I’ve been raising my grandson for the last 4 years. This is my son’s son. He was placed in my care by Child Protective Services at 5 months old, which ended in me having full custody of my grandson. My son wasn’t in the baby’s life until a year ago.
My grandson calls me mommy and my husband daddy, we have literally been his parents emotionally and financially. In the last year, my son would make a once-a-month visit with his son.
In the last 6 months, I have caught my son telling the baby I’m his grandma, not his mommy. I understand I’m Grandma, but it’s frustrating he feels he has a right to do that.
Baby will know we’re his grandparents when he’s old enough to understand. I also let teachers, doctors, etc. know I’m his grandma.
This has led me to tell my son he can’t visit with the baby. Am I wrong for not wanting to confuse baby right now?
My son doesn’t help with him financially and he already has another girl pregnant. He thinks a once-a-month visit is going to make him daddy."
