Grandma raising babies???!!!

So Im a grandma raising grandbabies, 1-4 yr old & twin 11 month old & daughter just gave birth to another little boy over weekend that they will probably pull as well. Any thoughts? Advice? Feeling overwhelmed at this point & guilty for feeling this way. Bottom line is I will probably take this one in too but at what point do we stop stepping in? Not that I dont love them & wouldnt love them all- Im just tired. My BABY just graduated high school & it doesnt look like my husband & I will ever get to retire ^&^. It looks like there was a community for grandmas at one time & I joined but no activity for months so here I will post.

You have a lot on your plate here. Are all these kids your daughters? I think you should set her straight and tell her that you cant cope with all these kids so close together and she needs to help out and step up. She also needs a lesson in family planning before you get any more kids. I know you love them all dearly but there is a limit that any one can cope with. I would not be able to look after this lot! You are an inspiration to us all for what you are doing, but, dont let your good nature be put upon!
