Today I am grateful that I was able to, by and large, keep my cool with the kids today. They were both over-tired, cranky, and emotionally-volatile, and I'm glad that I was able to see their behavior for what it was and try to work with them. Yes, I melted down a little bit before bedtime, but we made it and there were smiles and hugs before they drifted off to sleep. Win-win!
Have a wonderful night!
