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

No, I didn't think you were implying it. I just thought people who didn't remember my IL situation as well might be confused without the background of our particular "golden GCs." Golden Cs and GCs are often insufferable, but not in this case. Mostly, I was just focused on the point you clarified for me (and I clarified for myself as I was writing that response)--my need to "protect" my children on this occasion is really pretty minimal. When SIL's family is involved, the boys generally have a lot of fun, and nobody notices FIL's behavior or even MIL's for that matter.

I wouldn't really be going to protect my kids so much as going to find things to nitpick. Probably not my healthiest choice at the moment.
