What would we do without father-in-laws

Today began as a normal day: Playdate,and the usual picking up of her toys, nap, lunch, etc....
Well as I said yesterday, we have been living in Split now for 4 months and neither one of us has a job yet. My father-in-law is contacting his friends for possible opportunities. Well tonight my husband and I met two wonderful people (I know what you are thinking, they offered us a job?) Nope, it wasn't that. But what makes them wonderful is that this was their first encounter with us and yet they promised to do everything that was within their reach to help us out with our job search. I mean how many strangers would make that kind of commitment? True friends, that's who. And for that I feel indebted to my father-in-law. He is a wonderful human being with a big HEART.
After the meeting we went to pick up our little one. My father-in-law was babysitting and we met him at the playground and he told me he had a surprise. "Buenas noches, gusto en conocerte" the girl greeted me in SPANISH. Imagine my surprise. Can I take a moment -to take a moment?....Still taking a moment...

Recuperating from shock..this was some random lady in the playground that was speaking spanish to her child, my father-in-law heard her and introduced himself and asked if she could wait for his daughter-in-law to arrive. (the lady is bilingual in spanish-croatian). She gave me the names of two more chicas who are also latinas living in Split. Need I say more?

  2. I am sooo happy for you!!! Yaaaah! I bet you are really excited!
