Not the reaction we hoped for...

Their response.....who is watching your dogs? We told them a friend would be watching them at our house. Than they said, well we cant go. And we said, why? They said, we cant leave our dogs.
And FI said, that is the excuse you give? That is unacceptable. Someone in the family can watch the dogs. Geez finances could of been a good reason, but the dogs?
So after a very long period of akwardness, they said well we will discuss it later, and look at our finances and get back to you guys.
I was speechless. Absolutely speechless. Especially since this is their only child.

Are they very involved in his life? Is this a total surprise? Ugh...I'm so annoyed for you!

What is crazy is what changed my mind on the whole inviting people was due to a comment his stepmom said. (This is his dad and stepmom we talked to tonight. His mom passed away about 10 years ago.) On Christmas we were talking about the location with some of his family, and his stepmom looked at his dad and said....wouldnt it be wonderful if we could join them in Sanibel. Than looks over at me and says, Sanibel is the first vacation that the three of us took that I felt like we were truly a family.
After she said that, I said to my FI, we have to invite them.
That is why Im so shocked by this reaction!

That reaction was unacceptable. I am sorry you had to sick through that awkward situation. I can't believer you were able to sit quietly, I don't think I could have done it. If I was able to sit without saying anything I think my body language would have said it all.
I would give them a few days, if they don't come around...what can you do. When you are having your first child they will probably be busy washing their hair. HAHA
Everything will work out.
