I live with my FIL and he can be an old grouch, doesn't edit his words around the kid, should bathe more, but I understand why my DH wants him to live with us. There are good sides and bad sides to every story. He has bonded with his grandson, we are close to help him with his health issues and he helps us with the bills. If you focus on the negative, that's what you will take away from the situation, so I am trying to focus on what is positive.
