I Can't Believe She Said That!

So I was talking to my mom about my last visit down to my daughter's.  I was telling her that my granddaughters love me well enough and they say so from time to time.  But every time I walked past my grandson or he walked past me, he would hug me and tell me that he loves me. 

My mom point blank said, "I know that he loves you.  One day he will use that love against you."  

When I asked her what she meant, she said, "I mean just what I said, he knows that you love him and will do anything for him.  One day he will use that against you."

It’s funny. I think she is saying he may manipulate you with that at some point lol

Might be coming from a place of experience for her? Idk, possibly though :)

Odd of her to say.  Has she  had a bad experience with her own children or grandchildren ?

I agree.  Although it's a very strange way to say it, I think this is probably what she meant.

My grandkids try to schmooze me because they know how much I love them.  They've always been very affectionate with me too.

That's a depressing thing to say to you.  I don't like to hear people talking about little kids and predicting negative behavior when they are adults. KWIM?

Enjoy all the hugs and loves your sweet little grandson extends; they are genuine gifts from him to you.

That many not come true. Just depends on his personality. Maybe he dosent have a conniving bone in his body.

A totally inappropriate comment from your mom.

That is sad. It's also why she said that. Look on the bright side, he probably won't. That is very toxic of her to say to her adult daughter.

As much as I love my daughter, she did minipulate both of us.  I think she just wants me to be prepared.  I will continue to love all of my family, just with a tiny little shield hidden away. ;)
