I would bring it up with your husband.  “Honey, Dayla and Marco came back from Nan-nan’s house and told me that she told them that I never make them wear seatbelts in the car.  That’s just not true!  I don’t want her to ruin the awesome relationship I have with Dayla and Marco.  Can you help me with this?”

I wouldn’t monkey around with her at all, a confrontation would only exaggerate things and fuel her crazy fire, in my experience, being cheerfully unavailable is a faultless predicament.  Especially if her venom is getting on the kids….just tell her you guys are booked, maybe next time, thanks for asking.  Limit contact, ignore anything you hear and fill your emotional moat, she’ll find someone else to bother.

I would try and limit your interaction with her. She seems absolutely toxic for your family, and you have to do what you have to do.

I would try avoidance first. Buy try to get your husband on the same page or it will cause issues later.

TBH, why is this woman allowed around the children unattended? If she’s as bad as it sounds that isnt fair to the them.

The only woman who I can equate this to would be my stepmother, and I had to cut that woman out of my life; she will never be around my children. Some people have a sickness in their heads and hearts and we need to protect those that cant protect themselves.
