Elliott’s had an emotionally turbulent day

Elliott has had a really rough day.  He’s been laser focused on collecting all the power stars on Super Mario 64 DS.

Last night he collected the 150th power star and I thought, heck yeah Elliott, way to go.

Turns out this would be the proverbial straw that broke the camels back. Elliott was convinced that there were 2 more stars and that all the information, from both Nintendo and the rest of the Internet were wrong.

There was absolutely no convincing him otherwise.

We spent quite a bit of time trying to work through this tonight. He finally went to sleep but I’m telling you it was a rough night, full of emotional roller coaster ride and tears of frustration. 

I’m praying that tomorrow is a better day.
