Who's crazy here?! *UPDATE*

SO I had this elaborate gift planned for the in-laws. I was going to make a wall hanging with family photos (transferring the photos onto the wood), an entire collage, then paint a family saying over it. I've had it planned for months...I've just been waiting on the arrival of our niece. SIL said we could use whatever photos we wanted from FB and she'd give me pics of the baby ASAP. Christmas is next week, so I called about pictures. She decides that I'm not allowed to give any gift with her baby's photo on it because she wants to be the first to give out any photo, and I somewhat understand because it is her kid and not mine. Ok...why not tell me that in the first place and also...it's a friggin picture! And not just a single pic of her baby...but a family collage. I just want to ask her why she's so crazy about a photo.  

UPDATE-So fast forward to this past Christmas.  I have a newborn, born in November. What does SIL give the inlaws for Christmas?! A pic of my baby. Without even asking me. We also gave a picture but of course the inlaws opened hers first and they cried. Their reaction to our gift was just "look, we got two now!"

why wouldn't she want the baby's picture on it? Gosh now when you give it you'll be a selfish bitch for not including hers!

I'm not even making it because I don't want to exclude the baby, you know?

Meh...just do it without her pictures. She will feel stupid when her baby is the only one not in the collage.

Sensitive people piss me off. She has no validity to her point.
Your idea sounds beautiful and so thoughtful.
And one person can just mess it up. She has noooo point to her thoughts on it. Of she wants to exclude her baby, fine.
But your idea is so nice I really think you should still do it.

I could understand her logic if I was just wrapping up a pic of her kid and gifting it...but it's a family collage...with everyone.

Lol here's the funny thing...she hasn't posted any because she was afraid I'd use them without her permission.
