Ok so my husband and I agree that we are done with his family. We are sick of being ignored and only asked to come over because they want to see our DD. My husband is on deployment and over the 6 months that he's been gone the only time I've heard from his family is last month and his mother wanted to see our DD. No "how are you?" "do you need anything?" just "I want to see ------"
His sister was down and had her babys 1st bday party and I didn't know about it until after they left. His other sister, her DH is on deployment and his family moved her back from out of state so she won't be alone but yet me, with a baby gets no help at all?!
So my DH and I talked it over and agreed that is family will not be coming to our DD 1st party. Do you think i'm over reacting? We've just finally gotten sick of their ways

I think you have to do what is in the best interest of you, DH and your baby. My MIL was the same way when my DH was deployed (years ago). She never called, she called him on his return to tell him how sorry she thought he was. Since we have children she has tried to be a part of our lives. She is a venomous woman, and has removed herself from our lives when we stopped allowing her tantrums to dictate our lives. After my second pregnancy, I just couldn't live mine and expect my children, to live our lives on her whim. My DH is finally fed up as well, perhaps things will improve in the future. But I've stopped losing sleep over it, you and your family should too. Good luck. :o)
