~ From an Anonymous Contributor,
When my hubby is grumpy and grumbly and snapping at me, my first reaction would have been to snap back, be rude back or tell him how he ought to treat me (I know, it sounds bad writing it).
But now I use the childlike anger and I'll turn with my hands on my hips and stomp my foot and say, "You big grump bear, be nice or I'm going to feed you tuna or burn your pancakes," or something like that. I always start with a little pout and then a little smile so he sees the humor and not the angst. He always softens, smiles and rearranges his mood. But for me, I love it more! I don't hold onto the anger or frustration or resentment. Instead I feel lighter and happier! It's not always easy but I like the outcome more.
