I'll never write again...

This first night was amazing.

Gabe is hyper and vulnerable at the same time. Zoey is a doll... definitely not three. A very demanding two year old. Karen is sweet and quiet for a nine month old. I am thinking drugs may have affected her because she has the hugest head on any baby I have ever seen.

It was so chaotic. We really weren't prepared. My poor husband has had about 3 hours of sleep in the last twenty four and he did the best he could. My son came home, played games with Gabe for twenty minutes and fled. My ice princess has been a rock. But how will I get them to where they need to go? Math class? Youth council? The rink? And as for writing? Right. I have six articles to finish up this month. Maybe just maybe....

Right now I am hot and have a splitting headache.

My hats off to any mothers with young children who can write.

Hang in there, Teri. You'll figure out a schedule before you know it.

Thinking and praying for all of you.

I told you the first week would be hell! You are an amazing woman and you can handle this...you can! Need anything, just call, you know where I am!

I write at home with just one child and am expecting #2... it's tough, but you can totally do it. Your blog title "Martinis, Motherhood and Mayhem" just took on a whole new meaning, didn't it? Very proud of you - not many people have such a sense of responsibility.

Can't get to my e-mail right now to e-mail you, but I saw this and got the news! Hang in there, dearie! I have a box to wing to you tomorrow, so maybe something in there will help. One day at a time, remember?
