After this mornings drama and Elliott’s flat out refusal to comply with getting ready for school, Lizze was finally able to work here magic.
She spent some time with him this morning and was able to talk him into getting ready.
It was my job to keep Emmett occupied while she did that.
I don’t know why Elliott has been like this lately. There’s nothing going on at school that has him upset or afraid. He’s just being difficult, at least that’s how it seems.
I’m sure it’s not that simple. I mean, nothing in our lives is simple. I will say that this is getting really old, really fast and I would like to figure out what, if anything is behind this.
Thankfully, after he decided to cooperate, he was dressed and out the door in less than 15 minutes.
Hopefully, we can do a little better tomorrow.

I had six months of not getting my 8 year old son to school on time – it was just after I quit my job of 22 years – just couldn't do it all anymore
The physical and mental challenges of getting him going – the shut downs and aggression are really draining
I have had great support from the school (with an intellectually impaired diagnosis just delivered) and PDDNOS (on the autism spectrum) diagnosis when he was 7 1/2
Not to mention the anxiety my now 12 year old daughter goes through because it looks like he gets more attention than her
