Teresa is the filling in the sandwich family of Rose, Teresa, and Norman. As the filling, she often gets squeezed between Rose and Norman. Teresa knew that Rose needed help after her stroke, but Rose didn't think so at all. Thus, Teresa's efforts to help her mother are often unappreciated. It's not easy blending the furnishings of two households or the personalities of two strong women.
Norman is busy establishing his own identity, and he can be rebellious. Teresa understands this, because she's a free spirit, too. She just hopes Norman will grow up without exploding.
Teresa recently divorced, so she's trying to establish a new identity for herself, too. Her work as a hairdresser gives her a creative outlet and pays the bills.
