Our expert says:
Nothing wrong or even unusual in someimes wanting to be quiet. I suspect you feel ashame an inadequate for being out of work, though this oftn happens to people through absolutely no fault of their own. So you fel sensiive when other people buy things for your son ; but you give him always what none of them can --- the genuine love of a father. And that cant be bought or sold.
Sounds like your wife is sensitive about her moher's onsession with the kid, but doesnt want to stir up family strife --- she's been around them longer, and mabe knows that its better to ignore this till they go home.
Ever thought of persuading her into some marriage counselling to improve both of your problem solving skills ?
