I'm sorry MIL I was a snob. It was the hormones.

I just had my second baby. A dashing boy. >-< My PIL are great we told them the day before I was having a c-section the next day (they live out of town 6hrs away) and left that same night to be there for us. Well after I had baby I was a total snob to her. I really think it was the hormones, and then the c-section. I hated the experience.So we are visiting them in a xouple of weeks so I'm gonna get her a card to apologize and a gift. What should I get her?

  • I feel horrible. She came bearing gifts for my daughter. And called several dozen times asking what we needed for my son and finally decided to get him a play pen when we wouldn't give her an answer. Then when I told her we had one at my moms and I had no place to put it in the apartment she went and exchanged it for a swing which we did need. And they stayed the whole week and helped with my daughter and the new baby. She even cleaned my.whole house before leaving. And I was a rude snob.:( so what should I get her?

  • flowers and a sweet message on the card apologizing should be enough!

  • Large bouquet of flowers (I found that two dozen long stemmed roses do the trick for ANY mother-in-law you like), a heart-felt card with a sweet message from you. Treat her like it's Mother's Day, but double the efforts. Let her know that it wasn't you being snobby toward her; that it was the leftover hormones going through your system. I'm sure she knows how you are normally and accepts your sincere apology.
