What would you think of a family(dh, wife, 3 kids) finding a house and moving in with a single mom with 3 kids? Shes a very good friend we have known for yrs and we both have special needs kids and already spend alot of time together. It would help her out with childcare issues so she can work and not ahave to pay out childcare for special needs kids, we would have help in finances and housework and such. Would you think it would work?
Thanks for all your replies and advice, we do spend alot of time at each others houses and we both know how the other handles their kids and homes. We have already talked about rules and such, not so much bills yet but we have just come up with this idea to save us both money. I know there wouldnt be an issue with her and my dh, they are both wonderful and faithful ppl. I have been with my dh long enough to know hes not that kindof man and shes not that kind of friend.
The house would be 5 or 6 bedrooms, with a couple baths and a fenced in yard for the kids. Its actually my oldest sons BFF's family. The kids all get along and play wonderfully together. I would probably do most of the cooking as shes not a good cook( she has said this) everyone else would be cleaning and such. we would do our own families laundry.
We havent committed to doing this, its just something we are thinking of doing. Thanks again for your advice.
