It’s been a multiple meltdown Monday

      1 Comment on It’s been a multiple meltdown Monday

Deep breath… Count to 10….  Get your butt in timeout….

Those are the things I kept telling myself today as I tried my best to help the kids make it through what turned out to be a very, very challenging day. 

Elliott has had no less than 6 meltdowns today. Emmett put his name on the ballot with a few meltdowns himself as well. The most concerning for me personally though was Gavin. 


For the sake of keeping this post brief, I’ll just say that Gavin’s spent a large part of today being very frustrated with himself. 

He’s right on the edge of having a full blown stomping, kicking, screaming and self injurious meltdown. It’s been so long since I’ve seen him like this and I’m not sure what’s going on with him.

I did manage to keep my cool and spent a large part of my day, bouncing between Emmett and Elliott, trying to help calm them down. 

It’s barely 6pm and I’m completely shot…. 😴

    Rob my heart is breaking for you and the boys. Could these issues be stemming from back to school anxieties. They were having lots of fun with you this summer and now it’s back to school.
