I have the most awful MIL - in fact my hubby's parents are very odd people and don't think like most people! My family (parents & bro & auntie/uncle, grandparents) were delighted with our baby and put money into an account for him when he was born. When my hubby's parents came down they bought him a teddy bear and a baby gro plus a few bits like baby lotion. I asked my hubby if that was all they were going to do for their first grandchild and was told "Well they are going to give him some money for Xmas, they can't afford the same as your family," Fair enough? I thought so. However yesterday they could afford to buy a new flatscreen Sony Bravia TV for £400...It makes me MAD! All a matter of priorities... I don't like to go on about it to my hubby because I think he is embarassed by them and they are still his parents after all.
