Ironic as it favorite friend is my MOTHER-IN LAW, she is my rock, my glue that keeps me together! I am soooooo lucky to have her in my life! I hear of all these horror stories of daughter in laws with their mother in laws...I am like, "really", I LOVE mine....She has my back NO matter what...she laughs at my not so funny jokes and gets me even when I am venting about everything...she is OK with me calling her son (my husband) A asshole sometimes :)
She even signed up to do my swim class with me, knowing it would help me get my ass in there ( I hate to swim) she even does the 6 A.M. class....NOW that is a real trooper!!! We always joke that we are really sister's (which I do not have) we are so much a like and can finish each others sentences... WE know how each other's mind works! We both are KOOKY, but totally get each other!! She is such an AWESOME person and a AWESOME Grandma !! She is my "Special Friend" worth keeping!!!
I believe everyone needs that ONE SPECIAL PERSON in their life!! Give that "Special Friend" a big THANK YOU for sticking by you no matter what!!!!

This is pretty cool... a mother and daughter-in-law all as such good friends! I am a bit envious! I love my mother and law and respect her but it ends there... to be "pals" I don't think so! I can imagine it is hard for mothers to give their sons to another woman ( I bet I will be that way with Kainoa) but my mother-in-law STILL tries to tell me how Jim likes his eggs and how to do his laundry... it is like she isn't ready to share him and I feel like we battle over him. You are so fortunate!

WOW! You are one lucky duck! That's awesome - I am really envious. While my in-laws are supportive, it's always a little weird when we get together. They still live up in Wisconsin, so usually when we see them, my hubby returns to being "the kid/son". I still love them, but its more of a parent-child relationship. The fact that you guys are such great friends and supporters of each other is great! Great post!
