Stress Relief for Me!

 Sometimes my kids stress me out. I mean, maybe a little more often than sometimes! You know when they can't stop clinging or whining and it seems like you can't take it anymore? I have the tendency to yell and be mean but I know that yelling is not the answer, so what do I do?

She's so sweet and loving most times, but there are so many of these moments as well!

 I put on some good 'ol classical music! It was like magic today. As soon as I felt like the kid's behavior (which was very typical of 1 and 2 year olds) getting on my nerves I turned on Pandora and typed in Antonio Vivaldi. My 2 year old daughter started dancing around the livingroom and my 1year old boy starting playing with some toys. I felt so uplifted by the music and so did the kids. It was wonderful! I make sure to play it pretty loud so we can all enjoy Vivaldi's Four Seasons when it comes up on the playlist.
