Wow what a lovely gesture

That’s fine. She will snap tour hands off!

Are you hoping the relaxing may speed up the grandchild grin

Quite normal in my social circle.

I... Would be careful about that one. It's a kind thought but I wouldn't want my mother up in my business cleaning my house and if she offered it would feel like an implied judgement. A lot obviously depends on the relationship with her but most married adults want and need some degree of separation from their parents, and having your mother offer to clean your house is quite... A lot.

If they both work those hours, hopefully they have good salaries and could afford a cleaner if they wanted?

What a lovely Mum! I’d be over the moon if someone offered me this.

God yes offer! If she declines I'll send you my address grin

Just canvassing opinions as don’t want to be an interfering mum.

Dd and her dh both work full time. Dd gets into work about 7.30am and doesn’t finish until after 7pm. Same goes for her dh.

They have no kids yet.

Aibu to offer to come in on a Friday and clean their house (for free) so they have the weekend to relax.

I am retired so have plenty of me time.
