Yep, I have 3 of them too.

Quoting Barronbaby:

Get it done as quick as possible.... getting 3 Lo's out the door and into a store is a lot of work.

I voted choice one but I would do any of those depending on the situation.

My kiddos very seldom have melt downs but when they do I stay calm and talk to them and usually they calm done :)

In public that is but at home it's meltdown central but I still stay calm because I find that the more you get upset the more they do:)
