Special needs parenting and no win scenarios

As a special needs parent, I very often face what I refer to as no win scenarios.

Lizze and I seem to bounce from one no win scenario to the next. Our current one involves the recent loss of a loved one.

This week we have the services and a funeral.

We also have 3 very special, very sensitive boys that we have to make sure stay above water and right now the seas are rough.

In order to make sure that Lizze gets to where she needs to be and ensure the boys are sheltered from the emotional storm that is about to hit. While our solution is less than ideal, it’s a solution that allows for Lizze to be with her family in the morning and attend the funeral.

I’m going to stay behind tomorrow and take care of Emmett and get Elliott and possibly Gavin from school.

Lizze will likely be gone for most of the day and that would be really hard to make arrangements for Emmett for that long. Lizze and I figured that by doing things this way, my Mom will be in a better position to help us later on in the week, when we need the break.

My Mom would push herself to watch Emmett for us but we know what that would do to her. This way she will be rested and hopefully in a better place to help us later on.

I’ve told Lizze that I will do whatever I have to in order to help her through this difficult time.

My part for tomorrow will be staying with the boys so she can spend as much time as she needs with her family.

Sometimes you have to go with the best of the bad ideas. 🙁
