So my husband is from OS so all his family and friends are over there, I email them to keep them updated with what's going on with DS and send photos to see how's he's growing as his brothers had babies since he moved here and we would have liked the same thing. We were constantly asking for photos but never getting them (we got one from one brother once and it was horrible looked like the lens needed a good wipe or they were in a dust storm). I asked them (for the second time - I asked once before when I was pregnant) for a recent photos of themselves and each individual family group photos because I want to make a book of photos of them all so DS will learn their names and faces. I've had no response and it's really annoying me. I check my email every morning and every night waiting to hear from them and nothing. The last time one of the sister in-laws said she was on it but I never got the photos.
It's really disappointing because although I don't like my MIL I still put in the effort and don't let her know that I don't like her. I could pretend they all don't exist but that's not fair on DH.
With digital cameras and emails theses days it's not hard. I know it's not a case of them not knowing what to do. I know they know what to do coz they know how to post photos of other things on Facebook. I understand if they don't want to put photos on Facebook but I asked for them to be emailed or snail mailed if they'd rather that but nothing.
So frustrated.. I was trying to be nice maybe I should stop the emails with information on what's going on and just wait for them to ask to tell them because they don't seem to care or be interested.
Sorry vent over
