Keep your cool
How do you keep your cool? Today I am tired, it's rainy, and there are a lot of things going not quite right that are putting me in a horrible mood. I just snapped at Mason and I feel awful about it. He wasn't necessarily doing anything wrong, just being a normal 4 year old and asking the same question OVER AND OVER AND OVER because I wasn't giving him the answer he wanted. I get it, he's four.... it's obnoxious, but it's part of life and part of his developmental stage, I certainly shouldn't have reacted the way I did. I apologized to him, and he's over it but now I'm having mommy guilt for the entire thing.
When you are having a bad day and the kids are getting on your last nerve, how do you keep your cool and remember it's not their fault?
