You get to be number one in your child's life but it is dangerous to be the one and only.
I also know my feelings would be horribly hurt if my child didn't value my involvement with my grandchild... but I would hope to handle it with more maturity than your mother has.

But just a few posts later I found the thead "I miss my dd so much right now", in which you reveal that you work four days per week! So your dd is spending time away from you, right? Why not with grandma, then?
Or am I missing something?

Let me say that DD is a healthy, happy baby and I am a good mother. It's been so frustrating to have my parenting critisized all the time...
