After a really long and really crappy day we finally got a small break. Emmett went to Lizze’s parents for the night which means we will gets some MUCH NEEDED sleep. We sent Gavin to my parents because he isn’t doing very well (I’ll post about that later) and spent some quality time with Elliott. Elliott just breaks my heart because he is just the sweetest kid in the world but he is stuck in a really bad situation. He is our VERY high functioning Aspie. Most people would never know anything was wrong. Elliott is stuck between to siblings that are always struggling. He sometimes gets lost in the shuffle. I do my best to prevent that from happening but at times it happens and it breaks my heart to know that happens. He takes abuse from both Emmett and Gavin despite our best attempts to shield him….
Tonight was Elliott’s night. Lizze and I took him to iHOP and then to see “Gnomeo & Juliet” in 3D. He had a really good time and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE spending time with him. I only wish we could do this more often for him. I want to do this for each of the kids as well. Just get them away and let them be kids….
