Question about sending family pictures

Let me ask you a question.

Does it bother you when you send pictures of your child to your family and they send it out to everyone that they know?

It doesn't bother me usually - but I have been noticing that someone that I do mail them to, does it EVERY time.
The reason I notice this, is cause I get responses back from these people (that I don't know) telling me how cute my kid is.

Well, I know she is cute - but who they heck are you?????

I really want to reply back and ask who they are sometimes.

Not really.

If anything I would be flattered that they took the time to e-mail me and say nice things about my child.

Re: Question about sending family pictures

Thanks - I just think I am a little cranky today and that is why it bothered me.

I guess if I feel that sometimes some of the pictures are personal, I won't mail them out. I just figured its my family - wouldn't they know that.

Whatever - I'll get over it

It did when I didn't realize they were doing it. Now that I know, I make sure not to email some of them.

It would only bother me if I were using the photos for something else - like a holiday card or birthday invite. I don't send those photos out until after the cards are out now.

If you know who it is, limit the photos to the ones you don't mind everyone seeing.Chat Icon

If it was your mom would you be annoyed? I think it's hard for MILs to win either way.

I remember my girlfriend sent the photos for her dd's 1st birthday invite to her mom & her MIL for feedback on what she should use for the invite. I saw a slew of people went into the album, so I asked her "I thought you were sending them to only 2 people. You had over 30 people in your album." She was livid. Her MIL had send them to everyone.
