ok this is a spin off from my other post about sharing clothes, one person said that stepkid should bring a bag of clothes for the weekend since he doesn't "live" in our home (no sense in having two wardrobes), so I am just wondering if that is a general consensus?
for those of you whose stepkids come for weekend visitation, do you expect them to bring a bag of their things for the weekend or does your stepkid have their own things at your house?
my thoughts are that our home is stepson's home too, even though he primarily lives with mom. therefore, he should have his own things at our home so he feels welcome and knows that just because he "lives" with mom, our home is his other home too. besides, dh can't rely on mom to pack him things for the weekend. she doesn't accomodate anyone, so that would not be a viable option. But what are your thoughs?
