Niece announces she's pregnant. Who should I congratulate?
My niece (my sister's daughter) announced via email 2 days ago that she is pregnant and expecting a boy in Sept. I immediately sent my congratulations to my niece. Now my sister's feelings are hurt because I didn't congratulate her. I do speak with my sister via phone about every 2 weeks (she lives 2000 miles away) and I definitely would have brought up the exciting news when we talked.
This is the first pregnancy of my nieces/nephews and my mother's first great grandchild. I don't know if this makes any difference but I haven't called my mother either to congratulate her.
Can you tell me what I should have done so that I get it right the next time? (I have 10 nieces and nephews).
