So was William!
She also made us meals, did the dishes, cleaned, scrubbed my baby play-yard with a toothbrush (because of mold), gave William his bath and put him down for naps. She held Stephen when I needed a break, she even babysat both boys while I ran errands (not difficult for a mother of 4 I am sure!). And babysat the baby so I could take William on a play-date and we could spend some mom-son time together.
And if that weren't enough, she put up with me! And blessed me with encouragement and listened to my worries and concerns and offered support. I had a few rough days in there (I misplaced my keys and lost my cell phone), and I missed a doctor's appointment, got lost driving (after I found my keys), and was beyond exhausted. She helped me get to the last MOPS meeting of the season so I could see my friends and show off my nine-day old baby. She kept me alive and even gave me opportunity to live a little! Not something I expected so soon after having my little guy, but I was so thankful!
We are so grateful for the time and love she gave and gives to our family. Our boys are super lucky to have this lady as their Nana! And I could not have asked for a better mother-in-law!
