It doesn't happen all the time, but it happens more often than it should. I tend to me a some-what angry person and when I get mad about other stuff (DH, work, that kind of stuff) my patience runs really, really thin, and then I get frustrated and don't have patience to deal with my two year old. I am SUPER lucky because she is really, really good most of the time, but when I am having a bad day, then SHE has a bad day I literally have to lock myself in my room (leave her with DH) and just yell into a pillow, or cry, or even just simply be alone. It breaks her heart and she knocks on my door and cries, which makes me feel so much worse.
It is just really hard sometimes and I don't yell at her, and I don't spank her, so when she is acting up I just.. kind of lose it.
What do you guys do in situations like this? How do you stay clam and patient with them? Is it better to try to talk and get mad or to just walk away? :-(
