i need ideas about what to do/say to my husbands mother. she acts like our son is actually her son. it started out with little things like saying that "we need to get a new family picture because we have a baby now" and keeps getting worse as the months go by. now she tells the kids at the daycare she runs when they ask who is this, that "this is my baby" and texts my husband to remind us to get a babysitter and who we should use as a babysitter!!! i am so frustrated! i think she does it because she doesn't want to be old and thinks she's too young to be a grandma (52) and it doesn't help that she does still have a 13yr old daughter. but that doesn't change the fact that my husband and i are perfectly capable of raising OUR son without anyone's help. i don't want to be rude or keep him from seeing her. we are a very close family and live close too but this has to stop. help!
