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.

  • It is astounding to me she would suggest otherwise! A family = parents and their kids, ALL their kids.

  • Hugs feral! Send the pic of all of you. She doesn't get to dictate what family is.

  • I know, Kmath- right?

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

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

    That's very rude and hurtful.

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

  • 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!!
