I am actually a grandmother

My daughter used this site when she was alive. She passed away almost 3 years ago and her now 5 year old son lives with me. She always liked the site and thought she found excellent advice. i remembered it when I was searching the web for answers for bedwetting. Thanks for the great tips. I will let you know how it goes.

He is a good little boy and calls me "Mom" cause, as he told me, he doesn't have a Mommy anymore and he needs one. Up until then I had discouraged him from calling me Mommy. He knows I am not his "real" Mommy, but I am the only one he has. I know I am not alone in my situation, and I want to thank this site for giving Moms a place to find out what has worked for them.

I too am sorry for your loss. If he wants to call you mom, let him. This is making him feel good to know he has a mom and your are it. Enjoy him no matter what title you use. The main thing is that he is being loved by you.

Thank you Beverly. As we have women from all over the world the advice can differ dramatically but we all have the interest of our children in our best interest.

I'm very sorry for your loss and can understand how hard it is on your Grandson. I think it's wonderful that you are able to look after him.

I hope to see you around.
