Baby shower thank you notes

My DH's sister sent thank you postcards that she expects me to use for baby gifts. I won't even be having the shower for 3 months. She is the type that likes to control everything and tried to take over our house when her family was visiting at Christmas 2 years ago. I didn't ask her to make the postcards or even ask for advice. I was planning on picking my own thank you cards. It's my first and will most likely be my last pregnancy. Do I have to use the postcards she sent?

  • no you dont have to use them make something happen to them so that you can tell her that they got ruined i know that thats a lie but which is worse you being unhappy on one of the important days in your life or her getting her way as what you made it seem again?? your the only one that really knows but i hope that helped
