A 26-year-old woman has 5 children with her ex-husband; the oldest is 8, while the youngest is 2.
Every other weekend, her children spend time with her ex-husband’s parents.
Her kids adore getting to spend time with her ex-in-laws, and her kids always have a great time when they’re over there.
Although that’s all well in good, she has an enormous problem with her former mother-in-law.
“She has a HUGE obsession with the blonde hair and blue-eyed aesthetic, and I feel like she may consider that the beauty standard,” she explained.
“My eldest daughter and son have both of those things, but my 3 other kids, not so much…my twins are blonde with brown eyes, and my youngest daughter has blue eyes and is a brunette.”
“My MIL is a big social media poster and posts my children all the time but mostly my eldest daughter and son. I noticed that, but I just let it go but it really bothered me.”
She then began to notice that every time her former mother-in-law does share photos of her 3 other children who don’t have blonde hair and blue eyes, her former mother-in-law will put filters on the photos.
She decided not to confront her former mother-in-law about this, though, but then when her former mother-in-law started sharing photos of her other 3 children that clearly were photoshopped, she couldn’t stay quiet any longer.
