my son has 2 girls by his ex girlfriend. one is 5 and the other one is 2 weeks old. the mom also has a 3 yr old by someone else but my husband and i have always acted like her grandparents. we have maintained a relationship with the mom because of the girls. our son thinks everytime we see them....hold them.....they stop by our house or we keep them overnight that we have to let him know. what are your feelings on this?

I agree with Kelina. You are their grandparents. Have you asked him why he wants to know every time?

why should you have to let him know? really what good reason could there possibly be for that? Unless of course she's keeping the girls away from him then that's a whole different ball game but really, the relationship you have with the girls shouldn't have a whole lot to do with him. The kids shouldn't have to suffer just because their parents are no longer together.
