Just need a little advice on how to manage a crazy family s

Just need a little advice on how to manage a crazy family situation. Not sure how to break it to my daughter who is 7 that her daddy's mom isn't all that good of a person or healthy for her. To start off, both her husband's co.mited suicide. Should i tell her? Her daddy got her a iPad where she can video call her anytime. My mil has cornered me in her kitchen, ridiculed me at work and was always tryi.g to come between me n my daughter's relation ship. She admits she's wronged me n was jealous of me cuz I have daughter n she never did. Should i remind my daughter of the strange ways she use to try to manipulate her and control her? Should I say the wrongs and remi d her of how openly she competed with me and how creepy obsessive and controlling she was n always tried to one up me? Now I'm 1500 miles away thank God. But I don't want my daughter thinking so highly of her or wanting constant communication w her. Honestly I feel most mom's would-be cut her out. Yes she paid for my husband to finish degree so we are better off n has been good to my daughter n helped me in past. But I feel that doesn't forgive those really wrong wrongs. No grandma should ever compete w a mom or feel like she co.es first to child n is superior. Out of respect to my hubby I'm civil. That's it. Occasional hi and I feel same should be for her. Should i talk to my nearly 8 year old daughter? Or just hide tablet? I feel just hiding it will make me bad guy. Maybe I should just say wrongs she did me and don't admit truth of her dead grandpa commuting suicide over her driving him crazy n taking all his money. Any Advice? I have to make sure she doesn't tell hubby too. If it does come out I would cafe less since its all true n realistically he shouldn't be encouraging that relationship w his daughter n its wrong to me in a way I feel. Fui

My sister who lives 4 hours away wants me to live near her. I miss her and her kids n would love my kids to be near cousins but I fear his mom would move near us. She's already mentioned how she realizes she needs to live near family cuz she's 64 and thought of moving near her son in Tennessee but she hates winter. So I feel that moving there is like a trap a spiders nest that's be hard to get out of. I wouldn't mind her near us in a nursing home. But not while she's able enough to be in our faces everyday and wreak havoc on us. I hate how this lady operates. It's like she's hoping and waiting there n probably trying to gamble I would move near my sister again cuz we're close m she's waiting n sitting there. Ugh. I'd love to live near my sister again but I don't know if u can risk that. I do love where I live and the change of seasons. I only hate the long winter here in New England.and of course would rather me n my mom move near my sister n be a big family again. It can get a lol lonely. I don't have many people here I relate with
