************************************************************
From HOW TO SURVIVE THE FIRST YEAR WITH MULTIPLES:

Give yourself permission to make "mistakes."
Write this statement down and put it in a spot where you will see it at least once a day: "During this day, I will do the best I can to be a mother to these children with the information, wisdom and energy I have at this time."


Maintain your sense of humor
If you don't have one, get one -- QUICKLY! Research has shown that smiling causes your brain to release chemicals that make you feel good. Additionally, laughter releases endorphins in your body that allow you to relax. So, when you can only laugh or cry, do the former. It is more fun (and less expensive) than anxiety medication or therapy.
