Mother in Law

My mom in law has been here for just over 2 weeks now.
It's been wonderful.
My house has never been cleaner, the dishes are washed, laundry done, floors are spotless.
I cannot thank her enough for everything she's been doing during her stay to help out myself, Jesse and Kristen.
But I'm also scared.
I'm scared for when she leaves this Saturday and I'll be on my own while Kristen is at work.
What if she's helped me out too much and then when I'm home alone with Jesse I won't be able to handle it on my own???
She's been especially helpful with Jesse when he's been fussy and I've done everything in my power to soothe him and nothing has worked.
She's gladly taken him from my arms and showered him with grandmotherly love and walked the floor until he's settled down.
Who's going to help me when she's gone?
I know I'll figure it out and I'll do okay but honestly I feel like I've been spoiled and now going it alone is a very scary thought.
I guess it's all part of the process...the plus side to this is I'm healing quite nicely so physically I should be able to handle the walking the floor (if necessary)
And I also feel like its time now that Jesse will be 4 weeks old this coming Sunday to "hopefully" start some sort of daily routine on my own, just me and Jesse....IF I can.....LOL. We'll see if he cooperates with that idea.

I`m sure you`ll do great. You`re supposed to get spoiled the first few weeks-that`s when you need it most.
