for my mom! I have NO idea how she did it! My dad was so hands off, my mom would take care of the 4 of us, did all the cooking, all the cleaning. I now understand why she hand-washed all the dishes after dinner instead of putting them in the dishwasher- it was the ONLY time we, kids, left her alone! I really wish I had appreciated her more while she was here. I'm feeling like such a spoiled brat feeling like I need a break after 7 weeks with LO.
