Re: Letter to Mother-In-Law : too harsh?

I think opening the letter by talking about her menopause sounds aggressive and like you're trying to dismiss her.

All in all I think the letter is.. well.. aggressive. I think you could state your point much more simply by just telling her that you've chosen a name and are sticking with it. I think it is fine to tell her that it hurts your feelings when she makes fun of the name, but this is more of a smack-down than a gentle sharing of your hurt and wish for peace with the name.

I am also a little confused by the letter (I'm sure she won't be since she knows the situation) but I can not tell if you are naming your son Chad or Suasua?
