Emmett had a rough morning. Everything was just fine until it was time to leave and he had to put his coat on. This time, he was happy to wear his winter coat…at least at first.
When he picked up his school bag and tried to put it over his shoulder, he realized that his winter coat wouldn’t allow for him to carry his bag the way he was accustomed to carrying it. That was what triggered the meltdown.
The moment he realized this, he ripped his coat off and refused to have it out back on.
He was really freaking out and it took quite some time to calm him down and help him adjust to carrying his bag in a different manner.
When we got to school and they began to unload out of the car, Emmett lost it again.
He couldn’t get his bag the way he wanted it and Elliott had already walked into the building. Emmett was screaming in the parking lot for Elliott to wait for him. I pointed out to Emmett that Gavin was right here and waiting to walk with him and that helped a little bit.
I hate mornings like this. Actually, most mornings are like this, so I suppose I just hate mornings in general now.
Truthfully, as hard as it is on Lizze and I, it’s got to be even harder on a Emmett. When we get really, really frustrated, we do our best to keep that in mind.
