Kristian is now one week post surgery and he seems to be healing well though still in a lot of pain and not able to do a whole lot. Because of this I had my mom come down for the weekend to help out with Hunter while I ran some errands and took care of my husband. And also, because Hunter loves when nana comes to visit.
I really can't thank my mom enough for coming to visit, not only did she help entertain and watch Hunter while I got other stuff done but she did about 10 loads of laundry for us, cleaned out the cat litter box, sewed two holes I had in my shirts and helped tidy up the place. I told her many times she really didn't need to do any of that, I really just wanted her to enjoy her grandson and help keep him occupied but being the awesome mom she is she couldn't resist helping out in other ways. Just seems to be the nature of motherhood I suppose, always wanting to help your child no matter how old your child is.
We were all sad to see her go on Sunday. Hunter really enjoyed his nana time and I really enjoyed having an extra set of hands around the house (and also some mother/daughter time). We say all the time that if we ever win the lottery we're building/buying my mother property nearby so that she can visit more often. It gives me such joy to see my mother and my son have such a wonderful relationship.
