As most of you know, I have been heavily involved in the raising of my 15 months old GS.
I have been run down and tired lately and I have realised that the main stressor is my DIL. I constantly receive messages, face times, offers have having the little man etc..
If my GS doesn't sleep well, or eat, or is being naughty or sick, she is messaging me.. he could watching tv and she will just face time me, sometimes 2-3 times a day.
I want to help if I can but, it's like she's not asking... she will wait until I offer.. but, I am only offering because I know she wants me to.. Often, she doesn't listen to the advice given so I just listen to her concerns... That for me is very hard.
I thought my DIL feels like she just needs to update me and doesn't want advice but, if I don't offer, I'll continue to get messages until I do. I feel like I am going round in circles.
I have tried putting in boundaries but, it seems to only last a couple of days. I do want to hear from them and see my GS but, just need my DIL to see how tiring it is without offending her.
I wonder if I am reading this all wrong. Maybe she just wants reassurance.
