In which my MIL does it all

My fantastic mother-in-law flew out last Wednesday when my mom had surgery
so that she could take care of the Peanut while mom was recuperating.

We're so lucky to have family that loves Peanut (and us) so much that they'll do things like that.

She stayed Wednesday through Sunday and proved that it is indeed possible to:

watch the baby
and keep the apartment clean
and spoil the baby
and make dinner, all of which were special requests, 
from scratch
every single day.

She also nearly finished 2 books.

Did I mention that she watched Peanut and made dinner and 
the place was cleaner then when she got here?

I'm pretty sure she blew my cover because it's taken me 
17 months to convince B that none of that was possible.

But can she do all that AND browse Pinterest and Facebook?
Can she?  Huh?!

~sigh~

The outlook isn't good, my friends.

We're running out of leftovers from her visit
and there are toys everywhere
and there are dishes in the sink
and

wait a minute... where is that kid anyway?

  5. Love your MIL (aka "Auntie Nanci") but darn if she doesn't make the rest of us "normal" moms look bad! :) (and I mean that in the best way, if you are reading this, Auntie Nanci!!)

  6. I'll bet that she loved every single minute of it! Spoiling grandchildren isn't really work, it's just instinctive...
