"Someone once told me, “you’re kids aren’t having a tough time, they’re going through a tough time.” I’ve kept this parenting gem in the back of my mind for years, frequently coming back to it when meltdowns happen. It reminds me to be their guide and help navigate them through whatever is going on.

This morning was no different. A power struggle about clothes led to a full on tantrum from my three year old. My knee jerk reaction was to become annoyed because we were late going to school, but slowing down, sitting him on my lap, and slowly talking through helped immensely. Turned out this little guy missed his grandparents, who left here a few weeks ago. Hubs and I decided that a mental health day was in order for the little guy, and this is where he is right now. While I don’t have any appointments today, I now have a buddy to run errands with. Sounds like a win to me.
