Yesterday, my MIL sent us $60 worth of Babies r us gift cards in the mail. WIth that was a note that she hopes the baby comes early or late since she has a trip planned during our due date.

We are not as close to his mom as I would like to be, but we in no way have any ill feelings towards each other. What should I do? I feel like if I don't at least say something to her (nicely) it will fester forever in my head. But on the other hand, I don't want to cause any family rif's
