    How can a father refer to his wife when talking to their child? Is 우리 엄마 inappropriate?

    우리 엄마 is used to refer to his mother, not his wife.

    우리 엄마 refers to the child's grandmother?

    Yes. When a kid says, 우리 엄마, that is his/her mother. When an adult says, 우리 엄마, That is also his/her mother.
