My mother recently got a divorce, and I recently had a baby. I am going to go back to school full time to finish my degree, and she offered to move in with my husband and I to help with the baby and financially (pay half the mortgage) since I will be in school and only working part time.
What do you think??? I love my mom, but I am not so sure it will be a good idea... This is only temporary, just until I finish school about 3 years.
Should I let her move in with us?? It would be such a huge help, but I don't want to make a huge mistake.
Anyone live with their mother? Any advice would be great!

If your husband is Okay with it and your close to your mother, then go for it. Just be assured that it will be temporarily.Best of luck!

It is always difficult to live with someone! Consider how well you and your hubby get along with her, how everything is going to work out, and make sure you discuss everything up front. Who is gonna pay what (electric, gas...), who is gonna buy what (food, toiletries...), who is gonna do what chores, and so on. So there is no confusion later! I was sorta in the same situation last year, and my dad moved in with me to help out so I could quit my job and go back to school, but it ended up a big mess because nothing got discussed other than the bills. I ended up doing all the cleaning, and buying all the groceries!!! Living with someone is so much more than that! GL
