For the first two weeks after our twin boys came home from the hospital my Mother-In-Law was there at the house, helping us with … everything!
Especially while I was at work, her presence, guidance and helping hands were a god-send to my wife.
While it would have been great if she stayed until our boys were grown and off to college, she had a husband and responsibilities 4 hours away.
After two weeks – my Mother-In-Law was gone.
The mother of our boys – cried – all day long.
Alone, with zero experience, with our two, with no back-up until I came home – would shake even a seasoned warrior.
When I came home, she generally went face down into the mattress!
I wonder why?
