Reply to How much time Is too much?

I agree with Christa. I am running into this with my mom actually. She definitely wants to be the "fun grandma" and not let my daughter be upset. Ever. I get it, to an extent, she's done her job as Mom and now she just wants the fun parts lol. I think that kids are smarter than we sometimes give them credit for, they can definitely adapt to the "time and a place" theory. I even used that in my classroom when i was a prek teacher. Just be consistent with what you expect when your son is with you and he will love and appreciate both of you, in different ways. I know it can be frustrating, but I'm sure you're crushing this momma thing!
