5 reasons why I wish I was my MOTHER-IN-LAW!


Here she is...one of the sweetest women you'll ever meet, my mother-in-law Janet Bechtel. She would literally do anything for ANYONE and expect nothing in return. And that's just one of the reasons I admire her.
Jake & Grandma being silly!
So why do I wish I could be her?

Glad you asked :)

Here are my top 5 reasons:

1. She can give my kids anything and EVERYTHING they want without feeling guilty! I know, she's earned that right and trust me, I don't think my kids deserve anything and everything they want, but it would be nice to say YES to everything for one day...guilt-free! (and no, I'm not talking about material things).

2. My kids ADORE HER! They think the sun rises and sets with her...that she can do no wrong and I think that's awesome! That's the way grandkids should feel about their grandparents. Don't get me wrong, I know my kids love me, A LOT, but there's something so special about the way they light up when she's around.

3. She's got the patience of a SAINT. Let's face it, she's been around a while and she did raise my husband and his brother, so she's seen just about everything! But it truly amazes me how she NEVER CRACKS!
She's a SAINT and here's proof!

4. She's a really good ROLE MODEL. Back to my hubby, her son...he is an amazing father/parent and at least 50%* of that is because of her.  She somehow managed to keep him alive, despite his best efforts, I am certain. And through all the craziness of being a parent herself, she instilled in him some excellent parenting tools that I'm super fond of.

5. Last, but certainly not least, she welcomes everyone (and I mean everyone) with open arms. The judgment-free zone is now open! It doesn't matter who you are, what you've done, your status in life, your current circumstances...she gives love unconditionally. Something we could all learn from...because in the end, love is all that matters.

So even though I don't say it everyday, I do love you Jan and I respect you 1000% for being an awesome mom, mother-in-law and the BEST GRANDMA EVER!

Just keeping it real!

What's something you really love about your MIL?

Please share this post with her and show some love! It just might make her day! 😍

*Back in the day a lot of dads weren't around a whole lot and when they were, parenting wasn't their main focus...having said that, Hans is the best grandpa ever and a great dad for sure!
