    This thread is hilarious! So many crazy people out there (lots of crazy nurses). I agree with the kill her with kindness approach. It is much more fun to be passive aggressive anyhow!

    p.s. is it juts me or does anyone else think its kinda deranged for someone to gift a cashmere teddy bear to an infant? i mean, all babies do is eat, puke and poop, so if you actually let your kid touch it, it would be ruined in 2 seconds!

        It is crazy. It was all kind of excessive in my opinion. It's really nice stuff, but stuff I soooooo would not buy because I'd get a little irked the minute Aiden spits up on it or something.

          Now, when he spits up on it, or ruins the cashmere bear, it will be pretty funny to you. You get to have all this great fancy stuff that you did not pay for that you also don't care if he ruins, sounds pretty perfect to me.

          I hope you made sure to sign your name on the note, I think that is perfect.

            I say keep the expensive gifts, and send a thank you note. I would sign your name first on the card.

              Jessica, I would be seriously pissed. I think that because of my past I'm a little sensitive to extra attention being paid to my man, but regardless I think this is a little over the top. I'm glad you decided to keep the gifts. Now, you just need to drive the point home that you're the MOTHER and the WIFE! Sign the note something like "Aiden, Jessica, and Jessica's husband Brian"... I hope she gets the point. I totally think she was trying to make a dig at you by excluding you off the card... unbelievably bold and tacky imo. Bitch. Skank.

                Well I was going to suggest that you title the thread "Gifts from a Psycho-hose Beast" (hahah....Wayne's World anyone...? )

                But yeah, I think that was ALL a bit much...and I would have been irritated about being obviously, deliberately left off the card too! Honestly, even if I'm not sure of the spouse's name, spelling whatever...I just address things to The Smith Family...or whatever. There's no excuse for leaving you name off the card.

                It sounds like you went the classy route with your response to her. I think Miss Manners would be proud. :-)
