... wait. Are thank you speeches a thing at showers? Asking for a friend.
You CAN however hate them for doing so. That's the tact I've taken and my ire is usually pretty legit so I've had moderate/good success?
CPR79 said:My MIL confirmed (in the comments of a post of a picture of her cousin's baby that several people (who obviously don't know her very well) assumed it was her grandkid) that she was expecting a grand kid in july, and went so far as to say which of her children it was that was expecting.
Related to thank you gifts, should I give something to MIL and my mom after birth? They are going to be helping out, and MIL is spending her whole 1 week vacation this year staying here with me right after the baby is born. I was thinking I might judge it on just how capable I am (aka how much they end up helping) but idk if it's normal to get gifts. DH is going back to work immediately, so especially MIL will probably be doing a lot.
