family advice (post new situation)
"crap from kid"
I'm being put between a rock and a hard place. My mother moved in with us and is continuing to use the cleaning lady she had when she lived at home. Problem, the cleaning lady is my daughter's husband's ex. My daughter was asked about the ex cleaning here. She wasn't happy but said it was okay as long as she never had to run into the ex and as long as no family info was given. Agreed. Now my daughter is putting pressure on me (remember, I didn't hire the ex) to fire this woman. Reason--she doesn't get along with her. How can I take away income from someone who so desperately needs it? Why should I allow my daughter to run my home? Why should my mother put me in the position to do the firing because she says she has no reason to do so? I am looking for someone else and do not intend on letting this woman go until I've found another cleaning person. This woman is trustworthy and honest. My daughter is threatening not to come over and therefore, I wouldn't get to see my granddaughters. She is very opinionated, hard headed, and stubborn. I don't want her to be unhappy, and her father won't back me up. I have had both of my knees replaced and cannot get around as well as I used to, so having the ex come and clean is a godsend. How do I handle this?
