Last night the boys went to have dinner with their Mom and Grandma. It’s a two hour break, every other Wednesday and it was a disaster. The boys were home about an hour after they left.
Emmett was having a rough day.
For some reason he was really, really anxious before he even got into the car. He was overwhelmed and already a donkey on the edge.
Grandma and I calmed him down and he ended up going off without a issue after that.
At some point, Emmett got upset again and wanted to come home.
I was at the grocery store while they were returning home and battling troubles of my own. I had half a cart full of groceries, a long line behind and the boys on their way home.. For some reason my card wouldn’t work and I ended up having to pay for the groceries with funds I hadn’t planned on using. This was an immediate fix but will lead to long term issues.
I hurried home to meet the boys, who were in a much better mood at that point. They helped carry in and put away the groceries, while I talked to Mom and Grandma.
All I can figure is that Emmett’s just not in a good place overall at the moment. Nothing happened tonight that should have upset him.
Generally speaking, the Wednesday night dinners usually go pretty well.
Hopefully, this was just a fluke and next time will be better. I can’t really blame Gavin for wanting to come home, change and get cleaned up. Emmett on the other hand, remains a mystery.
I’m sorry their visit was cut short because I really want this to work.
