So much for my break :(

The boys have visitation with their Mom tonight and that means I get the next 24 hours off. 

Unfortunately, while I was in my room writing this afternoon, Emmett walked and told me he doesn’t want to go. 

I don’t think Emmett has ever not wanted to go to see his Mom. 

His not wanting to go, turned into refusing to go and that led to the meltdown we’ve been having on/off for the last 90 minutes. 😳

I spoke with his Mom about what was going on and we both agreed not to force him. He freaked out when asked if he would speak with her on the phone.  


I’m at a complete loss. 

In an even weirder twist, Elliott is actually excited to go see his Mom. Elliott’s been the one that has not wanted to go for the past year and now he and Emmett have flip flopped.

Emmett won’t say why he doesn’t want to go and talking about it gets him hysterical. 

I’m wondering if maybe he’s not feeling well? That would explain his demeanor at least. 

Autism can truly be a bitch sometimes because Emmett has a difficult time expressing himself, especially if he’s not feeling well. 

So much for my break.  I guess we’ll try again in 2 weeks.  😫

Truthfully, it’s not like I was going to be doing anything anyways and I’m happy to be there for my Emmett.
