  • I'm in FL too - but here let's see if I can offer you some long distance help super-Grandma!


    Here are some CM groups that might have some play groups or friends you can meet to help you out and maybe take the kids for an hour or so here & there so you can get a break; etc...

  • Oh & no offense intended; I don't know her from a hole in the ground; but I don't think too much of your daughter either for doing this to you.

    She needs to woman up and take care of her responsiblities!

  • it looks like you are suffering from some severe stress and anxieties.........the first thing to do is to get the children to bed....even if it's earlier than usual and take a long hot bath....your body needs to relax.....you're on go mode all day as a grandma/ mom to your grandchildren and its taking every bit out of you. The next thing you need to do is find an outlet that is safe for you and the grandchildren......you can go to church and get they have daycare....and certainly try and get some counseling to help ease you through your stress and anxiety...hope this helps a little...
