So I know I'm 33 years old and should be well past the age of giving a crap if my parents play favorites between me and my sister, but I can't help myself. My brother-in-law and I both post photos of our kids a lot...he might do this more than me, but not by much. And my father shares the photos posted of my niece and nephew about 75% of the time...and he shares about 5% of the photos I post of my kids.
Not to brag, but I have some pretty darn cute kids...so what the H, Dad? Why do you like my sister's kids better than mine?? Luckily there's about a 1% chance he'll ever read this blog...and about a 0.01% chance he's ever read any blog, so I'm confident I won't get in trouble for this post. My sister might stumble upon it someday accidentally, but I seriously doubt it...and if she does, oh well, whatever, go right ahead and tell on me.
Either way, I can't keep quiet about this anymore...I bitch about it to my husband every time I see one of my dad's "isn't she adorable" photo shares of May...but what am I supposed to do? Confront my dad?
"Why don't you think my photos of Jane hiking in the beautiful Rocky Mountains are share worthy Dad?"
He'd either start sharing my kids' photos out of pity, or stop sharing the photos he really wants to share of my niece and nephew, again, out of pity. So it's a lose, lose...it is what it is.
