A week or so ago, my in-laws stopped by to see their granddaughter, something that I am always glad for and welcome them to do. They adore her, it’s plain and obvious and I would never keep her from them. They came over and Grandma immediately took Elizabeth onto her lap and they proceeded to smile and coo and dote over her. It’s rather beautiful to watch. I watched them with our nephew when he was a baby but it’s different with Elizabeth. I’m not entirely sure how but it is slightly different. Still beautiful, though.
As we sat there and Grandpa dandled (look it up, I swear it’s not a dirty word) Elizabeth on his knee, they told me that they had been watching Dr. Phil the day before and the show was about in-laws. Because of something they had seen on that show, they wanted to make sure that I knew that they think I am a wonderful Mommy to Elizabeth and that I do a wonderful job taking care of her. I have to admit that I teared up a little bit and felt my heart swell. It’s amazing to know that someone thinks that you are doing a good job of being a Mommy, especially when you feel like you don’t know what you’re doing 90% of the time.
So, thank you, Mom and Dad. That meant more than I can ever say! ^_^
