  • Lol nope, call the bitch and hope that it makes her feel bad for not calling. LOL

  • No way! "Kill" her with kindness by calling is my advice! Make sure to say her age a few times ... "I just cannot belive you are [AGE}", "you look so good for being [AGE], "your son and I were trying to figure out what year you were actually born in, and once we used a calculator we came up with [YEAR OF BIRTH], is that right?; etc. (Little over the top at the end, but I know exactly how you feel, and as a Mother, that is completely beyond me ~ no matter the circumstances!)

    Don't lower yourself to her level by not calling.

  • I would just do something nice for her...two wrongs dont make a right. Seriously, its her birthday, no one likes to not have some kind of acknowledgement. :)

  • I agree, call her and tell her "Happy Birthday". You don't want to act like she does, and you'll be the better person.

  • I would send a card or call if I really wanted to. Otherwise, forget it. You don't need to get into it really. Let him decide about himelf. Sounds like the less contact with MIL, the better. I used to wish things were different, but I decided to simplify my life. I waited until it started to effect my kids. Hope you don't wait that long.

  • Just call her and tell her "Happy Birthday" and then send her a birthday card-I hope they still have it! We got one for my MIL and it stated, something to the effect "Be happy you aren't this old AND Pregnant!"!!! We got this card for my MIL on her birthday and sent it out(so it would reach her in time) right before we found out we were pregnant w/our first child!! HAHA!!

  • Seriously sometimes two wrongs do make a right. I would totally call her and put emphasis on her age. Like oh my you are this many years old. Damn I didn't realize how old you were. Blah,blah, blah - it's good to get back at people and let them know that they if they mess with you you can dish it out also!!!

  • If you really think she's nasty, then i guess not. But if you don't really think that (and your hubby doesn't either) then I'd call her. No use "getting back".
