My brother in law and his wife are a pain in my rear end. We thought moving to where we live now would make him closer to his brother and it has been the complete opposite. One thing that he has recently done is this: Our five year old is pretty much nonverbal. They have an almost two year old...and all he does when we go around is brag about how much their 2 year old talks more than our five year old. Our son has special needs (autism, rare chromosome disorder, etc.) I try to brush it off, but here is where the post is going...
Their kids birthdays are in January and April, ours are in June and December
We bought both of their kids Christmas presents and birthday presents this past year. They didn't call or acknowledge at all our oldest son's birthday at all, nor our youngest...although his was just this past Thursday and we haven't seen them since...I know money shouldn't be an issue or presents shouldn't be an issue, but they also didn't get our kids Christmas presents last year. Should I stress about getting their kids a birthday and Christmas present this year, or just give up on trying to make peace between us?
He is really rude to me and makes smart a@@ remarks to me all the time. I will be really happy when we move away from them (as bad as that sounds)
Thanks for any advice :)
