Last night, I upset Gavin because I wouldn’t allow him to use a jeans day pass that he claims he left at school.
We told him that if he brings it home today and we see it, he can use it next week when he returns to school. He was pretty upset that we wouldn’t allow him to use a pass that we truthfully don’t know actually exists.
Lizze and I explained to him that this is why trust is so important and this is can happen when there is no trust left because it’s been broken too many times.
My hope was that he would learn a lesson from this…
However, this morning while taking his meds, he dropped at least one pill on the floor and I can’t help but wonder if that was done to get back at me for the jeans day pass thing.
Gavin dropping his pills is something that he’d been doing to Lizze specifically. Truthfully, I don’t know what he gets out of it but he’s getting something because he was doing it purposefully.
We addressed this by putting his pills on a plate or in a little cup.
This prevented him from pulling his hand away as we were dumping the pills into his hand.
While this addressed part of the problem, he soon began spitting his pills into his water bottle, only to be discovered by us later. He even spit pills through the straw on his water bottle and claimed it was an accident.
So you see, this wouldn’t be the first time he’d done this and fact that this happened the morning after the jeans day pass thing, lends me to think he was trying to get back at me for not allowing him to wear jeans today.
With that said, it’s also entirely possible that dropping his pill today was an accident because his hands shake.
My gut tells me this was him trying to get some sorta revenge. However, guilt soon follows because what if it was an accident?
There’s never a dull moment here.
