Would this hurt your feelings?

My sister in law (my brother's wife of 25 years) is constantly taking my sister's child to fun places and posting pictures all over facebook. My brother and sister in law have 2 boys. My daughter is  the same age as my niece but she never offers to take her anywhere. I don't care that she takes my niece because I'm sure she has a good reason but I hate that she posts these pictures. She takes her to movies, amusement parks, etc. My kids see these pictures and always asks why their aunt doesn't take them. I have asked my sister in law and she said it is because she feels like my sister doesn't do anything fun with my niece so she does it instead. I don't have the time or money to do anything with my kids, either. Like I said, I am happy my niece gets to go have fun but I am tired of seeing it every day.

 Not really, because you have more than one kid and there is only one niece, in the long run it is cheaper for her to just take the one child instead of 2-3 Plus her own

Yes. I hate seeing one child favored so blatantly. I would be honest with her and explain how it hurts your child's feelings. she doesn't have to take your children out as well, but if she doesn't then I just proves that it has nothing to do with the other child mother. It has to do with the fact that the aunt avors one child

No.

Sometimes you're just really close to someone and want to be with them. For whatever reason she doesn't feel that bond with your child. Maybe try bonding a little more.

I have one niece that I spend far more time with them the others. I'm just really connected to her. If that hurts someones feeling s then thats silly.
