I have been blessed with the most wonderful mother-in-law. When Josh and I first got married we lived on the west coast and she lived in Ottawa, so we didn't get to see her very often. After we had our second child we moved to Alberta. Not long after that, my mother-in-law also moved to Alberta and actually lived with us for 6 months. I always knew she was great, but having her live with us was a testament to how great she really is. She helped out so much with the kids, and was there to look after them when I was pregnant with our 3rd and had to stay in the hospital for a week. I was able to get the care I needed without worrying about how my children were doing because I knew they were having a great time with their Nana. She even brought them to the hospital everyday to see me. She now lives an hour away and comes to visit almost every weekend. I am so happy our children get to see her so often and she is such a big part of our lives. She recently had a "big" birthday and I was happy to be able to throw her a little party.
