Primitive Brain and my kids

I have little kids… toddlers
As I hear Brooke talk about our primitive brains are like toddlers, I laugh.
I now look at them and I see my primitive brain.
It makes me love them and my primitive brain even more.
Both do so well when I am loving and kind.
Neither are testing me.
They are just being themselves.
Doing what they do.
So much more joy.
So much more love.

What is crazy to think is that the love and joy were always there.
They were crowded out by some other thinkings and feelings.
The energy was always there.
Now I feel it more.

Here is my question.

Can we have two models running concurrently? Or is a one at a time thing?
Like being upset with something/someone and feeling love about it or them at the same time?
