Not really...but they might as well have forgotten. We i was pregnant, so was DH's sister and cousin. His cousin's baby was born 1 month before, then my baby, and then sisters baby. We moved out of state when DD was 6 months old. I knew his sisters baby would obviously get more attention because he was right there with their family...But on Christmas...not one call. not one present. Nothing. Her first birthday...his mom called. No presents. I can post a photo on FB and not one of his side likes, or comments on it. She can post a photo of her son sleeping, and then post another picture of almost the same exact thing 2 minutes later, and they will both have 10 likes...Almost all from DH's family.
It just annoys the hell out of me. How hard is it to call on her birthday? Sure, shes too little to understand but its atleast the thought that counts. And they can't even use the excuse "your too far away" because his cousin moved to New York and they are in North Dakota. I'm in Montana...I'm a hell of a lot closer then she is but on her sons first christmas...MIL sent him a full size kitchen set, $100 in clothes and a table and chair set. She even set DH cousin's fiance a birthday present. I don't know what SIL's son got but i'm sure he got flooded with presents.
Its not that i want presents for DD...Shes got plenty. She has my family up here. She doesn't NEED them...But would a phone call really hurt them? Or atleast saying hi once in a while? MIL calls once a week, otherwise we have to call her and the rest of his family has pretty much just disowned us because we moved out of state. Before we moved out of state, we all got along fine.
Vent over. I'm sure someone on here will tell me i'm being selfish and greedy...but like i said...When DD gets older...Shes not going to know them if they don't even attempt to be in her life. She use to skype with MIL and would get excited when she saw her...Now she acts like she doesn't even recognize her because his mom won't skype anymore "Her webcam is broke" but on IM it says "Margaret is Video Chatting with Tay" which is DH's other sister.
Do you just say whatever and go on with life up here...and when shes older and wants nothing to do with them throw it in their face then..Or say something to MIL about it now?
