[ - ] S/o Bubbie and Zaydie post. I am not Jewish and DH is. Our kids are not being raised strongly in either religion (we celebrate in a very secular sense major Jewish and Christian holidays. I feel like his parents take every opportunity to perceive a slight against Judiasm if our kids aren't familiar with some Jewish tradition (such as Purim) and try to indoctrinate our kids with Jewish teachings (they were here this weekend, and left a book on Passover as well as a bunch of matzah) 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] s/o on Bubbie and Zaydie post. To those posters who thought that the nicknames were an affectation - MIL wants db to call her a foreign name for grandmother, but she doesn't speak the language at all and is 2nd generation. The grandfather in this case is not of the same heritage and will be Grandpa. DH originally thought it was a bit much (although he called his own grandmother by this name, but she spoke the language fluently) but relented. I do think this is an affectation, but maybe I am in the wrong? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
