I never thought I'd see myself on these boards about in-laws but here I am.
My son is in the army, got married a year ago, had a beautiful baby girl 3 mos ago. I never met his wife in person as we live 3000 mi. from each other but we'd text, email and chat on the phone on occasion. After the baby was born, my son would send me pics and she would send me pics too because I told them I'd make them a scrapbook and also for me to have. I finally went to visit 3 wks ago. It wasn't what I had hoped it to be and I chalked it up to my DIL just trying to adjust to being a new mom or maybe post partum. She's not working yet and still gets up in the middle of the night. Anyway, she sent me her latest batch of photos 3 days ago. This is my first grandchild so I am beyond excited and I share pics on facebook for my friends to go "ooooh" and "ahhhh" over.
Yesterday my son sent a text saying my DIL feels uneasy about the pics of my grandchild where she has no top on. In one pic, she is covered by a sheet lying on her side. Her arm, shoulder and neck are bare. The other one is of her pushing herself up on her forearms. It's a side shot and you can see her arm and her back are bare. I was shocked as I NEVER ever had any bad thoughts about someone stealing the pics, etc. She called me after the text and said she's nervous about sickos getting pics of innocent children. I told her I understand her concern and that I would delete them. I deleted the pics...but then felt bad about the whole thing.
Was I wrong to post the pics?
