Today I am thankful for:

1. My mom-in-law putting Z down for her nap.
2. My mom-in-law watching the kids so T and I could have an actual date.
3. My mom-in-law feeding the kids dinner.
4. My mom-in-law getting the kids to bed before we returned from said date.
5. My mom-in-law cleaning my kitchen - not in a bitchy you-are-such-a-bad-housekeeper way, but in an I-love-you-and-this-is-a-nice-thing-I-can-do-for-you way.

Man, I love her.

Oh, and the date was fun, too, even if the movie (Valkyrie) was a total downer. We actually had stuff to talk about besides the kids. Huh. Guess that's why I married him!


  1. That is something to be thankful for.

  2. Sounds like a good lady.

  3. A date? Dare to dream!

  4. Hooray for excellent MIL's and yippee on the date. I do want to see Valkyrie cause i am a history geek LOL.

  5. Awesome; glad you had a night out without kids!

  6. You lucky girl! I wish I could have five minutes alone with my husband. Well, maybe more than five minutes....hehe. What is a blog button, industrious woman?

  7. I have a fantastic mother-in-law too! She is truly wonderfull. I hope I can be a great mother-in-law like her some day! She's definantly nothing like the stories I hear from other laides!


I am a comment junkie.
Thank you for feeding my habit.
