I'm a midwife as well as a mother. I know the world doesn't revolve around me, and that people generally don't care about baby photos unless they know someone related to them or they are very well taken. I've met more new grandparents that I can count, her behaviour is just not typical of the average grandparent I meet. She is a lovely person, she is just not a baby person. No craft group and no other photos of the baby. She is not the worst Grandparent in the world and our baby is beautiful. I found the situation amusing and strange, which makes a perfect submission to FML, so I submitted it! Her reasoning behind it is she didn't want to look like she was showing off her work. The comment section of her Facebook was very amusing to read, almost as amusing as this one, so thanks for the laughs.

She's proud about the blanket - let her be. It sounds like she worked hard on it and wants to show what she did. You have to remember that the world doesn't revolve around you and your baby - everyone else has their own life and interests. I'm sure she probably has other pictures of your baby (posted on fb or not) so I just don't see the big deal here.

The blanket was probably more important to her

It's possible she wanted to show it off specifically to a group of crafty friends who aren't very baby loving. It's just Facebook - if she's a loving grandmother otherwise, it doesn't matter. A lot of people get very uppity a website.

there's a reason why you block your mother in laws on facebook!

Probably because she was posting a picture of the blanket... not the baby. Perhaps it was to her sewing circle who wanted to see the finished product, who knows.

If she "just wanted to show the blanket" then why would she crop the baby out? There was no reason other than the fact that she cared about people seeing the blanket

I have some friends that don't like posting pictures of their children on the Internet. It happens. Maybe someone asked specifically about it, so she chose to just highlight the blanket. It doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me, but without context, it's hard to say.

....Exactly. She wanted to show off the blanket not the baby. That was the whole point of cropping the baby out, because not everything is about the baby. Just because she's a Grandmother that doesn't mean that she can't be proud of other things and showcase her accomplishments without talking about the baby.

Maybe she was posting the picture in a public group and didn't want to put the baby out there for anyone and everyone to see? And it says almost completely. Maybe she just cropped off the baby's body or something and left it's head in the picture so it focused on the blanket. There are lots of reasons for this. And not selfish ones. Let the woman be. The person who immediately thinks this is personal and vengeful to them is the one with the personality I question. Not everything is about you.

It's great that she wants to show off the blanket, and I agree with you, the world doesn't revolve around her, HOWEVER, it is fucked up how she cropped her first grandchild out so I do see the problem with this one

Some people just don't have their priorities straight, I'm sorry OP
