So thats probably not the real case, but that's how I feel. DD (13 months) and I are living with my mom while DF is deployed. And since we got here, DD plays with her nana more than me. And it's not like my mom takes care of her, not by any means, she does help though, I am pregnant, and I have a bum leg, so getting on the floor and rolling around is painful for me. We do play in our own way though. It just seems likes she likes Nana more than me. And I don't try to let it get to me, because in 9 months we will be movin back to WA, and not get to see nana for like a year. Also, it bothers me when my mom slips up and calls herself mama, and the few times she's called my stepdad DD's daddy. Uhm NO. You are not her mother, and he is not her daddy. Besides that, I appreciate my moms help, and love. I don't know guess I am just wanting other mama's to tell me it will be okay, that it's normal, something......Answer Question

It's normal for Grandmothers to spoil their grand kids rotten, let them get away with more, play with them more, and generally love them to death. Your feelings are normal, and you gotta take into account your pregnancy hormones got you bouncing all over the place. I'm gonna ask my future grandchildren to call me "Big Momma." Your Mom could never take the place of you, in your daughter's heart or life, so chill. Do whatever you need to do, for yourself by yourself, to feel secure in self. This will make you a better Mom, Daughter and Wife. The trick is to achieve balance: so much time to self, so much time to God, so much time to family, so much time to society, etc.
