I posted this picture on my facebook to my mother in law talking about house decor:

Said I'd like to do it on a smaller scale and that my dh I could do it.

Everybody was talking about they liked the idea too...on a smaller scale. My mil said:

Yes, that is nice, but when your children are teenagers they might not like it.


I said I don't think my kids would have a problem with it. They love pictures of themselves as babies. I wouldn't put naked baby pics. They love even funny, silly baby pictures.


 my son is 13. I don't think a teen would have a problem with it. They love being the center of attention. LOL.  I wanted to say but didn't: Well if they don't like it, too bad, our house I get to decorate like I want to". LOL

Why would a teen have issues with a cute baby picture that also showed their birthdate etc. Now I would not want it to take up a whole wall. I'd do it on a much smaller scale. 

She is always telling me that my girls are the ones who are going to give me problems cause all girls are trouble and my son will just be moody some. Yes, he is her favorite. She is all down on girls and how horrid they are as teens.  Ugh..she is so weird sometimes.  She thinks everyone thinks the way she does. LOL

Me too. I want to do it on a smaller scale because we have 3 kids and I don't think we have a wall big enough to go large scale. LOL

Pfft I dont care if the kids like it or not. They can pick the decorations when they have their own house.

No disrespect to your mil, but IMO, it's your house. Why would it matter if it's your home that you're kids as teens won't like it? 

We're you planning on doing that in their rooms? If not, then I don't see the issue. 

If the kids don't like it, they don't have to look at it. (that's what I'd tell mine. LOL)

Tell the mother-in-law to take a leap.

 Maybe she meant the whole mushy sentiment thing would embarrass them when they got to be teenagers..??  But oh well... Where's the joy in parenting a teenager if you can't embarrass them a little???  LOL   Besides, I think they secretly like it, just are too cool to fess up...
