Mum to the Rescue

My Mum has been fantastic!

She's been coming over every day to help teach J to cook and clean. She's experienced and systematic. J can be forgetful but mum patiently repeats instructions and demonstrates what needs to be done day after day.

She calls/texts me to confirm what I need J to do, and what instructions I have already given, so that she does not contradict me or make J confused.

She discusses with me what she thinks J likes to eat, so that I can make sure we have those in the house. (Yesterday I bought Chinese Roast Pork for her because it is similar to what they eat in the Philippines - she loved it!)

She even explained to me that J could be forgetful now because she is homesick, and assured me that as long as she has a good attitude and is willing to learn, that is a blessing.

When I was down with the flu, she chased me to bed and boiled good stuff for me to drink.

I feel so assured and relieved that she is around to help.

I love my mum!
