It seems like everytime we get a gift for my Dad and Stepmom (ie, xmas, her birthday), my stepmom will make a point of thanking me but not my husband. For instance, I picked up flowers for her because her mom passed away with a card saying that we cared about her and signed it with both of our names, but when she called to say thank you she only addressed her voicemail to me.
I'm definitely the more thoughtful person in our relationship, so I'm always the one buying gifts for birthdays, thank yous, sympathies ect... but I always sign the cards from both my husband and myself and I expect that the thank yous in return to be addressed to both of us. Is thanking only your daughter a typical thing that moms do? Should I not be offended by this behavior or should I say something to them about including my husband or just let the issue go... I'm confused as to why a person wouldn't thank both their daughter and son-in-law... to me it's like they refuse to recognize that he's a part of my life as well as theirs now.
