Re: So on the theme of avoidance versus polite contact....

Yeah, and actually, with SIL and the whole family there, not much interference will be needed anyway. In a crowd when lots of bustling is going on (and when the big cousins are playing with their little cousins, there's lots of bustle) he just sits on the sofa looking sour because it's too chaotic for him to carry on a conversation--and no one cares or pays attention. And the kids will be pretty entranced with their cousins. I'm really needed much less than if it was just the ILs.

They may be the Golden GCs but they are actually perfectly nice kids. They are not spoiled or anything by being "golden." It's not their fault at all.
