You guys will think I am terrible, but when my 2nd child comes, my mom is not the one I want staying with my dd. She's elderly, she sometimes drinks, and worst of all, she is absolutely horrible to my DH and my stepkids.
I have tried to talk to her about it, but she says "just let me be me." So she complains out loud, in front of my DH, about his kids' behavior (it's really not all that bad), and she has called and yelled at me about my DH when he was in earshot... she is not a bad person, but she has this really invasive habit... which means it would just be more stressful to have her here when the new baby comes.
But she's trying to book plane tickets and is so excited and just assumes she'll be here to take care of DD when the time comes. I have no idea how to kindly tell her no. Any ideas?
She is not a monster-- she just doesn't understand the effect she has. I can't change her at this age. I don't know what to do.
