Would you be irritated?
I haven't been on here in a while.
Right off the bat....just putting it out there..... I am one of the stepmothers on this site who does NOT like her stepchild in any way, shape of form, and has nothing to do with him (SS) . Say what you will about that, as I know I'm well and truly not the only one here. In fact, when SS comes to stay every other weekend, I go and stay at my parents.
However, 3 months ago, my fiancé and I got married. Luckily, SS is now 12, and was admittedly very well behaved all day. (Not that I really paid much attention, I just focused on my own friends and family )
He was well behaved...... Except for the fact that he either glared or scowled at the camera in some of the family photos. Well, sorry, but it's rude to glare or scowl in a photo.
I brought this up with my (new) husband.
His response was this: "Oh my God, I'm not even going to discuss this, this is so petty!"
And then he went on to justify and excuse it, by pointing out other people in some of the group shots where staring at the camera with a serious expression. That's what I call clutching at straws.
What do you think? Bearing in mind, that this is a very much-loved, very well looked after and very well treated child, who has families on both his dads and mums side, who dote on him, spoil him, and take him to their beach houses on a regular basis.
What is there to scowl about?
