My IL's have done lots of "nice" things. But it's like selling your soul to the devil with them, they do something nice, even a birthday gift, and they expect it 1000 times back and when they don't get it, they throw it in your face.

Nicest? She said she found this really nice bowl set, showed it to me, said she wanted to buy three of them since she has 3 DIL's (one is 2000 miles away, two of us are here) and because there was only 2 sets she bought it for herself. No surprise from that woman. They look like old lady bowls anyways, so I guess in that way it was nice of her lol

Except mine don't expect it back but lord it over you and mention it over and over again.

But the nicest thing was that they helped us so that we could put down a larger downpayment on our house. DH told me that they gave us the money. MIL made a point of telling me afterwards that it was a loan.

MIL and SIL bought the mattress for Katie's crib (which we aren't using anymore since my DD discovered co-sleeping).
