This is perfectly normal in the dementia process. As mentioned, she has likely regressed to an earlier age when the kids were little. She may soon think one of her sons is her husband, especially if that son now resembles her husband when her husband was young. And yes, she may even make a pass at him. It's sad, but it's part of the process for many. Hang in and check back for support. You'll find you aren't alone.
