ok here goes (sorry if it sounds like im ranting)
me and my partner have 2 sons (aged 1+ 2). we've done everything we can to make them happy, but my two year old keeps askin to see his nanny. my partner and myself keep trying to arrange a day for us to take the boys to see her but she doens't seem bothered. in fact she hasnt bothered with my sons since her daughter gave birth to a little girl 5 months ago.
myself and my partner have had plenty of help off of my mum and my nan, and are both very drained and continously feel tired. we asked his mum the other night if she could have the boys for a little while whilst we caught up on some sleep. and her reply was 'no, im looking after my granddaughter, cant you ask your mum or nan to have them?'
my mum works full time as a teacher and my nan has just moved house and then helped my mum move so she deserves a rest. Im fed up of her always blowing my kids off for her granddaughter. i've spoken to my partner about how i feel and how our 2 year feels and it just ends up in arguements.
Anyone have any advice on how to get through this? or what me and my partner should say to his mum to make her understand that she cant stop seeing her grandsons because she has a granddaughter now?
