DH has a large family and most of them live nearby, but rarely (I am talking once every 3 months) come over to see the baby, or help their mother (my MIL) out. One brother we suspected stopped seeing coming over to see baby because we didn't pick him as Godfather. The sister would rather look at pics of him online than see him in person, and she lives about 20 minutes away. Only his younger brother, who we did pick as Godfather, does anything to help out with the MIL AND FIL besides my husband, and he also comes to visit our son every week. Kind of makes me sad for my son, since I have no siblings and my extended family doesn't live near us. A lot of my husband's extended family are trashy and I wouldn't want them around my son. But his aunt and uncle? Shouldn't they want to spend more time with him? Granted, they are not the best role models for behaving like adults... so maybe it is for the best. I just wonder how I am going to handle this in the future when my son is old enough to realize and understand that his family are a$$holes.

Fortunately your husband and you are his family. Like you said they are not the best role models. If you were different you may not have even noticed. But you have noticed, maybe they also sense how you feel????????
