    Default The in laws. Vent... Very angry

    My partner and I separated now were back together. My parents have forgiven DP an accepted where back together. His however havnt. We live in qld and my family lives in Perth so I'm pretty much alone most of the time with our kids while DP works. His side havnt said I word to me or made a effort to see the kids. My DP has to bring the kids to them. My DD last week almost ended up in hospital due to being sick but still didn't here anything. I think DP spoke to them but that's it.
    Mothers day is tomorrow and I think his mum is expecting the kids to go round there my DP. Guess I'll just stay home alone on mothers day.
    I got her a new phone cover last week in her Fav colour. DP got a txt thanking him for buying it fr her.
    Non of them wanna add me on fb.
    I am just getting ****ed off. They need to act like adults and get the hell over it. The love of my life and I are over it. My parents and sister are over it. If they expect me to be left at home on special occasions such as mothers day or christmas or Easter (again) they have another thing coming.

    I'd keep you kids with you tomorrow. It's your mothers day to! Your MIL will be seeing her children so you should get to be with yours.

    I am in agreement with what's been said so far.
    Firstly hugs to you. I'm glad you are both happy-that's the important thing.

    I think your dp does need to say something...
    As for mothers day...
    They are YOUR kids, they should be with YOU!

    As for mothers day have him call his mum today and tell her that if you are not invites then the kids are not going either.

    As hard as it will probably be, try not to think about it too much and just enjoy YOUR mother's day!

    Absolutely this!

    Your DP HAS to talk to his Mother, the way she is acting it not on! He needs to stand up for you.

    I would be keeping your kids home with you. Mothers day is one day of the year I don't have to argue with DH about the kids going down to my evil MIL's as it is m day not hers and my MIL will talk to me, its more that I don't want to see her on my day, bc its torcher. You husband really needs to stand up to his family!!

    I agree, tell her to stick it, they're your babies! If she wants to grow up and act like a family, family will visit!
    Just cos old ppl feel the world owes them, doesn't necessarily mean it's true!!
    Live n let live man!!

    I agree with other posters - your babies; your mother's day! Ask DP to go and visit with her a while and you can enjoy your day feeling loved and special.
