I commented on a post about the same topic a few weeks ago and I kind of forgot about it until now. I just saw my nephew who is 2 1/2 and I was addressed by my first name many times (even by my SIL). My husband and I were dating for about 4 years (already living together) and I was in my SIL's wedding before my nephew was born, so it's not like I'm "new" to the family even though we haven't been married long.
My SIL and BIL rarely refer to us as aunt and uncle. My MIL and FIL never do. Ever since he's been talking, we have always been called my our first names. I thought maybe he would learn the aunt and uncle thing as he got older, but he hasn't. I think it's permanent now and I do not like it.
A few of my friends suggested that I talk to my SIL and tell her how I feel. I'm not that comfortable around her yet and I'm not big on confrontation. They also suggested correcting him in front of my SIL or BIL so they understand how I feel, but that would be even harder for me to do. I know it's natural because they are mother and daughter, but I feel like my MIL and SIL are cliquey and I feel like this might become a bigger issue.
I personally would like my DH to talk to his sister about it, but it doesn't seem to bother him as much.
How would you handle this issue?
**I forgot to mention that my SIL and BIL had a new baby. I don't want this to be the way with the new baby too.
