times with tangible things BUT, at times, he seems to live on the perifory(?) of our family relationships and I want us to really embrace and focus on him for his 30th B’day.  It is a ‘Mother thing’ and I promise that y’all are not left out of the ‘Mother thing’ at certain times.   Better stop, while I THINK? I am ahead!  XOXOXO  MAMA

      Not sure which is worse, getting crappy gifts from your brother or getting no gifts at all. At least when you get crappy gifts, you know that he at least thought of you.

      It does suck that the black sheep gets the most attention – I totally relate…

      I’d just return the favor. Get him a tampon holder. Make a game of how crappy the gifts can get. At least then you can get a few laughs.

      I’m with Rachel, that sounds great!

      In our family grown-ups (18+) don’t get gifts except on rare occasions, so it’s not really an issue for my brother & I.
