s Helen. I can't say about the olders, but I know what you mean with the preschooler/toddler/baby situation. It does get lots better. Infinately so.

Thanks I think I believe you.

AM, theoretically I have help because we're snowed in and so DH is off work. Mum's back up north, and whilst she'll come down if I need her, I can't ask unless we really, REALLY need her. Well, to be honest, the weather the way it is I just can't ask, really, because everyone is stuck.

I wish I was nearby. I'd come over in a heartbeat. If you need someone to listen to, I'm your girl though.

Congrats on the pregnancies, anstar and StormySar...I'm feeling it too! Not my favorite part!

And Hurray for the birth of your babies, Sam!! Exciting. Can't wait to hear what they are called and maybe see a picture??!

Ooooh, I absolutely love babies. Just holding them, nursing them...they are so precious and indeterminate and fresh and new and temporary. Amazing! I am so excited we are going to another baby. My only plan for the summer is to enjoy my new last baby. I already am impatient and am jealous when people have their babies. Silly me. We got into baby having thinking of babies and very small children...the preteen stuff has been a real shocker and we're always working overtime to catch up to the bigger kids and their phases!!

My oldest turns 11 tomorrow. He's growing into such a nice boy and shedding lots of his mischevious difficultness. Not all, mind you, or we wouldn't recognize him.

Today went better. I reached breaking point, told my family I was taking the day off, sat on the sofa and cuddled the baby- and horrible as it sounds, I don't think I've really spent as much time with him in my arms at any point as I did today. I think we're friends : He slept better like that this morning and napped for a couple of hours snuggled up with me, and I don't feel quite as helpless as I did. Maybe everything is going to be OK?

I can see you snuggled up and smiley -that's good

The other guys can manage without being tended to by you for a bit. They all know where the fridge is and they have each other so don't feel bad

Helen, don't feel bad for needing time out, I know last year I needed time out so I went on holiday for a few days. I was mentally and physically exhausted (and pregnant) and it gave me time to relax and unwind - I think all Mums so take some time out.


My twins have names Sophia Phoebe and Nate Patrick

And, it is going to be ok. s

Lovely names Sam!

The tricky process of family negotiation for choosing names seems to work

Sweet names! Coming up with more than one name at once is just one thing on the list that makes my head spin when it comes to twins.

I seem to have swapped babies with someone. Sam's been sleeping peacefully for an hour now. It's 7.30pm. WTH?
