Praise from Ian’s Mother

Yesterday I asked both my mom and Ian’s mom if either set of grandparents might be willing to babysit Lucas for *gasp!* a whole weekend. We are hoping to go out of town for our 11th anniversary in early June. This is what my mother-in-law wrote back to me (minus the details about babysitting):

“What! You guys want time to yourselves??? 🙂 I’m sure we can figure something. … Either way, make your plans for your big weekend.

“I do want to tell you how proud I am of both of you for making your marriage work. You two have done a great job from what I can see. Keep up the good work. Everyone has bumps in the road, disappointments, and upsets but the flip side is the joy and committment. In my vast experience with marriage, I have decided that the difference in a marriage that works and one that doesn’t is that you just don’t leave. Anyway, congratulations!! And from my selfish point of view, I am thrilled to see that my son is happy and thriving. (You’ll get that later when Lucas takes off on his own). Thank you!
Love you much,

Awwww! Thanks MIL, I love you too. Thanks for raising up such an amazing, loving, and devoted man to be my husband. I hope I can do the job raising Lucas as well as you did raising Ian.
