Grandma's coming to town!
Tomorrow my mother-in-law (the saint, Paula, Gramma Buh, Ian's mother, Niev's favorite phone buddy) is coming into town. I CANNOT wait. I know there are those of you out there that say that your mother-in-law is your archenemy, but this is not true in my case. She is a great friend and one of the best babysitters found on this earth. She adores Niev almost as much as I do and can't seem to get enough of her. She has the patience of Job which is perfect because about the time that I run out of patience with Niev is about the time that Paula comes for a visit. I have not been feeling well lately so my patience is definitely been wearing a tad too thin. Luckily, Paula is on her way to rescue me.
Ian is also excited to see his mom (he is kind of a momma's boy, but in a good way). I can tell he is excited because every time we talk about it he gets giddy and then he has been singing anything and everything (you have to know my husband to realize that he does have a great voice but he doesn't always use it to his best advantage...it can be REALLY annoying!).
I really cannot express how much this means to me that I can go on as many dates with my husband within the 10-day period of her stay as my little heart may desire. Niev has a constant playmate that will personally entertain her, teach her, read to her and love her. Plus, I could talk to her for days on end. It is the greatest deal EVER! Honestly, more people should become friends with their MIL so they can have this great opportunity as well. I guess to make things fair, you should be able to also have Paula as your MIL, but unfortunately Ian is the only boy in his family, so your kind of out of luck.
