I got a suprize in the mail today

SOs mom sent me a birthday card. She signed it Love, Mom

I have never met her. She lives on the other side of the country. I've spoken to her through an e-mail once. He doesn't even talk to her all that much, and they were never close.

We've been dating for almost 10 months. We do live together though.

She didn't ask him when my birthday is or anything about my personality (the card she picked fits me perfectly). 

I'm shocked and plesently suprised that she sent me a card. I just think it's kinda weird that she signed it love mom. He didn't even get a card on his birthday from her!

Doubt this comes from a place of love, likely a bit of cyber stalking and passive aggresive intentions.

huh? I never said anything about a relationship of all these years. and actually I've known him for 10 years, but we just started dating 10 months ago. And I am happy she's making an effort. It just suprized me that she signed it Love, Mom....where I've never met her, or even spoken to her really. It would be different if her and I were close or SO and I were dating forever.

Maybe she's trying to make a good impression. My MIL sent us a Christmas/birthday card filled with money(my birthday is dec. 27 and my daughters is dec 28). That wouldn't have surprised me except she sent me 300 for birthday, 200 for christmas, 200 for daughter and 75 for my husband. My BIL only got 75 to split between him and his daughter. My husband and my brother in law were both like pretty damn jelly. hahaha

 you might not have mailed one for her birthday, but you should remember some kind of card for mother's day.

she hasn't had a birthday yet. I already planned on getting 4 mothers day cards. One for my mom, one for my EX mil (we were close and still talk all the time), one for SOs grandma (who is like a mother to him, and who I adore!), and one for his mom.
