Hi my name is Barbara and I just became a single mom.  And right now I'm in need of some advice.

my soon to be ex husband's girlfriend's mom calls my son her grandson.  now i like the fact that he is accepted and all.  but is wrong with me asking him to not have her call him her grandson and one of her boys.  i dont want my husband back that ship has sailed.  the only problem i'm having is him calling his girlfriend mom or mommy and her mom calling him her grandson.  i'm really loss at this point and not sure what to do.

You can't make him or her stop your son calling her Mommy. However, I would talk about it with him. I would ask him this question: How would you like my every boyfriend to call him Daddy? If you say that he has one Daddy and it is you, it is being very hypocritical to say the least. You should be correcting her on it. I am though very happy that she is very accepting of our son and you as a package deal though.

Welcome! Is girlfriend going to be wife? If not I think it's reasonable to ask until she does to hold out on the grandma thing

actually yeah i can.  she's not his mom i am.  if his dad doesnt want to respect my wishes on that then my son wont go over there.  and he can visit him at my place.  i'm not trying to be mean or anything but as his mother i have every right to say i dont my son calling her mom or mommy.

me and him are still married.  he had an affair with her.  so until we get divorced i'm not sure how to handle it.
