As some of you know, I have a lovely DGD aged 8 months:DI idoloise her and look after her at least 2 days a week as well as a weekend night most weeks so my DD can go to college, go out etc.I enjoy having her, and have even made her own bedroom for when she stays, and she is a really good baby:D
However sometimes I can't always say yea to babysitting, as I am going out, or as has happened this week I have been ill, plus have had a new kitchen fitted so my house is in complete disruption :oI have prob said no about 3 times in 8 months, and today I have said I can't babysit tonight as my DGD is ill, and I am, as well as the kitchen thing.My DD has now put on fb that i'm selfish and lazy!!:eek::eek:
I know it's childish and I know i'm not selfish, or lazy but I am really hurt:(:(
I'd appreciate any advice from any other Grandparents as how to move forward with this situation, as talking and trying to reason with her always results in more verbal abuse
The feeling I get is that she doesn't want/expect me to have any life myself, and every time I try to do anything independent I get all sorts of hassle :rolleyes:I do however feel like I do more than enough for her and my DGD, without any appreciation

candy , you want me to go round and have a word in her shell like???? lol
you ar not selfish far from it, from the chats we used to have, you must be the most selfless person i know,
yes she is acting like a brat, and i guarantee she will run back to you with her tail between her legs, once you and mum stop the sitting for a week or two.
being drunk is not a defence as she said it again when sober, she has been brought up better than this, as you are a good mum and a great nanna.
perhaps the thought of her having this small child depending on her completely, and her carefree life as she knew it coming to an end, has scared her, and she is taking it out on those closest ie you.
well if she think now is bad, wait til the angel hits 2 and 4 years then there is always the teens lol
