Parents are proud of their kids, we get it. But some parents take it a little too far — and one woman is bravely considering confronting a photo-happy mom on the eve of her child's birthday.
A woman wrote to the people of Reddit for advice on how to deal with her sister-in-law's penchant for waterboarding the fam with 30-minute slideshows every time one of her kids has a birthday. Her question: should she tell her SIL that she's driving everyone nuts?
[A]nd she LOVES to take pictures of them and share the photos with everyone. She also loves to throw large birthday parties for her kids, and she’ll get upset if you don’t make it, because she feels that these are very important family functions. Ok fine.
Every year for each of their birthdays, she’ll put together a slide show of photos with music that usually runs about 20 minutes long. She invites the entire family over for their birthday celebrations, and after everyone arrives she has everyone sit down in front of the tv, and watch a slideshow that consists of only pictures of either son or daughter (depending on whose birthday it is of course.) Each year they have usually ran around 15-20 minutes, but last year each slideshow was almost 30 minutes long.
