Pictures of SD's BM in our home

Should my the pictures of my 11 year-old SD's BM be in our home? I didn't mind initially till the BM started using my SD to sneak in her (the BM's) bikini pictures and pictures of her extended family into our home. She has no pictures of her dad in the BM's home. My SD and I are really close. She tells me that her BM told her to bring those pictures of her (the BM on her graduation, in bikinis) and put them there. My husband gave my SD pictures of himself and the BM returned them. Yet she keeps sending her pictures here.

What can I do?

Peti, it's not necessarily the rule, but when you have an original post (OP) that has been responded to, and then you change that original post, sometimes the change makes the responses completely nonsensical ;-). In your post, it wasn't too bad, because you did leave the essence of the original post, but you'll know when you run across one of the other ones...LOL...some go in and completely change the OP!

As far as this site, it's a great one. I've made many friends from all over, and we all have a lot to share

Shawn,

Thanks for taking time out to tell me what you think. Firstly, this is my second day (less than 24 hours) on the blog so I don't know all the rules. I apologize for irritating you by not adding, "edited to add" to my post. I hope you can forgive me. Thanks for your advice.
I hope with time, I can support other women without coming across as harsh.

Firstly, I think that people who change their original post without indicating "Edited to add"...are irritating!

If your SD does not want to display the pictures in your home, that is HER choice, as they are pictures of HER mother. Likewise, if she wants to display pictures of her father in her room at her mother's...again, her choice.

YOU really can't do anything, because she is not your daughter. If it bothers you, then I suggest that you avert your eyes when you know you'll be in her room.

Your stepdaughter has a right to have pictures of her mother and extended family if she chooses to. So what if she doesn't have photos of her dad in her mother's home (although I don't quite know how you would know that for certain). If she is placing them in the main family living areas, just suggest she can keep them in her room.

If she wants pictures of her mother, you'd be pretty petty to deny that.
