My mother has wanted my 6 yr old to be with her since she was born. Saying you can have another baby. And despite what I say or how I say I to her, she acts like she is the victim or that I am trying to keep my daughter away from her. My mother did not raise me or my brothers and we have all tried to get to know her as adults. I am frustrated because now my daughter wants to go. My mother has made her a room and has 'brainwashed' her into telling others her home is with grammy. I try to keep them apart now because I dont know what else to do. Therapy is not an option because of the expense and my mother does not believe she needs to go. Also i am pregnant with my second child. Any advice?

My ex and I are not together but get along very well. We co parent easily. He also gets along well with my fiance with whom my daughter and I live with now. Our home is always clean and happy. We do things together all the time. Tonight is skate night and tomorrow we are attending a bday party at a splash pad. We also play family game night games, read and cook together.
My mother has 7 indoor dogs and her idea of cleaning is moving things from one room to another.
She still believes laela should be with her.
My brother with children lives 8 hours away and my other brother thinks my mom is crazy and not serious. My ex and fiance think she is serious and say to just keep her away.
I wish my mom would just get it together and act like a grandma.
