doug has just taken his mum back to the airport. it's sad. she has been here with us for two weeks and i have been able to sleep in each morning with baby joe whilst maddie has danced around the house, watched movies, had tea parties, gone for walks to the shop and just generally had a complete fuss made over her.
oli loves her grandkids so much (well just kids in general really - she has made no secret of her desire to have a whole bunch of kids even though she was only blessed with two) and i am so glad that she made the effort to come and help us for so long. i know so many mother-in-laws are crazy and cause all kinds of drama, but my mine is amazing! i am so lucky and feel so blessed to have her as a part of my life - and for my babies to call her grandma.
