I have asked this once before when I was really bothered by it & it still bugs me. Long story short this neighbour of mine started giving me baby clothes for my son. It was like every 3 months I would get stuff and I would always buy them a little something as a thank you. It started off from a garage sale they had & didn't get rid of it so passed it to me when they saw me. Its been a year now and I have not been given anything which is fine BUT it all stopped when I went to the neighbours house to give them money for a bike they gave my dd. I couldn't accept it for free but when I went there the sister was there (she was the one passing clothes along to me but doesn't live there) well what I think is I pissed her off because I gave them money for the bike? even though I was buying stuff as a thank you usually a bottle of wine (because I was told they liked red wine) I never asked for the clothes. I was showing gratefulness & being nice. When I was there I also asked the Mom who lives there maybe one day we can have a play date with my dd & hers to be friendly. Well, it all stopped everything since that day & now when I see them i feel real weird and don't know them well enough to confront or say anything. I know ppl have told me who cares? don't let it bug you! but it does? what did I do wrong? i feel like when we walk by now the daughter doesn't want to say hi kind of on purpose looks away type thing? just the older Mom says HI like It's sooo weird and i feel so weird. I did nothing wrong? I don't understand it. I know I shouldn't care but I feel really uncomfortable now.

Was my dh in the wrong, or should I be more understanding?
