You are absolutely right. I am being way too emotional. And yes I agree my reaction was a bit out of proportion. Guess I am tired of being a ying-yang situation. You know what - your question got me thinking? Why I am being so overly reactive to this situation of DH calling me by an accident where in true sense it was a call for my MIL. Perhaps some background can help? 1. I have been doing volunteering as I mentioned before. DH never participates in those events. Even if its kid oriented event, where it involves our own kids. Or even school events. He tries to avoid these events as much as possible as he believe I am better of taking the kids and he in the meantime can work on a more useful thing. I respect his decision and never pull him into it cause its his choice. All these years he has never participated; and I see him all of a sudden taking interest now that ILs are here, cause he feels they will connect to these events. 2. DH calls MIL everyday. Even when they were back in India. I know comparing that with me is evilsome, but I never get a call from him. I do text him once a while, but he doesn't. He is not a social person according to him and I have come to terms with it by now. Every once in a while I wfh- and he'll call them and even though I am around; he doesn't have a courtesy to talk to me directly. There have been occasions he has asked his parents to pass on the message to me. I feel kids and I are second priority to him compared to his own parents. Sorry to draw that visual, but that's how I felt when he said that call was a mistake yesterday.
