My inlaws are crappy!!! I dont just mean my mil or fil I mean the WHOLE lot. Grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins etc.
I give them a bit of credit because apart from mil they live over east, so I dont expect regular visits or anything. But they dont even call! We get cards for birthdays and xmas.... WHOOPEE!! The biggest effort they have made is when two aunts, fil and grandparents came for our wedding and spent TWO days. That was over two years ago. None have seen dd except on fb photos which I only upload for their benefit. When dd was born fil had a two minute convo with dh and his nan rang his mum to congratulate us.
Well I thought we would extend the olive branch to mil and invite them for easter. We haven't seen them since xmas when we went to them. They were meant to come down and bring our xmas presents from them because we dont have a tow ball on our car. It was an outdoor setting and a sandpit. We still dont have those.
Well got a txt this morning. They aren't coming.
They didn't come for dds first birthday, which they only gave notice the night before. The reason was oh we are so tired from our melbourne/ hamilton island holiday. And last time they said they were coming they called the night before and said they couldn't because the car needed a service. THE REAL REASON WAS THEY WANTED TO GO TO BUSSELTON TO USE THEIR FRIENDS BOAT INSTEAD.
I just can't get over how selfish and rude they behave!
I always wanted a united, loving extended family for my kids, doesn't look like thats gonna happen.
OOOHHH... INTERNET FIGHT. WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO? CAPS LOCK ME TOO DEATH?
