Coping By JOANNE KOCH "When she has one of lief cranky, colicky days, my entire Hie centers on cop ing. jusi yetting through the day. I resent just living for that. On good days, I have all this extra energy hut 1 can't imvkc plans. There's nol enough time between napi and feedings lo gei Minted on any satisfying work." The speaker i- a new mother, of course. Typical uf in a n y coniempiii-ai-.\ mnthc'i's, Anne gave up an interesting j<-b shortly be lure the birth of her daughter although she plans to return lo work eventually. •She has no parents i.r ivl, lives in the neighborhood in ~jje!l her. But she does haw- a husband who is willing in <barp many of ihe jiareni- ui'-i tasks. And she is living in a society which is begin ning lo accept the notion thai a woman's iiHimati' luli'illmctn is not necessari ly lo he found in the care and feeding of a liny bundle of squawks, drools and dr mands. The motherhood mystique is gradually ffoing the wa\ ot ilv; feminine mystique. And Anne, along with many other new mothers, sees this as a healthy develop meat . "At I can tail apan nine in awhile. 1 can admit to my husband that 1 sometimes resent my setup and know- that he won't blame me. It must be much worse if a woman has to pretend l hat she loves every minute of those grueling months. "My husband understand? * . what I'm going through. \Ve " attended the l.ama/e nalu- ,i ral childbirth classes to- J gelher t.\vo months before . delivery. They helped pre * pare both of us for Unmixed feelings thai child birth would bring. "If a woman doesn't prc pare herself, she's victimized by the motherhood myth. She thinks she's noi supposed to be dissatisfied. fatigued and even resentful about, the enormous demands suddenly placed on her." There are no formulas to make parenthood DIP blissful experience many expect it to he. But there are ways <n alleviate the difficulties and make room for more satisfaction. First, as Anne 'suggests, lake advantage of one of the prenatal courses offered by most large hospitals or community colleges and attend them with your husband. Try to establish a nci work of conlacls with other expectant or new mothers. This can serve as your e\ tended family offering sup port, baby-sitting exchanges arid advice. Parents after <_• h i 1 d b i r t h education (P.A.C.E.) is a relatively new group which may help to I ill this need. Initiated by Brenda Kline r .md Becky Hei'fxmnn.

P.A.C.Ii. is now training leaders in a number of states to deal with what they call "the universal new-mother prolj lenis: fatigue, a changed body, a new relationship be Uvcen husband and wife and resentment about ail I h e ? r changes."

How can 1 clean it? Is it possible to have marble polished? - Anne. DEAR ANNE - You have a tricky job ahead. Doubtless Ihe paint has sunk into the marble. All I can suggest is to try a non-oily paint remover. This also will remove any finish that was on the marble. It will then have to he polished. Stains can usually be removed by a gentle rubbing with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and ammonia, rinse with clean water and dry. Bad stains may require leaving this mixture un over niglu: after being covered with plastic wrap to keep the mixture damp. Perhaps there is a monument company in your cily that will do Ihe marble polishing. It might be well lo consul! them before even trying to remove the paint. • Polly. DEAR POLLY -.
