Sometimes it's due to a meltdown or misbehavior on their part, but sometimes I just have too much going on in one moment and they won't leave me alone and I can feel myself getting upset.
I started a thread the other day about how sometimes I'd plop my toddler in front of the TV when I was making dinner, and I did that for this reason. I just had too hard of a time getting everything together and having a toddler hanging on my while I was working would start to get to me and wear my patience thin.
How do you handle those times where you feel like you're going to lose your temper?
