Ok. So I know I’m supposed to be all “OMG. My in laws are SO annoying” (and I’m probably going to lose my wifey street cred with this post) but I have a secret — I think my in laws kind of rock.
First of all, ever since they semi-retired they have been traveling the world. Pretty cool, huh?
And when they found out we were having a baby they decided to live here for Fiona’s first month to help out. Definitely cool.
And when they met Fiona they were so entranced that they decided to come back (after a brief hiatus to see cousin Tobin in Toronto – shout out to the Tobinator!) for a year. And look after Fiona three days a week, every week. Way cool.
So they got an apartment in the Mission (definitely cooler than where we live), get out and about in the city (much more than we do), and take care of our little pumpkin. And on more than one occasion they have left us a home cooked dinner at the end of the day. Very very cool.
So remind me again — what am I supposed to be complaining about?
