Gavin had a major meltdown this morning. We knew it was just a matter of time before it happened. He had already come close about 3 times before the meltdown finally occurred.
The meltdown finally happened after Gavin was caught telling his brothers to keep something a secret from Lizze and I.
Upon questioning Gavin, he flipped out.
The self-injury began shortly after that. There was no question as to what Gavin had done because Lizze and I both witnessed it first hand. We simply gave Gavin a chance to explain himself.
What Gavin wanted the boys to hide from us was not even a big deal. However, we can’t allow Gavin to persuade his brothers to keep secrets.
Apparently, a few years ago, Gavin tried to clean his windows with his own spit. Why he just now became concerned with this is a mystery, yet to be revealed. Anyway, he came downstairs and asked for baby bleach wipe and became very secretive about it when asked.
Emmett said something about spit and then Gavin hushed him and led him away, telling him not to tell us about it.
That’s what got Gavin in trouble, not that fact that he spit in his windows a few years ago. I have no idea why he was so upset by this, especially now. My guess is the memory just popped into his head and he was either embarrassed or affraid of getting in trouble.
Gavin is a mystery, wrapped in an enigma and covered in secret sauce.
