On Saturday something wonderful happened- my mother in law arrived to help with the baby for a whole week. Don’t get me wrong- hubs is great- but now that he’s back at work, having someone around to help while I’m pumping, or desperate for a nap, or trying to eat a meal in peace, is absolutely wonderful. And this afternoon when i was super tired and trying to power through the grocery store, it was she that was able to locate some of the items on the list that would have taken me ages. And she dealt with the fussy baby in the backseat who was crying and screaming- both ways- because she hates the car seat. Thank goodness for grandmothers.
