So she has your child 14 hours a week. She is clearly not raising your child.

However, as long as you use her for free, or almost free, child care you will need to put up with her crazy.

Perhaps you could come up with some comebacks that gently put her in her place. And I emphasize 'gently'.

For example, if she repeats that nonsense that 'you had her but she's raising her'.

A good comeback would be "Yes, your helping us out for about 14 hours a week is greatly appreciated. Baby girl enjoys her time with you."

That way you cannot be accused of fight with her if you complement her with the truth.

Re: Grandma issues

Pay up;
My grandma had me and my brother from 6am till 5pm every week day until I was 9; dad paid her 45 per month & that was from 1968-1976,

Meals
Gas/car
Not to mention the horror of seeing us often covered in blood; sometimes not our own.
& there was that time we brought the garbage of snakes into the living room. Ah good times.

Pay up; grand parents deserve it man
