  • My MIL sends us cards for everything. She even sent our son a Halloween card. She is divorced from my FIL and he doesn't send cards at all. It's not personal, though. He just doesn't do it. He doesn't hug either, which is fine by me also.

  • honestly? I DO undersand how they see it fit to not send you one, after al your JUST their in-law, but if you send them one for theirs, then thats JUST RUDE! and the fact that they dont send your son one is totally unacceptable....but i am personally not a card person myself, i prefer e-mails of phone conversations.....

  • No my in laws don't send cardsbut I don't think anything about it they don't do it with anyone in the family because there are 13 kids over 100 grandkids and around 30 great grandkids.So it's no big deal here.My kids do have a few special aunts who send them cute things to there my space.

  • My Mother n law is so awesome to our kids... She lives in CA and we are in MO and goes above and beyond for our children. It's not the money, she sends books, takes out kids magazine subscriptions, she makes the kids feel like she's right here. Flys in just to spend time with them a couple times a year. We are very blessed..... And a bonus,lmao, she lives in CA!!!!!!!!

  • We get cards on our b'days and on xmas. They give my son cards for every holiday possible, including halloween, easter, valentines day, etc.. However, we never received a wedding card from them. I thought was strange.

  • My MIL gives them to DD cause she lives near, his paternal grandparents, always send birthday cards and Christmas gifts. I am assuming my MIL will start sending them as well when we move.
