The Mother-In-Law Files

I have decided to start a file called "mother-in-law" to record all the thoughtful things my MIL does for me and our family. I want to remember them for when I am a mother-in-law. I'll keep a running list here too.


1) Take the grandchildren shopping to pick out presents "from them" to give their parents. This is what Hunter picked out for me.

Is this not stinkin' adorable?!?!

Jay picked out an electric toothbrush for me (with electric floss...he's really excited about that!) and ammo for John. Hunter picked out jeans for John and the above purse for me. LOVE IT!

2) Remember what it's like to be young with (or without) a family, realize that money is tight at times and ask them what is one thing that you skip buying at the grocery store (or wherever) because you just can't justify the purchase.

Mine was silver polish. Guess what was in my stocking! And guess who has the shiniest jewelry in town! ;)

This is just the beginning of the thoughtfulness that is shown to us every day.
