I need to confess up front: I consider this my wife’s blog, but she consistently reminds me that it is “our family blog.”  At which point I typically ignore her.  The last time she reminded me she nonchalantly threw in there “but you don’t treat it like it is…”  Which is true.  So, instead of trying to keep my writing to my blog (shameless plug), I decided to write a little something on our blog 🙂

If you didn’t know, we’ve spent the last few months (since October) living with Marie’s parents in Northern California.  (Of course, if you didn’t know that, then you probably don’t know us very well and that makes me curious as to why you’re reading our family blog…)  I’ve been asked how it’s been, living with my in-laws.  Allow this post to be the answer to that question.

It hasn’t always been easy.  I mean, how would you like to live across the hallway from your in-laws with your 4-7 month old baby in your room with you?  There have been times when communication has been…difficult.  But I don’t suppose that will get any easier as my own kids get older.

HOWEVER, as far as living in someone else’s house goes – I don’t think it could have been better.  Danny and Bonnie have been more than gracious in their hospitality.  Danny has helped me with issues with our car, as well as hooking us up with some sweet deals on tires.  Bonnie has been awesome with helping with the kids as well as keeping the fridge properly stocked 🙂  Oh yeah – and the ultimate bonus – we had free babysitting almost whenever we wanted.

So, Klein family, thank you for your hospitality and generosity.  We love you much, and you will be missed.


Your nose-picking Son-in-law.
