    glutton for punishment.....
    My #2 son is moving out he will be getting married.... she's a real nice girl and is loking forward to being a stepmom........ Well my son#3 came over with his wife and asked if they could move in. My ddil lost her job so now they can't afford the 1200 month rent plus where they are at there are no jobs. So of course I said yes. So the end of this month my son, his wife their 3 kids and her brother will be moving in with me. Their oldest son is austic and is very hard to handle. the brother will be the one watching the kids while they are at work . So that easier for me....... i don't think I will ever get to be alone..... but what else can a mother do........

    Your life must never seem dull, LOL. You're a good mother to be there for your kids the way you are. Hopefully they help you out while they're with you.

    Bless your heart. That's a lot for you to take on. When our grown kids came home to live with us, we all had a sit down and talked about our expectations of each other. It turned out good and when they got back on their feet and moved away....I missed them.

    It happens to all of us, my DS24 just moved back home from out west. He got his master's degree and now can't find a job! He has his appl. in everywhere, but no luck. They are laying off middle aged men in his field, so.....

    We are pleased to have him here, but I know he'd rather be on his own if he could. He has been for a few years before this.

    Lucky for me, he is being SOOO helpful around here. LOL!

    I think you are a great person for doing this for your kids and grandkids. I would do it for my DD if she needed.

    I think in this day in age it is nothing to say about the children but the economy...

    They did everything right, got educated etc.... I would be proud and welcome them home, but set some ground rules also....

    Well I'm not dealing with the brother he move in with is dad and uncle. He liked to eat all the time and my son and his wife were liniting his eating. He would sit and eat 4-5 packs of ramen in one sitting and drik the little ones juice and then say the kids drank it..... I do a lot of watching so I saw a lot....... Bree is staying home with the kids and going to school. I'm not babysitting. I do take off on the weekends to my sons that use to live with me. His youngest was going thru seperation anxity. He has downs to his dad trys to make it stress free for him...... Things are just to noisy here.

    I couldn't say it any better than all the previous posters. You're a great mom!

    Hang in there, and remember the FV is here 24/7 when you need to talk!

    Take care of yourself too.
