My hubbys family makes huge deals out of bdays. well, i did not send his grandma a card but we did call and wish her a happy bday. My MIL told me this morning that his grandma is complaining that she didnt get a card. We werent even invited to her bday dinner or else i wouldve stopped and bought her a damn card! I mean ...whats the big deal??? we told her happy bday! And why does this all of a sudden have to be my responsibility? I dont even remember my own fam. Does any one else get offended if they dont get cards on bdays of holidays or do you have family like this?Answer Question

I only send cards to the ones I like.... I my world a call counts the same as a card... Tell your MIL she effed up by playing social coordinator for her son rather than TEACHING HIM how to handle is own responsibilities. (It is a mother's job to raise an adult, not make them dependent.) And tell her that if it is expected that you want a calendar from her with every important date written in. And to make sure you have all the required addresses. I have 2 stupid SIL who will send cards for every freaking holiday and birthday, but don't say hello when we see them on the street. They are two-faced b!tches. I stopped playing their game many years ago. Sounds like you are a newlywed. Try it their way for a few years, but if they don't respond (see first post) then drop them. Except for his Grandmother. Her you have to put up with. Welcome to the lovely world of in-laws.
