Lizze let me sleep in this morning 🙂 She’s not feeling well so I know it wasn’t easy. Thanks honey.
Gavin is already struggling today. I was up for 15 minutes and already had a Gavin situation to deal with. It’s going to be one of those days. I can already feel it.
Gavin “seems” to be unable to remember anything anymore. I say “seems” because I’m not convinced this is not manipulation or his way of trying to avoid the consequences of his actions. I find it difficult to believe that he conveniently doesn’t remember if it means he did something wrong. It feels more like manipulation to me. What really makes it tough is that we don’t punish for things outside of his control. I’m sure he’s picked up on this by now. My concern is that he may be using that to his advantage.
If your sitting their thinking to yourself, “what a horrible thing to say about your own child”, you simply don’t know Gavin. I’m not putting him down by saying these things. These are simply the facts. He has a very extensive history of manipulation. We’re left wondering what we are supposed to do because we aren’t sure what’s what with Gavin. We have a feeling but nothing concrete. So all we can do is look at each situation individually and make a judgement call.
Unless of course, someone wants to give me an “easy” button.
