OMG…… I will never, ever tell my kids they’re going anywhere until the last minute. Elliott and Emmett are both on overload from the anxiety and anticipation of going to their grandparents to spend the night.
For about the last 45 minutes, Elliott has been freaking out.
Typically, we would never give them a weeks heads up to anything because we know this is going to be the likely result.
However, we were both so tired of being asked about when they will get to go, we caved. I mean they were literally constantly asking, especially Emmett. It was like he was a scratched record and kept repeating the same questions, over and over again.
Out of repetition induce insanity, I told them they would be going and when.
At the time, all I could think about was making the questions stop. However, all I accomplished was essentially trading one problem for another, equally disruptive one. Not only that, but these guys are now so stressed out that they just can’t contain themselves.
I’m telling you, the only easy part about raising kids with Autism is loving them. The rest is exhausting, at least in my experience. Of course, your mileage and experience will vary.
