I think we have all heard this saying before. I’m going to apply this to my life today in order to explain exactly how my day has gone.
Elliott is quite clearly not feeling well. Emmett is also obviously not feeling well. The combination of those two being sick at the same time is extremely volatile.
These guys have been at each others throats all flippin day long.
Gavin on the other hand has been melting down today. He smashed Elliott’s hand a little bit ago because Elliott was reaching for a toy and Gavin didn’t want him to. The toy wasn’t Gavin’s and hurting someone is unacceptable. When Gavin was corrected he freaked out, launching into a huge meltdown, and eventually earning himself oatmeal for dinner.
Life is challenging on the good days but holy crap, when these guys are sick, all he’ll breaks loose.
There needs to be a rule that our kids should never have to be sick on top of everything else they are dealing with.
If they do get sick, one at a time would be a hellava lot more manageable.
