Hearing that I had been put on strict bed rest for two weeks, Scott's mom Nancy, a.k.a. Gommie (mommy with a g) offered to fly out from Palo Alto to help. My first reaction was "No, there's really no need. It can't be that hard to stay resting and I have lots of people who've volunteered to help." Well, after about a day and a half trying to stay lying down while a 2 1/2 year old is running around the house, I reconsidered.
Having Nancy here during these two weeks has been an absolute life-saver! Not only did Gommie play with and take care of Seth, but she cooked meals, took me to Dr.'s appointments, finished setting up the nursery, lent me a great book (The Sugar Queen) and even scrubbed our bathroom for us! I honestly don't know if I would've made it (still pregnant) through these weeks without her. Thank you so much Nancy! We love you and appreciate all you do for us.
