I know this is a bit petty but I just want to get it out. I love my In-Laws to bits. But every year since I have been with my DH I've always made the effort and gotten them presents for every occasion, without ever getting or expecting anything in return. So this Christmas was no exception. But somehow I had the idea that now we have DS they might have gotten us something little for him as we always buy for our nieces and nephew, MIL, SILs and BILs. But nothing! I get that Christmas can be a strain on the budget but not even a card? Even if they gave us a card I would have been happy, it means that they thought of us and DS. I guess it's just feeling neglected more than anything.
This is on top of the fact that MIL never got us anything for the birth of DS despite buying quite a few gifts for the wife of the guy she is having an affair with new baby (she claimed that we had everything we could possibly need)
I hate the idea of the kids missing out from us but at the same time I don't want to get them anything next year on principal.
