Living life in the carpool lane..

I’ve been dealing with these toddler temper tantrums for almost two weeks now.

There have been good days.  There have been bad days.

One thing I’ve learned about myself is that I’m actually a lot more patient than I realized I am.

Ok.. so it’s only been two weeks.  AND I know I haven’t seen the worst of it yet. 

But considering what I thought of myself prior to this phase, I’ve been doing well. 

I’ve always considered myself pretty impatient.  In most cases, I still am.

But when it comes to M and her tantrums, I seem to find a sort of calm in trying to deal with it.  I think it’s because I know that if I come into the situation with my temper flared up, it’s only going to make the situation worse.  I also know that at this point in the temper tantrum game, her tantrums don’t last very long and she is easily distracted from them. 

So at this point, I think I have it somewhat under control.

However.. like all things “toddler-related,” this will eventually change. 

I’ll return to this subject in about a month and we’ll see how well I’ve kept my cool.
