Breathe and count to to 10.

If you feel like slapping your cranky 11-month old, take a breather.

If you feel like you are losing your mind trying to figure out what your sick infant daughter needs, take a breather.

If you are frustrated because nothing is going as per what you planned, take a breather.

If you feel like turning your whole house upside down from having to do EVERYTHING, take a breather.

If you feel like killing someone because your stress levels are off the roof,

Even if it was for a mere 2 minutes, TAKE A BREATHER.
You will be glad you did.
How do I know it?
Been there, done that.
Just yesterday, actually.
I am proud of myself for being brave enough to shut out Fayrah's cries and take a breather.
I forced myself to do it because I know the consequences of the actions that you did in a moment of stress and anger is not worth it at all.
So take action by taking a breather.
It will not just save your life - but those of your loved ones too.

I think most who are moms have been there. I really admire you for taking that's so hard to do when you're feeling so frustrated. Hope today goes smoothly for you and brings you lots of smiles.

Remembering the gd times ratherthan focusing mainlyon the downside does help too.
