Mother-in-laws often get a lot of bad press, but they’re not all that bad, in fact they can be pretty amazing too. This Mother’s Day is the last one before mine officially becomes my mother-in-law because next year’s Mother’s Day is the week after R & I get married. So I’m here to celebrate how amazing she is and how happy I will be to officially call her my mother-in-law next year.
I am appreciating my Mother-in-law on Mother’s Day
She is the one that raised the love of my life while his Dad worked away.
She is the one who came to hospital when I was rushed in to A&E when R was in London.
She is the one that told me I was right to let Oliver self wean from breastfeeding when most other people thought it was weird.
She is the one that understands how hard it is when R is away.
She is the one Oliver calls “Nana” with a huge smile on his face.
She is the one that taught me how to sew a name tape in to Oliver’s first preschool jumper.
She is the one that always double checks if I’m OK with normal tea or if I’d like decaf.
She is the one who didn’t offer unsolicited parenting advice.
She is the one who I ask for advice.
She is the one that will rib me, but not judge me for pretty much never ironing anything.
She is the one that I want to be there when I’m putting on my wedding dress.
She is the one I will be proud to call my mother-in-law.
Luckily for me, The Cooperative sent me a lovely box of goodies so even though we have been swamped with DIY we actually have something to offer up.
….Except the Prosecco of course, that’s definitely for me!
Do you appreciate your mother-in-law? Are you lucky, like me, to have an amazing and supportive mother-in-law?
