Is it too selfish to want your mom to move where you live to help out and live near her grand kids? My mom lives out of state and she is not married. I have no family where I live and her grand kids are 2 and 7mos. I think I am being selfish wanting her here with us and needing her help.
There's nothing wrong with wanting something. If you really want your mom to be there, let her know how important it is to you and your kids. If she declines and says that she is happy, then be happy for her. There are things that you can do to make her and her grand kids closer. You can use web cams, emails, texts. If you bother her and harass her to move closer to you guys, that would be selfish. However, simply wanting her closer to you is not selfish. My mom passed away and I would give anything to have her here with us to help with the kids.
