Picking our battles and celebrating the victories

I wish that Elliott and Emmett’s would get along today.  Some of the problem is Emmett’s button pushing and some of the problem is Elliott’s very limited threshold for frustration. Putting the two together makes for a very volatile day. 

They have actually done fairly well this evening,  only having one major blow out between them.

Elliott finished his homework in record time and Emmett got ready for bed with minimal headache. 

I’m making a conscience choice to try and focus on the victories,  even if they are small ones. Having said that,  despite my trying day, we have a couple victories to celebrate. 

You know,  Elliott got off to school without so much as a whimper today and that’s awesome.  Emmett even allowed me to take Elliott to school without throwing a giant fit because he wasn’t going with me. 

This may not seem like much to some people but we take every victory we can.  🙂

So happy to hear of your victories. I totally "get" the button pushing. I have twin boys who are about to turn 6. Jacob has Autism and Brandon is neurotypical. Jacob LOVES to push Brandon's buttons to get a reaction out of him. This usually ends up in what seems like never ending battles in our house.

I totally understand. It can be exhausting.
