For most people the terms mother-in-law sends a shiver up their spin. The other half of the family… sometimes the ones you really don’t see eye to eye with… sometimes the ones who say I told you so… For me this isn’t the truth, my mother-in-law is outstanding (ok mom don’t feel bad your mother’s day post is right around the corner).
Two weeks ago my MIL was in town. It was the best few days my wife and I have had in a while. Why, one might ask it – simple out of the 7 days my MIL was in town my wife and I were able to sneak out 6 nights in a row. It was married with child bliss.
Otherwise it’s really great for Marc to hang with Granna. Since she’s based in Texas its really nice to have her around for a full week. Sure living in NYC is a little cramped but it’s a small price to pay for the happiness my wife gets from having her mom in town. Granna gets to take a peek into Marc’s life goes to all the classes gets to do fun events (like seeing Rock of Ages) and having fancy dinners out with Suzanne.
I’m glad our relationship works…. I hear so many horror stories of the dreaded in-laws but in my mind – I couldn’t have asked for better. Even visiting with them is a piece of cake (well more like a pound and half of Texas BBQ).
