Put on your cape!
When little man isn't feeling up to par (like this week, I think maybe he's teething?) I swoop him up, walk around the house and look at pictures on the wall and tell him stories. Granted he's only 13 weeks old and has no clue what I'm saying, but the movement relaxes him and the stories remind me that it's all part of mommyhood. When he settles down I feel accomplished, like I actually know what I'm doing (hah!). That confidence goes a long way, and nobody can be angry while wearing their mommy cape :)
