Have always had issues with my sil but thought they were just directed at me. Apparently not.
So we've just had our xmas get together and drove five hours to get there. Unfortunately my dd 19 months was quite ill. So ill in fact she slept the whole day so didn't get to open her presents. So we get home and give them to her only to find sil hasn't given her anything. Now this happened for her birthday as well but we thought she may have just forgotten as her engagement party was the same day as DDS birthday party. Last year when dd was 7 months she was very overwhelmed at xmas and didn't know how to open presents so we opened them with her making sure to thank everyone for their gifts. However I overheard sil say dd didn't even appreciate her gift so she wasn't getting her any more. Sil lives on facebook and is always putting pictures on of gifts she gets for her friends son the same age.
So do I have a right to be angry. I'm 16 Weeks pregnant so maybe I'm just being hormonal.
DD doesn't understand yet but what happens when she does how do you explain to her that sil hates mum so won't buy her presents.
Should we be addressing this issue now knowing that sil holds grudges and the relationship is rocky at the best of times or just let it go or be as childish as she is and give her nothing for her wedding present so she knows what it feels like.
