I have my godson a lot so I have all medications I would need for a two year. Well his grandmother heard his mom and I talking about how I just got him more teething tablets and Motrin. She had a HUGE fit about how no one should ever be allowed to give someone else's kids meds.
I feel like if I trust someone with my kids then They should be able to give them any medications my kids may need.
So how do you feel? Is it ok or not?
I have him 3-5 days a week and over night at least 3 days a week and have since he was 2 weeks old. His daycare calls me before mom. I keep clothes, meds, toys, and everything else he could need here. Her mother is aware of all this and for whatever reason decided to throw a fit.
Ok I keep getting asked why I have him so much so I will add that here. 3-5 days a week was the original plan when he was 2 weeks old. Mom is on and off drugs. Unstable, bounces from man to man, crack house to crack house. I now have him 24/7. She comes once a week or so to see him. She has never taken him to the doctor, she has never cared for him when he was sick, she has picked him up from day 2 or 3 times (he has been there since he was 9 weeks). I get like $200-500 a month (sometimes) from mom to cover cost. Mom gets WIC so I use that she only renews it but I don't think she has ever uses her WIC. I would love to adopt him but I'm currently only asking for guardianship because I'm afraid if I ask for adoption she will take him and run off. This way I can limit her taking him anywhere till she is "better". I would love for her to turn her life around and have him full time but I don't see that happening. Her family has nothing to do with him and his father could be anyone. Hope that clears some things up :)
