It is not easy to be a woman, and it is not easy to be a lady of the house. A man has three wives and four concubines. Although there are proper respect and concern between my husband and me, I am not loved.
I have to work hard to manage the disputes, to ensure that my two legitimate sons were born and grown up well. Also, I have to make sure that, amongst the sons of Lao Ye, only two of my sons would be grown up safely. I tried my best to protect my sons.
When I wanted to find a match for Yu ge er, I took a fancy with the girl of the Lin family. Even though she was only 13 years old, but my judgement of her won’t be wrong. She has bright eyes and a pleasant face. She is a person who knows how to live well.
She knows how to manage life, and she knows how to find amusement in her own way. She is suitable to be the lady of the house for the aristocratic families. Even if she is not loved by her husband, she will not complain about herself. She can still take care of the housework, educate her children and support her husband by managing the household affairs so that he has no worries.
Once I saw her, I took a liking to her. When I went back to the house, I told Lao Ye, and he told me that the girl was too young and it seemed that the Lin family wanted to send her to the palace.
I had to give up. I have no choice but to give up my preference and chose Yan shi from a well-known family.
When it was time to discuss marriage for Fan Ceng, due to the imperial court’s reasons, Lin family and our Fan family wanted to form an alliance. I took the opportunity to mention the marriage again. This time, the Lin family agreed. My Ceng ge er is more blessed than his elder brother.
Later, it turned out that I didn’t judge her wrongly. My second daughter-in-law, no matter where she went, would make people around her happy and she is filial to me. Looking at her living life so energetically, I feel a few years younger.
When she was pregnant, she asked the beautiful maids around her to serve Ceng ge er, without any reluctance.
When she just gave birth to a child, Ceng ge er wanted to take in Xue Rou. She agreed to it. Her expression had the joy of giving birth to a son and not a face full of jealousy or grievances.
When Ceng ge er was muddle-headed, she didn’t quarrel or make a fuss about it. Instead, she carefully guided him and comforted him. She did not let my son suffer a fall due to the fireworks woman.
Xue Rou did that kind of filthy thing. In my opinion, she should be killed, but Lao Ye let her live. As soon as she knew about it, she immediately found a reason, send her away, and no one could pick out a mistake from that.
My son grew up by her side. I am glad to know that he has taken responsibility. If Yan shi has half of her good characteristics…
Yan shi thinks that I am biased. Actually, I am biased. It is not because I love my youngest son more, but because I really like this daughter-in-law, and I treat her as my daughter.
Just because she is smart and generous, but she doesn’t force herself to do so. In such a complicated and challenging life, she is still happy and full of vitality. It allowed my son and grandsons to feel happy with her and make the family more like home. A mother always wants her son to live happily. How can I dislike her.
