Every time I do get angry (cause let’s admit it all parents get angry and frustrated but it is about the way that they handle the situation that counts) I kind of see myself as the woman version of the Hulk.  So, I admit I do get upset and frustrated and 3 out of 10 times I find myself yelling at my gorgeous girls as they do know how to press my buttons too. As they got older, they also got wiser and better at tricking…
