Brighter days

Everything is always brighter the next day. I won't say that I woke up today and all my problems melted away. That just isn't true. But things seem more in the realm of manageable.

I look at my kids and try to remind myself just how lucky I am to have them. Next year (heck - even next month) is it really going to matter that Jack refused to nap unless he was held? I don't think so. It is hard to remember that in my moments of intense (and irrational) frustration, but I know it to be true. I do.

I just want to thank everyone for the texts, emails, phone calls, facebook messages, and comments (wow - there are a lot of ways to get ahold of me...). I felt a lot of support yesterday from folks who know what I'm going through. Mothers of all kind share a bond. Whether you have one kid, twins, twins and a toddler...we are all fighting the same fight. And I'm thankful to you all for reaching out to me when I needed it. I hope each and everyone of you knows that I will support you when you need it as well.

Life is beautiful when you have these three precious souls in your life.

All I know is I better get one hell of a mother's day present this year.

: ) At least I still have my sense of humor : )

I'm just catching up on blog reading. Glad to hear you are on the up and up hon. I think that these feelings are totally normal. TOTALLY. I don't think it's baby blues or PPD. Some days life with twins is overwhelming. I can't even imagine twins +1. It's especially hard when your husband is in a demanding (but successful) career with long hours. Joe is in a similar situation. He gets paged in the middle of the night and I do A LOT by myself. It's hard to give up the extra set of hands. And he's going back for his MBA too, so a lot of the time he has at home - when he's not working at home - is spent doing school work. They will only be this small for a short time, and as they gain independence, you will get some sanity back. You're doing an AMAZING job Megan.
