Is it really that odd?

 I recently divorced, The 3 kids and I moved out when ExDH and I sepperated, He told me to leave and I can not afford the house on my own. I had a choice I could move in with my mom or my dad. They both have 4 bedroom homes and live alone.

I chose to move myself and my kids into my dads house. I love my mom to death and would do anything for her but she gets on my last nerve. She drives me NUTS. I can deal with her for a day or 2 but then we are both ready to kill eachother. My dad on the other hand is easy going and not as nuts as my mom. LOL. 

Mom got upset that I didn't move in with her and I have been told by many family memers that it is odd that I chose to live with my dad rather then my mom. Is it really that odd. They kids and I can be more relaxed her and dad is really easier to live with, plus he is the one who watches the kids when I have to work. (The kids dad gets them 2 days a week and if he wants to pick them up for a few hours in the evening, if I am working he can, he usually doesn't since he live across town)

Is it really that odd for a grown woman and her kids to chose to move in with dad, instead of mom until they get back  on their feet?

No, they're both your parent. Plus now they'll have a familiar male presence in the home.

Not odd at all. I love both of my parents dearly but if I had to live with one, it would be my dad. My sister and I joke that when we visit his house, it's like Club Med and my mom's house is a museum.

The only reason I would live with my mom instead of my dad is because my dad is a hoarder. If he could get that under control, and learn to smoke outside, then I would much MUCH rather live with him, especially for my children's sake.

(After I divorced, I lived with my mom for a week and it was mental torture)
