Tiny, Yes, the REAL father here is the husband! AndrewPL said it well! And this young man will know it too. Taffy, that is exactly what I meant by telling the family the way it must be. If this woman is at family events, she needs to act like the uninterested uncles girlfriend she is or our OP and her beautiful family will not attend. It's not easy to do, but as adults we must set boundaries to protect our children. The way this "grandma" is acting is cruel and confusing to a child.

OP, I'm sorry you have to deal with this kind of behavior. It's hard enough to be a parent. I am sending you and your family my prayers. It's unfair that some people never act like adults and selfishly do whatever suits them, even when an innoscent child gets hurt.

Lighten up. At that age all older women are grandmas. I heard a young lad remark that he'd been to a grandma's picnic. It was explained to me that the Senior Ladies Group had put this on. Years ago a man friend knocked up a gal and she stopped seeing him and he never knew. This daughter grew up and had several children. Then out of the blue he was asked to provide DNA and that is when he discovered he had two granddaughters. He began to spend time with them but confessed the bond he should be feeling wasn't there. A few years later his second daughter whom he raised had a baby and he was amazed at the bond he felt. This may be what has happened with this lady and the twins.
