I'm a single mother and I work long hours at the hospital. With work hours and commute times I hardly get to see my daughter. My mom has been taking care of her at those times. But things have gotten weird to the point where my mom thinks and acts as if she's the mother of my child. She wants to dress matchy matchy with her when going out or for special occasions. And she doesn't take my rules seriously. I've heard her encourage my daughter to call me by my name and whenever I discipline my daughter she would laugh and make it seem like it's nothing to be taken seriously. My mom seems very competitive with me over things. I am so hurt because she never encourages my daughter to come around me. She acts as if this is her child And she won't listen to things I tell her to do. She tells me to change an outfit to her liking or tells me every single thing to do with her.
I am so lonely and stressed out. I feel like my daughter loves her grandmother more than me. I don't know what to do.
