And *poof* it was gone.

It happened in a second.
And it was over.
"Stop!"
To my darling boy that I had in my arms as he was wiggling around while I was trying to dress him.
Since he may be used to it *ack!* it didn't stop or faze him.
Me - as soon as it was out, I knew I'd blown it.
But since it was just one liiittle holler it didn't count, right?
No, my ticker is reset.
Ugh.

I love the idea of the ticker. I should probably do that too. Some days I feel like yelling is al that I get done. Sucha hard habit to break.

Hey just wanted you to know you are not alone in this, I too struggle with it and have been battleing it! Thanks for being so transparent, it is forcing me even more to look at the way I speak to my family.

You're doing great! For me, I'd probably have to have a ticker for each 30 minutes I don't raise my voice.
I think any attempt to change is a victory in and of itself.
Ánimo!
