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.
They went to visit nearby family and Gavin ended up kneeling in dog pee. Needless to say, he was none to happy about that and so he 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.
I’m wondering if he’s not only overwhelmed by everyday life but school is starting soon and Tuesday nights therapy session was a really tough one.
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.
