Hi everyone! I am on the verge of a nervous breakdown. You see, I am a brand new grandmother of a cute little girl. The problem is, my daughter, the baby's mother is still being rude and disrespectful towards me.
But that's everday. My concern was for my granddaughter. I felt that my daughter, at 17 was incapable of taking care of someone so young. She wouldn't clean her room (a baby needs a sterile environment), not telling anyone that the baby needs milk nor cleaning the bottles/nipples. It broke my heart when I picked up the baby and she was sucking hungrily on her pacifier.
I couldn't stand aside and let this continue, especially when she and her bf slept through the baby's wailing. I contacted the paternal grandmother about my concerns and they responded that they would be interested in getting custody of the baby, rather than having CPS place her in foster care.
Now my daughter comes in the house furious with me, telling me to mind my #@#% business, and that I'm a selfish bitch. Rather than argue with her, I let her rant and scream at me until finally, she dissolved into tears.
*sigh*. I may be the most hated mother on the planet, but, it's a small price to pay for looking out for a young baby..
