I don't blame you a bit for being stressed out! I hope your DH is doing better after being at the ER.

I think a 1 1/2 yo would want a tight bond with someone and who better than his grandmother and/or grandfather that he lives with, who he sees more than he sees his own mother. I'm surprised that his mother would call the other grandmother to watch him since I would hope that by the time she is home from work most days, the baby is sound asleep. If she has a b/f, she doesn't spend the night with him on occasion anyhow?

I hope she can get her act together and you get your DGS back! Let us know how it's going!

I also watch my granddaughters for my daughter who is in the National Guard. She is away for three months this summer for training. I can completely understand how frustrating it can be at times to want to be their and love your grandchildren, but not want to be taken advantage of in the process. My only advice is that your grandson will love you no matter what and so will your daughter. If you stand your ground about what you will or wont put up with your daughter should come around soon and apologize. Or at least I hope she does. In the mean time, try not to let your feelings for your gs put you in the position of being emotionally blackmailed.
