Andddd now the blow up has happened.
So after all the events of the previous blogs, MIL sends this message via FILs phone to DH:
"Hi, DH we have a card for SD, would be nice to get it to her before her birthday."
DH responds, obviously pissed because its 100% clear now that only SDs birthday matters to them and that MIL was trying to manipulate YDS birthday into being about SD:
"Have you considered the mail?"
FIL: "In person would be better"
DH: "MDS and YDS didnt get theirs in person or on time, what's going on?"
I can't believe they're still pushing it after we already told them twice that this weekend doesn't work, just because MIL HAS to throw her stupid party for SD.
To be continued ...
Update: FIL replied with a couple more texts. He gave the same BS excuses about why they weren't at the other kids birthday as before and then said "we want to be on time for one of your kids' birthdays, it sucks missing them. DH ignored it and then he sent another one whining about how we're always too busy for them and all they want to do is drop off a card. Didnt ask what we are doing or anything - its 4th of July weekend, how do they know if we will even be home? And they said they always try to stop by when they are in town (only when SD is there) but we're usually busy. That's happened once. But I guess their schedules are the only ones that matter, right?
