This is me pounding my head against the wall...

SO's mom has asked for a family pic.
So I said I could get her one of SO and Baby.
She said, "No, family- you, him and baby"

Well, not to borrow trouble but to me, family includes ALL the kids.

It begins- ugh.

  • Ugh, I hate families during the holiday.....

    I moved, that solved everything. Now, m-avi only worries about her immediate family. If brothers and such want to visit me, they know where I am.

    that's sad, I think maybe she was trying to be kind by including you in it, and perhaps she is having a hard time bonding with the other kids b/c they live far away? Idk, I would be hurt too. My MIL from day one has included my kids like they were always part of her family to begin with. Good luck!

  • I just wouldn't send her a picture at all. She knows what you guys look like.

  • Nah- you're fine.
    Like I said- we're flexible- don't expect nor will bitch if she only buys for baby cause she's related to him and the kids do have grands that will take care of them.
    It was just the family comment- grrrrr!!

  • Oh, well, I guess you didn't say anything about holidays... but I associate family photo with holiday. Sorry, my bad.

  • I would do what the others suggested. A family picture is that of a FAMILY!

    That's very rude and hurtful.

  • I know, Kmath- right?

    I was willing to be flexible but that really rubbed me the wrong way
