My DH's ex wife had a baby girl last summer. We are expecting a girl in April. She has never been  amicable....in fact, she has always been down right mean to me and DH. I am not completely innocent because after Thanksgiving I defended myself with very harsh words. Anyway, she sent a trash bag full of baby clothes. I am so thankful...they are very cute and much needed; however, I am overwhelmed with bitterness because I have trouble excepting anything from her. DH laughs and says" Be the bigger person and write her a thank you note!" 

What in proper etiquette in this situation?

The proper etiquette is to send a thank you note, and move on.

Send a thank you note, she obviously was the first to extend the olive branch and give you these items. She could have just as easily dropped them off at goodwill or a garbage can.

Write a thank you note and be very appreciative. She could have sold them or donated them.

I would thank her. Maybe she's taking the first step to try to have a good relationship with you guys.

Write a thank you note and use this as a way to move past the bitter childish bs.
