It's all relative!

Dear Friend:

Keeping who is related to me has always been difficult once I get past the brother, sister and cousin stage, so this letter left me with a monstrous headache!!!
Many years ago, I married a widow out of love who had an 18-year-old
daughter. After the wedding, my father, a widower, came to visit a
number of times, and he fell in love with my step-daughter.  My father
eventually married her without my authorization.

As a result, my step-daughter legally became my step-mother and my
father my son-in-law. My father's wife (also my step-daughter) and my
step-mother, gave birth to a son who is my grandchild because I am the
husband of my step-daughter's  mother. This boy is also my brother, as
the son of my father. As you can see, my wife became a grandmother,
because she is the mother of my father's wife. Therefore, it appears
that I  am also my wife's grandchild.

A short time after these events, my wife gave birth to a son, who
became my father's brother-in-law, the step-son of my father's wife,
and my uncle. My son is also my step-mother's brother, and through my
step-mother, my wife has become a grandmother and I have become my own
grandfather. In light of the above mentioned, I would like to know the
following:

Does my son, who is also my uncle, my father's son-in-law, and my
step-mother's brother fulfill the requirements for receiving childcare
benefits? 


(See what I mean?)
