No. I'd happily have her live with us though!
I wouldn't move in with her because I'm very proud and would never voluntarily live with a parent after I'd grown up and started a family. That, and I sure as hell am not moving to the US, let alone New Orleans. It's great for a visit, but the climate and it being in the US rules it out bar none.
DH and I have already told her, though, that she's welcome to come live with us when we move. She's hinted many times that it's lonely for her where she is, both her kids are in the west (BC and WA) and she hates living alone. We get along quite well and it would be nice for her to get to know her new granddaughter, considering she's the only grandparent.
Only if I absolutely had no where else to go. She does have a huge house but she's getting older and losing patience. She's forever trying to correct my kids (even in front of me) and I hate it.
Other than that she and I get along well. I just have that one issue. Well that, and she smokes in her house. I'd die before I let my kids live in a smoke filled house.
My husband and I had been married a few months and were living overseas. We had a 6 week old baby and he lost his job. We needed to move back to the states (which his company paid for, thank goodness) but we were completely broke. So we moved in with his parents. It was 4 adults and an infant in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom (1000 sq ft) apartment. Luckily it was only for a month, but it was for a looooonnnngggggg month! I am grateful, however, that they were kind enough to take us in because we had nowhere else to go.
No. I like her but we need our privacy.
If i absolutely had to due to economic or health reasons, BUT NOT if my FIL was still in the house! I would NEVER move in the house while my FIL is still alive.
NO!! She is only 45yrs old but she acts like she is 80yrs old. No Thank you!!
