I was working from home today and just having a horrible morning. Nothing was going right and I was becoming more and more frustrated. My 2 1/2 year old daughter was home with me but luckily she fell asleep for a nap before adding to my frustration. I received a text message from my wife asking if I could pick her up early. (She rides the bus downtown for work but the first buses don't run out downtown until later so she needed a ride).
I pack up my daughter and we head out for "pick up mommy" adventure. The local Costco is right on the way to the highway and I need gas so I swing by there to find the lines 8 cars deep (selling gas for $2.29 which is unheard of in this area). As I decide to pay more and head to the station across the street, my frustration level goes through the roof as I'm waiting to turn left at a four way stop. The lady to my left wants to go straight to get in line for gas. Apparently my left turn signal does not click with her that I'm going the opposite way. She proceeds through the intersection and blocks me from making my left turn. Grrr.
So I'm finally on the road and just stewing by now. The conversation that follows is what cheers me up!
Daughter: "Daddy, we going to go get mommy! We go get ice cream" Me: "I don't think we're going to get ice cream this time sweetheart" Daughter: "I want pink ice cream. Daddy, you want pink ice cream?" Me: "No, I don't want pink ice cream but thank you." Daughter: "Ok daddy, I share mine...you can have twoooo bites" Me: "Two bites! Thank you so much" Daughter: "Yeah...you and mommy have twoooo bites, but that's it!"
I know it's really nothing but talk about just melting away my frustration level. I was smiling and just remembering all of those times when you're having a horrible day and a two minute conversation with your children can turn things around 180 degrees.
I find it hardest to remember this when she is the cause of my frustration for whatever reason. So the next time you're having a really bad day, grab your child and just start talking...chances are you'll be smiling within minutes and ready to move forward with a better day!
