This has been the day from hell. Thankfully, Elliott is feeling better but he and Emmett have been at each others throats all goddamn day.
I swear they are setting out to drive Lizze and I crazy. A large portion of the problem resides with Emmett. He has been in a really weird place for the last few days. He’s not getting along with anyone right now.
There has been more screaming today than in the entire series of Scream movies. I mean, it just never stops. If the slightest thing goes wrong or the tiniest thing is out of place, Emmett just freaks out.
The combination of Elliott whining and Emmett screaming is something that would break even the most difficult people to interrogate. Although it does border on torture, so I don’t know how well that would go over.
Truth be told, by the end of the afternoon, I was ready to give them whatever they wanted as long as the screaming and whining stopped.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids but they can scream and whine with the best of them. Elliott’s whining is related, at least in part, to his extreme anxiety. Emmett’s screaming is most likely related to his speech and language delays as well as overstimulation. It’s not their fault but that really doesn’t make it any easier to cope with.
