  • Are you sure they aren't just fishing for an invite? Could be they don't want to shove in and demand to see the kids.

    How about telling them they can come on one Sunday a month for dinner? Then it shuts up the argument.

  • I agree with PP.

    At the same time, i understand what you mean. If they want to see the kids, they should make an honest effort.
