Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

In laws.. :)

I really do love mine. My husband's parents are still together, high school sweethearts.. and the BEST people I've ever met. 

Okay, get this.. this STILL amazes me after 6 years of being with my DH..  they live 2 and a half hours away and they drive here almost every weekend to see their grandchildren. 

I also have three SILs, who all pitch in to help us whenever they can.. for example, we've been having some financial problems & my DH's middle sister just brought over $150 worth of groceries (at least.. she claims she doesn't know what she spent lol)... we would have never asked for anything.. but she just did it.. My DH's oldest sister just took my kids to Pizza Hut for no good reason 2 weeks ago.. just for fun. 

I just had to say that they are AMAZING & truly inspiring & I'm sooo happy that I married into such an awesome family! :)

Does anyone else LOVE their in-laws?? I always hear negative stuff about in-laws! Lets hear some positive!! 

Thanks again,  

Meggie-May

I do, really, just like you. My MIL called me up out of the blue the other day to see if she could have DD for the weekend--like, Friday to Sunday. I was like Yes! I want to take your son out!

I absolutely love my in-laws.  In fact, if it weren't for them, DH and I probably wouldn't have had a wedding reception.  They paid for it all and I am so thankful to them for all they  have done.  We spend almost every weekend with them.  :-)

 I have one normal SIL I tell DH the only difference between him and I is I had enough sense to see my mother was out of her mind and got her help!

His stepdad/fosterdad when we see him I love him he is a big old teddy bear and I know is the man who made my hubby the man he is

Mine are pretty amazing :) mil is very giving and helps with soo much..and my husbands aunt is amazing with dd, she watches her for us, for free. She buys her own food and supplies for her, her own set of toys and clothes. They are lifesavers and we would be lost without them!

I have never physically met my Mother-in-Law, but I talk to her online and on the phone all the time. She is a sweet heart! I cant wait for this summer, she is coming up here for a week to visit!

meeeeeeeee toooooooooo! I love one side of my in laws. Hubby's Mom and Step dad! I absolutely adore them!!!

 

They paid for our wedding, and they take our son when we need to go into work (I work from home mostly). 

 

Now, my hubby's Father and step mother, TOTAL opposites. Dislike them tons.

 

I REALLY LOVE my mil and sfil! =) I love all my husbands brothers on that side too. They LOVE playing with Jayden.

My in-laws are also really amazing....they spend a lot of time (and even more money) on our boys. For a long time they used to keep my older son at their house one are even 2 days on the weekends. And most recently...when I had to go to the ER they came over together(although I only talked to my MIL) and stayed for almost a week just to make sure I was OK and helped with the kids. And they never ever take any money from us. MIL is a great cook. SHe makes all kinds of great meals for the kids and she's an expert my now on how to make allergy free stuff for them. They are just over the top parents in law. I could not have it better.

Mine aren't as great as yours. We have a rocky relationship. But they are still pretty cool
