WELCOME!

Do your mom and dad, grandparent, aunt or uncle share your home?  Has a parent moved in with you to save money, or have you opened your home to your mom or dad because they are struggling, or you want them to be closer to you, your family and kids?  Have you moved back in with your parents so they can help with your kids?

We would love to hear from you!  This is a space here where you can hear from others who also live in a multigenerational home.

    Neat blog! My apology it has taken 4 months to finally check it out. I am sure families appreciate the light hearted discussion, I certainly can. My lifestyle is somewhat different from “multigeneration living” yet similiar in that I have what we affectionately call a “Granny Nanny”. I am gen xer, single mom employed full time with about a 20% travel commitment. My mom is a boomer early retiree from the world of labor and manufacturing. My Granny Nanny does everything from meal preparation, evening transportation from school, taxi cab to piano, Tae Kwon Do you name it…. she does it all with love and care and she, my 13 year old and I share a better quality of life because of the arrangement. My career has excelled without the stress of “absentee mom guilt”, not to mention my mom enjoys the the perks and bonuses for her role. I often tease my colleagues stating that until the Obamas shared with America Mrs. Obama’s mother’s roles in their lives grandparents assisting in child rearing was not a common topic of discussion. I know it is true it takes a village and I can’t imagine life any other way!
