My daughter separated from her husband with a young daughter. They moved back home with us and 5 years later she has met someone new and after 2 years of dating they are moving in together. We have watched  our grandaughter while our daughter worked for 5ish years. My husband retired this year and we are ready to do what we want to do. We have our sweetie here 2 days a week (while her mother works) for the summer and will get her off the bus when school starts. During the school year her mom picks her up about and hour after she gets off the bus and we like the daily contact. Now they want us to do the same for his child and we aren't willing to do that. We understand if they want to find care for both of them at the same place and refuse to see it as them taking her from us. We have had kids in the house since 1982 and we are ready to end the daily childcare part of our lives. They feel that we are being unfair and not accepting his child. We like him and enjoy being around them when the parents are there too. Of course the kids fight and are jealous of  attention or things. They are both only kids who are used to having their parents to themselves so it is a bit tense around them. We still want to have her her for overnight visits and hope that they will allow this. They have told us that the other grand parents are more inclusive and we are being unkind to his boy. We see it as wanting our grandaughter to have some down time. we enjoy our time with her so much and really want to avoid the stress of the two of them together.  Hopefully things will get easier as this new family's relationship grows.
