Living With Grand Children

Living With Grand ChildrenThis is another post about adult children moving back with their parents. Having your daughter son-in-law and granddaughter living with you is an incredible opportunity. It also requires some adjustment to your daily living activity. In our case we have been 10 years without anyone living at home and suddenly we had our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter living with us for two months. Living With Grand Children is a great opportunity to bond with your grand kids.

In our case our granddaughter is three years old and is a wonderful little child. We truly love her and enjoy almost every minute she is around us. We would not be honest if we did not say that she is just like the majority of other children were she has a great disposition, lots of humor, lots of energy and like all children she sometimes has her moments when she is tired and grouchy.

Having three people move in with you requires adjustment to your daily schedule and life. For example in the mornings there is a huge rush to get ready for work and get our granddaughter ready to go to daycare. We generally stayed out-of-the-way, we helped a little bit at breakfast time but other than that we let the parents do everything.

In the evening it was our turn to look after our granddaughter while the parents got supper ready and did some of the household chores that they like to do. We got to spend an hour and a half with our granddaughter getting to know her and playing with her. At 7 o’clock it was bed time and time to get ready for bed and then we got to spend time with our daughter and our son-in-law.

This was a truly great opportunity for us as grandparents to spend time with one of her grandchildren as well as our son-in-law and daughter. We enjoyed every moment of it and sure there were times when things did not go smoothly but that is to be expected in any families life. You deal with it, and move on and make sure there are lots of communications to resolve any issues or conflict. This is something I would recommend for all families providing that you have the patience for kids, and communicate well with your family. The other requirement is that everyone should pull their weight in terms of the household chores and duties.

We would definitely do it again in a heartbeat.
