I think that I might be crazy. My life is very busy right now. I have custody of my 13 yr old niece. Then I had my only son 3 yrs ago. He keeps me very busy because of how active he is. He also has several different medical issues. So, there is a lot of dr appointments and things that I have to do during the day.
Well, my brother called me and asked me to please take my 2 nephews for a while. He will give me the money to financially take care of them. But they will be moving in with me and my family. I know that my brother really needs the help. He wants to get his kids out of the environment that they are in. I told him that I would take them in when he is ready to leave his girlfriend. Oh, the children are 4 and 2. So, I will have a 13 yr, 4 yr, 3 yr, and 2 yr old in my house. the three boys will be in the same room.
Am I totally crazy. (He is talking about getting the boys in about 2 weeks)
I wanted to add a couple of things. A couple of people misunderstood the time period. I was saying that I will be getting the boys in about 2 weeks. The amount of time that I will have them will vary. It could be as long as a year. I did talk to my brother. He plans on giving me money every week to take care of his kids. We do live a distance away, but I think he plans on getting the kids every weekend. My mother plans on being here a lot to help out too.
Thank you to everyone for your kind words. I know it will be a big transition for our family. I do like the idea of a chart, and to get the kids to help each other. I think my son will be the hardest. He will have to share his space and his stuff. Where he has been used to being the only little one around for a long time. I am already trying to prep him for the change!
