Hi, I'm hurting very bad in my heart and I think its making me sick. I have a small grandson of 2. I took care of him alot since birth. Not everyday but alot on weekends when my daugher wanted to go out for exampel from 8pm - 2am at her house to make it easier for the baby. Then I had him every time when he was sick or she had an appointment, even know I had a job too. He then was sent by his mother, my daughter to daycare, and this was very hard for him. He cried alot. I talked to my husband and I quit my job and was hoping to pick him up every day at noon from daycare and bring him home with me. We live in a small town. He was happy but she complained because he would not sleep right away or not enough when he came to my house and made a fuss at home, because he was tired then. She started a new job and is working full time now. Our agreement was, that I would babysitt for her on weekends and that she would let me pick up the boy from daycare at noon, because I don't want him going all day from 7am - 5:30pm. I kept my promise and babysit for her so she could go out. I admit I had a hard time staying up until 2 am and there were times I complained about her going out on weekends or just going out to much. In the mean time I bought a nice stroller so I could pick up my grandson from daycare. I also bought alot of toys, swimmwear and gardenstuff, for him to help me in the garden. I was looking forward going hiking and biking with the boy and taking him swimming. When the time came and I wanted to pick him up, she said NO, he would be better off in daycare at least she would be sure he gets his sleep and is not fuzzy at night when she gets off work. This breaks my heart so much. But she only says, she talked to her counsler about this and was told that daycare is good for him and that she needs to go out. She is avoiding me and hasn't called in a while. But I know she will one of these days when she wants to go out. What shall I do? Continue to babysit on weekends until 2am so she can go out and have fun? If I say no I might never see my grandson again. To be honest I don't want to babysit for her on weekends any time, so she can go out. I only want to help my grandson. Am I being selfish? Someone please help me here.
