Annabelle is one of my fit-throwers. The conversation went like this after one such incident today:

Me: What is the right choice: throwing a fit or self-control?

A: Self-control.

Me: Right. Do you know why?

A: No.

Me: Because the Bible tells us that one of the Fruits of the Spirit is self-control. So when we choose self-control instead of a fit, that's one way to show that we are a lover of Jesus.

Annabelle nods in understanding.

Me: Do you want me to tell you a secret?

With eager eyes, she nods again.

Me: Momma messes up and loses self-control a lot.

A: Well, that's no secret!
