Anybody ever lived in a motel room with their kid(s) for a few weeks?

Posted by   + Show Post
Just wondering if anybody ever has had to do this, because it's one of my only options right now.

When I was a kid for a few months we lived in our car, a tent and motel 6 when we could afford it. I actually have all happy memories from that time. It's much worse on the parents then the kids I think.

Yes. We moved to nj, had a lease signed and everything.
Well, it took the landlord a month to get it ready for us to be able to move in. So that's one month in a hotel!
It sucked!

Not with my kids, but when I was a kid with my family. We had a house fire and they put us in a hotel for a couple of months.

Absolutely not fun, though it was nice to have a pool nearby.

We do every 3 years, we are military and when we get to a new place we are stuck in a hotel for how ever long it takes to find a home. Last time we moved out of one house, drove to visit family for 2 weeks and we all slept in the same room then drove to AK that was another week of hotels then finally arrived only to spend another week it was a total of 4 weeks with out a home.

I believe that because it's been a year since we had to live in one and DD always says she wants to live in a hotel again! Lol!
She had it made!
Fast food everyday, able to watch tv in bed, still had all her toys and favorite things to snuggle with!

This. Do what's best for you and those babies, even if you're in a hotel room for a little bit. Gl
