There will always be a point when you are going to be stretched too thin. It doesn’t matter how well you are with time management. It will just happen.
Today, the baby decided to act up his usual tantrums. Add in the equation our new puppy who doesn’t want to be trained. I am literally on the verge of wanting to scream at everybody, both puppy and human. And I did lose my cool. I slapped Geoff on the hand and kept the puppy inside his cage. I quickly handed the baby to his nanny so that I can cool down a bit, which was probably the best decision I made this day.
I hate it when I shout at the baby because I know that he is on this stage when he absorbs everything like a sponge. He won’t know that it is an act of discipline yet, especially when he is in the middle of a tantrum. However, I am not the type of person who can forever keep my cool.
Days like these are really challenging. I won’t deny by saying that I hate it, but I am not looking forward to it either. I would say that it is wisest to choose my battles, and this is one of those that I will just go out and get a breather.
