Well I totally understand your point, but I am a grandma now, so I see that side too. I think it's the grandparents "role" to spoil the grandchildren, then send them home to their parents. When the grandchild lives with you it gets harder because we want to spoil them but then we also have to deal with the little monster we created! I have learned that the hard way!!! LOL I say pick your battles, then have a talk with your grandma, pick a few rules or limits that are very important to you and ask your grandma to abide by those. One step at a time. She can still spoil him with her love and attention, but some things she can't do, like junk food, or buying too many toys. Remember she's learning this role as much as you are learning yours as mother, if the two of you try to work together, things will work out better. You are very lucky to have her in your life!
