Her mother has money and they are in cahoost its plain to see. My son has no control what so ever over the baby since birth. She will not let him even take him any where though he is there and very much a part of this family. He works long hours and goes home dog tired after stopping at the store most nights and fixes supper and cleans up because she has done basically nothing all day. She has 2 older children by former marriage and is constantly aruging with there dad about them. My son is always trying to teach them the correct way to do things because she is so far out there some times. She told me one time right after my grand child was boun that "she wished she didn't have to share her children with anyone" but until "now" that she realizes he is close to me--she hasn't been that involed--it is suddenly that she realizes he love me that she is keeping his attention on everything else when I'm there. My son is afraid to do much about this because she is so crazy--he now realizes what she did to her first husband--he did not know before he married her. She is VERY miniulative and controling and goes off the deep end easily!! We are between a rock and a hard place! I (we are)am very careful and walk on pins andneedles around her. My son is powerless and miserable, as I am.
