I was in a similar situation. My mom was diagnosed with schitzophrenia a few years back, but she really wanted to be involved in DD's life. She is also a poor driver. She is, however, an awesome lady, so I don't want to begrudge her a grandchild.
When I had DD, I told my mom that this was my child, so what I thought was best goes. She agreed. So, now she watches her for about 3 hours a week while my BF and I go on "date night". We always stay close by, so if she starts freaking out, or something happens to Keagan, we are just a couple of minutes away, and we always have our cells on us. It helps us both out. She gets a grandchild, and I get some "adult time" with DD's dad.
