I don't think they'll ever get the message??? Dh thinks it is good he p***ed her off, there will be backlash but when we ignore it they might start to realise they aren't going to manipulate us the way they want to? Maybe? I just hope the backlash doesn't happen tomorrow... All we can do is be a broken record with out boundaries, until it sinks in and they respect them or they leave us alone as 'lost causes'.
I love that- turds that won't flush. Describes this situation to a 't'.

I have been reading along with your story. Just wanted to know how you went yesterday? I hope it was a lovely relaxing one with no meddling inlaws.

It pretty much went off without a hitch thanks @CakeyMumma! Noone came and saw us while we were home
Now dealing with the forever catch 22, dh is angry and upset that they didn't care enough about dd (or him- not that he is saying that) to text or anything to say Happy Christmas, which feeds back into the cycle of 'why won't they just respect our boundaries so they can have contact....'. The usual 'why don't they love me enough/ care about me enough/ care about my kids enough to stop being selfish and make some kind of effort.'
But I expected that so trying to ride out his mood today!
Thanks for asking xx Hope yours was a great day!!

Glad your day went well, hope your DP feels better soon!

Awwwwww, I feel sorry for your DH more than anything. It must be hard waging war against your own parents just to try to get them to a place where they can have respectful contact with your little family. Especially since this all comes down to some pretty simple and reasonable requests and they have ignored them time and time again.
I'm glad to read that you've stuck to your guns now and that Christmas Day wasn't ruined by drama even if hubby suffered from the sadness of not spending time with his family. This is a big step forward, especially with your new bub's imminent arrival! Hopefully you get through that relatively unscathed, too!
