Ok this is going to be long (sorry if you were misled to think I had a cheeseburger for you), but I thought I would share so that I could get this off my chest and see what ya'll thought.
On Wednesday my husband broke his leg in a softball accident with another player. It's been a long and exhausting week, but he's remained in good spirits and I've been working through my fatigue to help him in any way I can. His mom and stepfather have also been helping out a lot which is greatly appreciated even though we insist that they don't need to. Every week I do a blog post about my pregnancy. The blog was created to updated friends and family about events in our life and milestones with the pregnancy. I finally got to post my Week 21 entry last night and when I finish I always post a link to Facebook so everyone knows there's a new entry to check out.
Sooo... I wake up this morning to quite a lengthy comment on my Facebook post from my husband's grandmother (MIL's mom). She couldn't understand why I didn't thank DH's mom and stepfather in my blog post for all that they have done and goes on to say that our son should know the sacrifices MIL is making. I was just dumbfounded after reading it. I politely commented back that my blog wasn't made to recognize all of the people that helped us on the way, but it is about the events that happen during my pregnancy. Then I get another comment from her saying, "Since the best part of your week mentioned the fun with your mom and sis.. I thought that the worse part of the week would be brightened to know that Jace's Mom and Charlie helped to brighten up that worst part because there was help." Don't know exactly what she was trying to say, but apparently because I mentioned the fun I had with my mom on mother's day, I was supposed to mention a worse part that was made better by them helping us?
So I've resorted to turning her into an acquaintance on Facebook and posting things form here on out for friends except acquaintances. I am starting to hate Facebook more and more. It was so convenient to be able to keep in contact with friends and family (like her) that are far away, but apparently what I'm supposed to be doing is making public shout outs and recognizing everyone for their help constantly so that it's "official". Thanks for sticking it out and making it through that lengthy post.
