Family baby shower

My MIL is throwing my husbands brother and his wife a baby shower but did not have one for us. In fact, when my family threw us a baby shower she told everyone she thought it was a bad idea and bad timing. When my shower did happen she arrived with a chip on her shoulder and did not want to participate. Afterwards she was upset because she did not participate and she looked bad infront of other family members. How am I supposed to feel now that she wants to throw my husbands brothers family a shower and sends an invitation calling it “OUR FAMILY SHOWER”.

have fun for you

by: stef

Don’t let her get to you. Having a baby is a wonderful thing so go and enjoy yourself for you. Also try to have fun and show your support for your sister-in-law. After all that is who the shower is really for. I know it’s tough when MIL’s don’t show the same support for you as they do their daughter’s TRUST me. But I’ve learned to realize I can’t control her actions and I will just do my best to enjoy myself and support my sister-in-law. Especially if you have a good relationship with her. One way to make a statement you could get her a super cute gift too so that ;you are the talk of the shower. Or you could make her something special that she will love and remember maybe even more than the shower itself.

Don’t let her get to you

I would feel bad about this too. It sounds like your brother-in-law’s child is definitely being favored.

It’s easier said than done, but I would be the bigger person. Don’t act the way she did at your shower. Go to the shower, have fun, and be happy for them. Don’t let your MIL get to you.

After the shower, talk to her and tell her how you feel. The both of you will feel better once you air you feelings out.
