  • neighbor calls to have her 9 yr old comeover while she runs to the store
    i have a three and a half yr old with autism
    it is ok
    but she does not return the favor much at all

  • No, I have never done that but there are a couple ladiesin my sub division that asked is their child could play here and when I said yes they said they needed to clean with out them there. I caught onto that one real fast. They both only did it once. Shame on them!
    But as far as having kids come over so I can clean yeah they make more messes that I have to clean up then would get done.

  • No I have not done that but may consider it after the second child arrives. Good Idea.

  • I dont think I would, but maybe. If the house really needs it and I can't figure out another way to get things done.
