Ok so long story my MIL offered to give us $100 dollars as a wedding present before the wedding so we could buy what was left on the list (this was her wedding gift) then when we found out we were pregnant she wanted to buy us a crib for DD but we had already picked the one and bought the rest of the items in the bedroom set...so she said ok well i still want to buy something for the baby as an early gift for your baby shower is there anything else you were looking at? We told her about a play yard and swing and left it up to her to pick which one (we weren't expecting much we never ask her for anything) so surprise to us she spent nearly $400 on a play yard and a swing we were blown away couldn't stop thanking her.....fast forward a couple months and our doctor told me i had gestational diabetes so FIL (who makes all the money) tells his wife to come to town and buy us food so the baby and i are healthy (we told him it wasn't necessary he told us if she doesn't come back with receipts over a couple hundred dollars he would be very angry with us and if we tried to pay it back he would stop talking to us). Lastly for christmas they bought DD an exersaucer toy ......so here's the problem we've had a falling out pretty much since DD was born and she told us since we were so ungrateful we could pay her back for all they've done.
so my question would you pay back nearly $700 in gifts or pack them up and give them back i don't believe in giving something and then holding it over someones head...but i guess they do
PS. i am 17 weeks pregnant and can't exactly snap my fingers and make the money appear ok vent over
PSS. we have tried many times to mend fences but when we do it has to be on their terms they are never willing to meet us half way they expect us to make the trips and when they come to our town they don't bother to come over to even see there granddaughter(they come to our town five to 6 times a month and haven't seen there granddaughter in 5 months) but we are neglecting them by not being able to afford to make the trip
