Mel, 32, says it's "not nice" to think about Billy slipping backwards.

"I just try and keep very, very busy," she says. "I make them little calendars, or send them gifts in the mail. We try to keep them positive."

Mel and Dave's mothers are sharing the care of Billy and five-year-old Westin, with other family members helping out as well.

Dave, 34, is grateful he can at least FaceTime his sons, who are back at home on Queensland's Gold Coast.

"At least you do get to see each other a little bit," he says. "But we try not to ring them every day."

Mel adds: "I just believe it makes them more upset."

Dave, a fly-in, fly-out worker, is used to the heartache of saying goodbye to his sons for two weeks at a time.

It's the main reason the couple have gone on House Rules. They're hoping to win so Dave can give up his drilling job and they can run a gym together.

"Some people say, 'Oh, it's good money,'" Dave explains. "But you miss half of your loved ones' lives."

He says it's harder as the boys get older.

"Now, they're doing footy training and stuff like that," he says. "That's the thing you live for as a dad: taking them to do their sport and watching them learn and grow."

Although Michelle and her two young daughters live with her mother Kim, Michelle isn't a single mum. It's just that she chooses not to live with her partner, Anthony.

"We're together," she explains to TV WEEK. "We just can't live together."

Michelle, 27, says it comes down to their different approach to parenting Bella, eight, and seven-year-old Aaliyah.

"He doesn't deal with them as well as I do," she says. "So we get into arguments, and it's just one mess.

"This works. Everyone's happy this way. It's a good relationship."

But Anthony is still very involved in his daughters' lives.

"We'll still go over to his house on weekends or whatnot and the girls will spend the night there," Michelle adds. "But home is where Mum is."

Kim's house in Tweed Heads in northern New South Wales is also home to her husband David, her other daughter, Melissa, and Melissa's son, Cory.

Michelle and her daughters have been sleeping in a bunk bed in a small room with no door. Michelle shares the bottom bunk with Aaliyah.

Michelle is planning to move back in with Kim when House Rules has finished filming and the house is renovated.

But it may not be forever.

"Maybe I'll give things another go with my partner," she concedes. "I'm just not sure yet."

House Rules airs Monday to Wednesday, 7:30pm, and Sunday, 7pm, Channel Seven.
