My daughter, her husband, her 4 yr old, 15 month old and her new baby to come are moving in with dad on 2/22. Dad's house is 3 bedroom 3 bath 2600 sqft. It's in the country and dust and dirt blow in and track in. Dad isn't clean himself leaving dirty fingerprints (oil/dirt) on the white cabinets and doors, etc. I told my niece I was going to hire a housekeeper to come in 2x a mo to clean and she said "is that really necessary? When I lived there I could keep the house clean." But she had a 7 yr old and then a baby. Right now dad's caregiver does his laundry and cleans the toilets and his bedroom. Am I being unreasonable in thinking my daughter (and me!) needs help? I've been cleaning that house for 20 years myself and then helped my mom, prior to her death. Even mom had a "helper". What do you think? I would have dad pay for it and I was looking to do it before my daughter decided to move there.
