"A happy family is but an earlier heaven."

Ive been writing the blog for over a year now, it's a dadblog so obviously its filled with the stories about the boys and Mrs M, but its easy to leave out the family that we don't see all the time, the ones that always make the effort to keep us a close knit family. Today we had a delivery from a florist which was a lovely surprise and inside a card saying simply 'thanks for listening and your kindness'.

The flowers were from nanny Roo, Mrs M's mom a lovely lady who is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. I feel so lucky to have her as part of my life and the boys adore her. Ruth is the closest thing i have to a mom and she has welcomed me into their family with open arms. I'll always remember the first thing she ever said to me, "thanks for looking after our little girl!" it really was nice to be appreciated by such a kind and caring person.

Nanny Roo has been through and is still going through a pretty rough time at the moment but despite this she has been a tower of strength (i can honestly say in the same situation i would have probably crumbled). Its nice to see a family all coming together in times of need as unfortunately i don't have that on my side of the family. Sad really but i guess I'm just used to it by now it one of the many reason why i have really embraced this relationship with Mrs M's parents.

 I love it when Ruth rings the house and it's me that picks up, I'm not sure Mrs M likes it though as we can be be on the phone chatting for quite some time and she's always desperate to get in on the action.

me and Seth have been making something special for Nanny Roo for Christmas which now it is finished were both very happy with it. Unfortunately because Nanny Roo is one of our regular readers i cant let you guys in on what it is but be sure to check again after Christmas to find out what I have been helping Seth with.

Thank you for the flowers Ruth and if you don't know already we all love you very much, as for the listening, we will always be here for you whenever you need us xxx
