Are you annoyed because of her sharing photos of your DS or are you annoyed at the fakeness of her statements on FB?
Cant you block her on fb?
I would find that bothersome. It's like she's faking that she's the involved, loving grandmother, which is all an act for the facebook crowd.
I'm sure she does actually love your DS and care about him, it's just a shame she fails to show it through her actions.
The only way around it would be for you to ask your DP to hide his posts from her that contain photos of your DS, though I'm guessing he wouldn't be okay with this request?
She also uses her husbands Facebook to look at mine and honestly I couldn't care less if she looks at my Facebook, she sees what she's missing.
She always hassled me when I was pregnant, u can and u can't do this. All her bs probably adds to it annoying me but he's our son if it bothers me I should be allowed to feel that way, right?
Oh I have no doubt that she loves DS. No doubt whatsoever. Just she has put herself in this position, she misses out because she stuffed up. She wasn't around when he was born because her and Dp got into an argument about her drinking when I was nearly 8 months pregnant. She invited herself to stay at our house 2 weeks before DS due date and 2 weeks after and also said she would in the delivery room so when she kept going on I snapped.
I wish he would agree to that, he said I shouldn't have a problem with it. That I'm over reacting. I've told him it's because she pretends to be a fake grandparent to look good to everyone and he reckons just let her, we know the truth (which I agree with) but it bothers me that she uses DS to make herself seem amazing.
That would do my head in too.
I had an Aunt of my DH share an entire Album on another Aunt's page!
Who does that?
More importantly, WHY is that even an option?
Anyway, I've since limited who can see what.
I made a list for close family & friends only and post most of my pics in there.
Your DH should cut her off.
She won't miss what she doesn't know is there.
The sharing of photos would concern me. Can you get your dp to change his privacy settings so mil can still see the pics but can't share them or "friends of friends" can't see them?
Yes I think your reaction is OTT.
Your H is putting pics up that she can see and share, so she is.
If it's a problem for you, ask your H to make sure they can't be seen by her, or shared. Or just don't put pics online.
Also, I don't think it was out of the blue, or a "no idea why" situation that she turned on you- to me, she felt judged by you (rightly so).
