Another Easter Update

My DH and I sat down and had a chat last night and this morning. He believes, like some here, that I should provide my own food since I am gluten free and they are not. I pointed out to him that my vegetarian family bought a $100 prime rib and prepared it for him on Christmas, plus they made a separate batch of garlic mashed potatoes because he likes his made with chicken stock. And I would never tolerate them not asking him to bring his own food. And his is just a food preference, not a medical requirement. He said he would sleep on my points and we would talk in the morning. We just had a talk and came to a compromise. We will attend Easter with his parents for dessert only. The morning will be at home with our kids and dinner will be with my family. I just called them and they are rushing out to buy a ham for Jason. I felt like saying ..... "no, he can bring his own plate." BTW, dessert at his parents will not be anything I can eat so I have to bring my own dessert. They will still be giving our foster the basket we provided, but my family has run out and bought her a ton of things.

Your husband and his family sound like jerks. I'm truly sorry. I hope you have a good Easter despite all that crap.

You're a better person then I am, I would have cancalled on the inlaws altoghter.  To be honest if my husband acted like that, I would have told him to go to his parents for Easter.  

I am a firm believer if you invite someon over for whatever reason and you are feeding them, part of being a good host is making sure you have food to feed everyone you invited, special diets or not.

Try to have nice Easter despite everything!!!

I think it's a good compromise but his family are still a bunch off assholes.

I'm glad that you guys figured something out. You're a better person than I cause I would just give the foster child the basket and the inlaws could swivel. I'm a firm believer that unless it's a potluck the host makes sure that there's food that everyone can eat.

Actually my mother might exlax his food. In the 13 years I have been married I never told her they do not feed me until now. She is livid at my in laws and Jason for allowing it.

It definitely sounds like your families are worlds apart in there level of consideration.

Well I am glad that a compromise (ummm sorta) was reached. However for DH to allow his mother to treat you like poopoo is a serious problem.
I hope despite everything that is going on that you have a wonderful Easter and enjoy your foster daughter :)
