OK, just sharing cause this is kind of funny. SIL/MIL/FIL and I/DH and sons do not have a relationship any longer. For the past months (since only one incident in February) and nothing over six months prior to that, all has been quiet and nice and my life is peaceful. Youngest son's bday was yesterday and in the mail is this card with no return address.
I told MIL/FIL that they were not allowed to come to our house or send anything ever. And, they've adhered to that. While I never said my SIL couldn't - I really didn't have an issue with her and her family it was her choice to side with the MIL/FIL etc and she made it clear how she stood. She still thinks I'm in some way going to let my son visit her and her family when she wants nothing to do with me or her brother. It doesn't bother me that she wants to send a card - that's her choice. It's just funny that she must have thought it would get by me and to my son without her address on it. Duuuuhhhhhhh.
I gave it to him right away, but knowing it was likely from them. Some people are just so stupid. My point to her is simple: if you want to have a relationship with our son and our family we welcome it - but it is under our rules and we come together as a family. Divide and conquer may be how their family operates but it is not how my family operates.
I'm thinking about having son send the thank you to them (as he would for anyone who gave him a gift) and not put a return label on it. She'll probably not get the point, but I digress.
