Since I don't get along with my BIL & his wife, I just try no to talk to them. It seems every time they open their mouth it is to judge my DH or me.

DH and I have an agreement that we spend every other Thanksgiving with my or his family, this year it's his turn But Christmas gets more difficult. Christmas Eve my family has a big party, so we go to that because his family doesn't do anything. But then on Christmas day, his family thinks we have to spend ALL DAY with them, and that is crap. I want to be able to see my family ON Christmas too, not spend 12 hours with his family. This year will be our first Christmas with our son, so we will do what is best for him. I want him to have a wonderful time, not be caught up in drama from my inlaws.

Well before I was pregnant I smoked, so dh and I would just use that as an excuse to run outside away from whoever it was that was annoying us.

Since being pregnant, I just raise my eyebrows at whatever they say and smile like they are idiots. Pretty funny actually....I then proceed to walk away.

Since that thanksgiving insident Robert lets me avoid them pretty much for the holidays. Now that we will have a baby in the picture we have to sit down and have a HUGE talk about that. I'm not going to go someplace where i'm not wanted and feel very uncomfortable. And I'll be ######ed if my son grows up listening to them bad mouth me!!!

Get it and get out. One good thing about having holidays at the inlaws house is that it is easier to get away when we have had enough. Much easier to say goodbye and leave than it is to throw them out the door of our house.
