So where does that leave Maggie? With tag team parenting that was sketchy at best. We played the game of who feels worst and who was able to do things like bathtime and stories. Most of all, we relied on the help of my mom.
I've been told by many people that they don't have what we have. They don't have this amazing relationship with their mother. Or the relationship between the grandmother and grandchild. Because, let me tell you, it is complete and utter adoration. These two are so very close. Maggie has her own room at Ga Ga's!! Compound that love with that of Mom Mom too, we have one spoiled little Munch!
Twice this week, we called on my mom in sheer misery to take Maggie for a little while. Without even a second thought or a complaint, Mom took Maggie. And I was able to sleep, rest and get better. Which I am, slowly. I have more of a voice then I've had in days.
And the thing is? If I need her another time, I know she will be there. I know that she does it purely out of love for me, Andrew, and sweet little Maggie. She loves this little girl so much. And we couldn't be more lucky than to have her in our lives. Maggie loves her Ga Ga!!
