We shipped off Gavin to Lizze’s parents tonight. Gavin needed a break and quite frankly, so did we. Elliott is spending the night at my parents house. He was SO excited to go.
As crazy as it sounds, I really struggle with Elliott not being home. I’m ok with Gavin gone because he was driving everyone crazy and so it was good for everyone involved to get a break. Elliott, while frustrating, at times as well, is just different for me. Elliott doesn’t stress me out the way Gavin’s behaviors can. Call me what you will but I’m just being honest. I love Gavin but his behaviors take a toll on me and sometimes we need time apart.
Emmett has so far slept straight through the night, for the first time in a very long time. The stress level in the house has dropped and it seems to be helping Emmett to sleep better.
Hopefully the boys are sleeping well at the grandparent’s tonight and I look forward to seeing them tomorrow sometime.
