Even though my inlaws have repeatedly let us down currently, when I was pregnant and after Brii was born they where there when ever I needed them.
They knew that I was the mum and suggested helpful hints and tips, and I never felt like I couldnt ask them their advice, but they never made me feel like they where taking control.
They even came to my baby shower when my mother was going to be there, (they didnt get on) and made me feel relaxed.
I came home one day before Brianna was born to find the nursery had been done. They had got all their furniture they where not using and bought some second hand furniture and had repainted and set it all up for me. They even bought a beautiful bassinet.
I had been stressing over getting the nursery down and they just did it for me. There was a HUGE wardrobe, a nappy table, a change table, the bassinett and a bookshelf, all painted in the colours I wanted (pastel blue, green, pink and yellow).
My mother in law even bathed Brii for me when we got home, as I didnt even do it in the hospital( the nurses did), and I was so nurvous. She was fantastic and even though there is friction now, I am the first to say that they have done more than anyone else has for us and that I am always grateful.
I feel very lucky and wish I could tell them how much their support ment to me since my own mother had no time for me or her grand daughter.
So thankyou Julie.
