I am hoping that there are at least a handful of you on here who can offer some advice on this topic. I am recently divorced and my 5 kids and I have moved in with my boyfriend and his two. The kids get along infamously almost like they have known each other for years . So far the transition has gone very smoothly but there have been some instances that have come up where I find myself wondering how on earth we are going to pull this off. The "why do we have to do this when they don't" comment, has been tossed around plenty already. We are planning on coming up with a list of 'house rules' and a chore list that will apply to everyone. I would love to hear other suggestions, ideas etc on how you have made your blended family work.
