The day is steadily going downhill. Gavin is being, well, Gavin. He’s not really doing anything wrong. It’s just that he gets saying everything that he’s thinking, with no regard to who is around him or how little and impressionable their ears are.
Do any of you have this problem?
For example, this morning Gavin announced to everyone how much he just loves comfy pants. Not a big deal, right? Right!
However, he literally wouldn’t stop talking about it. It got to the point where Emmett decided that he wants comfy pants as well. Again, not a huge deal, right? Right!
The problem was that Emmett’s pants weren’t clean and because we couldn’t produce them, he lost it.
Emmett’s already in a bad place because he’s in so much pain and now he’s upset because Gavin has his comfy pants on now and he doesn’t.
After the whole ordeal was over with, I found myself quite frustrated because the whole thing was avoidable. We made Gavin go upstairs and change back into regular pants.
Gavin lost the right to wear his comfy pants outside of his bedroom, awhile ago, because of how much easier it is to um…expose himself.
I’ll just leave it at that.
He knew that he wasn’t allowed to wear them but he made the choice to do not anyway. Not only that but he made this huge deal about how amazing they were, bringing them to Emmett’s attention to them and subsequently creating a demand for something that we didn’t have on hand.
Was it Gavin’s fault? Only in the sense that the whole thing transpired as a result of him doing something that he knew he wasn’t supposed to do.
What was his motivation? Who the hell knows.I know that I don’t.
I also don’t know why he would do any of that in the first place. It was like he was purposefully drawing attention to the pants that he had changed into.
Maybe that was his way of testing the limits and seeing if we would say something to him and make him change or if we would decide not to pick that battle and let it slide.
All I know for sure is that the day is now sliding right into the crapper.
You know how you can get aftermarket parts for your car or whatever? I would love for someone to make an invention that can provide a filter for those who need it. Gavin is one of those people who need it.
Do you know anyone that could use a filter? Do tell….
