We are heading to visit my family and are thinking of where to stay. We think we will probably stay at a hotel, but my brother has asked us to stay with them. The only thing is that he lives with his girlfriend. I dont want this to seem normal in my kids eyes. What is the right thing to do?
Is it improper for me and my family (we have 6 kids) to stay at my brother and girlfriends house when we are on vacation?
You have answered your own question by stating your reservation—which is right on!
Your staying in a hotel could also be a good wake up call for your brother to get his act together.
