My Mom

I have the greatest Mom in the whole world!
She has been with us for 12 days, I'm sure to her it was 12 days of absolute work, but to our family and especially me it was a wonderful experience.
Not only did she help with Reese, but she made great friends with Claire and Elizabeth. All of the kids loved the extra attention from Grandma, and when I am not able to give it to them right after a new addition to our family is born, she is the BEST filler, playing games with them and telling them stories.
My Mom worked way too hard running this family.
She stayed busy washing laundry, cleaning bathrooms, making bread and cookies, fixing delicious dinners, helping kids with homework, made a perfect Thanksgiving dinner, let Ben and me go on two dates and wrestling the kids in church all alone. And not once a word of complaint, or criticism of my disorganized life, just love and service!
Thank you Mom. We already miss you.

Your mom is amazing. That's why you keep having kids, so she will come visit you! JK. She is a great example, and is why you are such a great mom--and she is still so young looking and beautiful!

I'm glad she was able to come and help and visit with you. I think a daughter needs her mom more after she's had a baby then any other time.
