How do you keep your cool!?

When your child does something wrong, how do you keep your cool? I have no patience and my two small girls are teaching me how to stay calm. lol The other day my daughter got into nail polish and IDK since i thought i had it out of reach and was put away.. but my little dennis the menace manage to get it and dump it all over her toy box, feet, hands, carpet, bed, and walls!! I was so PISSED!!! My first inital reaction was to go over yank the nail polish out of her hands and scream!! but thats not what happened, i just counted to 10 and took a deep breath only to hear her say "Look mommy, PRETTY!!!" haha i just thought it was funny and we spent 2 hrs cleaning up but the carpet is still a mess but everything else is fine!...

  • You did the right thing....deep breaths! It's hard but them being little and innocent right now is the fun stuff. It gets harder as they get older.
