As a fellow hands on, stay at home Mom of 2 elementary age daughters and married to a busy physician (but I'm not an actress), I really can relate to you. I can tell by the little I've watched, that you and your husband have a good relationship, and maybe it's hard to have conversations with undivided attention, with four children. It's also hard, going into a conversation with hope and expectations of how another person is going to react to good news, because you set yourself up for disapointment, and it's not necessarily a reflection of how Terry is feeling, just simply distracted by perhaps, thoughts of work, children, etc. I can see how Terry does like to joke around alot, and that may be endearing most of the time, that's just who he is, and he can't turn off and on his personality, just as you can't. With all this said, I have faith that you guys will ride out this short wave, and keep blossoming as a family, with every new chapter that opens.
