I'm so sorry to hear you're reaching your limit. Sounds like you're trying to do so much for Tall Girl maybe you're not doing too much for you? Remember in the airplane you have to put the mask on you before you put it on your kid...

Anyhow, I just wanted to say that if it's having someone IN your house, Mr. Marsh's housemates are still out of state and there is an extra room. I/You/Mister could talk to him about her staying there. If it's having people in town that aren't the four of you... nevermind.

You've been on a long road and there is a rest stop in sight.

Hugs, Love, and Smiles to all of you.

Wow, it sounds like a really rough schedule--don't blame you for being at your wits' end. I think you're doing really, really well, all things considered.

Shortly after A. was born, Steve's mom announced that she was coming to stay for a week (when the previous discussions had all mentioned "a long weekend"). Even though our situation was not even 1/10 as stressful as your current one is, I totally lost my s***. I don't blame you at all for being upset over this latest change--you've got so much going on right now!

Sending lots of good thoughts for you all, and strength for the weeks and days ahead.

Just reading reading reading along and with you in spirit. Such a beautiful time and in every way not what you expected. Soon you will be home and this will be part of the whole story. Can't wait to have you all back and safe and well.

So I'm a bit behind, but it is great to hear that the little guy is doing so well they are planning to send you home sooner. How exciting. I hope all goes well in the coming couple of weeks for everyone!

You know so much has happened in such a short amount of time. And on top of that, as you said, you have had non-stop visitors since forever. You have barely had any time to think about yourself and what you need and I think the day that Sydney has to leave, you will be caught up in taking care of her emotional needs (because that is the kind of person you are). So, whatever you need to do now to take care of yourself, I hope you (and the mister) can make it happen.

Wow M. Every new mom has a breaking point i think. Most people would have crossed it LOOOONG ago. I think you are doing wonderful for all you have been dealing with. So many difficult situations to deal with. Its hard not having your family together. really hard. This is such big change for all of you. Keep in mind the time apart (from Tall Girl and husband) will be temporary. Kids are so resilent, and she seems like a pretty "chill" girl so I bet she'll bounce back wonderfully. You will be a famiy of 4 at home together in no time.
I am just constantly amazed at how you deal with all of this. Please, please take care of yourself. You are a new mamma and your wishes need to be taken care of as well. All my best to you guys. Thank you so much for the updates. :)

Hey sweetie! We are thinking of you all and hoping that everyone will get what they need, but especially you, Mama!

thinking of you guys...i hope the mister's talk with sydney goes well. i can't imagine how hard juggling all of this is.

Oh, sweet friend. So sorry about this heaping load of stress. As an introvert, I totally understand getting to the point when you *need* space in the most serious of ways. It just takes you much (much!) longer to get to that point!

Knowing you and how kind and thoughtful you are, you will do the very best in a difficult situation. I know you will. And I'll be thinking of you the whole time.
