Moving too fast?

Tonight I was running around trying to get my boys ready for bed. They seemed to have different ideas and started jumping around and throwing fits about pajamas and brushing their teeth. I started to lose it and get irritated they were not behaving. I had to go to the laundry room to switch a load and it gave me enough time to slow down to think how can I put this in the model? So I started to question what am I thinking or what was I thinking when the kids were going ape shit and I started feeling annoyed. It’s almost like I couldn’t truest figure out what I had been thinking because I was moving too fast in the chaos of the night to even know what I was thinking. Any tips on slowing down and using the model in the moment?
