This is more of a vent than anything. Dh and I have had this reocurring argument about family pictures. We live in a 2 floor condo and noone ever goes in the basement except adult kids when they're home. Obviously, as a mother, I have many nice pictures of MY 4 daughters, but dh has few of his 3 sons. Long story short, DD28 is getting married this year and, for Christmas, gave me a beautiful 8 X 10 engagement picture of her and my future SIL. Dh made me put any pictures on the first floor on an old entertainment center which has been sold and is leaving our home today, so I put them on a table in our living room area. Dh has been gone since Wednesday for work and what does he do the minute he gets home?? He texted me at work when he got home today and said that if pictures weren't "equal" that we'd have NONE on our first floor! UGH I told him to go into any of our neighbors homes (mostly retirees) and you'd see special "life event" pictures of their kids and grandkids on their first floor. I told him to look again...I DID make it fair. I believe it's my DD28's engagement picture he takes issue with because it's an 8 X 10 and bigger than the rest. I know he's jealous of my kids because they're normal and his kids aren't (all have mental issues) and have/do abuse drugs. I told him if his DS31 and his ex were still married, we'd have THEIR wedding picture upstairs also. It's so frustrating to me because I have so many beautiful pictures of my girls I can't display because he doesn't have all the nice pictures I have. Honestly, when it comes to things like this, being married to your kids' other parent is so much easier.
On the other hand, these days, I wish my ex would drop into a hole and disappear....but, THAT'S another story.
Thanks for allowing me to vent. :)
