Tonight’s visitation has been a disaster once again :(

Is it a full moon or something? 

Emmett refused to go visit his Mom today and I don’t think that’s ever happened. Elliott was excited to go visit his Mom and I don’t think that’s ever happened either.

I don’t know what’s going in with Emmett but I do know that he doesn’t want to talk about it. If push, he freaks out and the reason he does give doesn’t seem very plausible. 

  
Sadly, I didn’t get my Chipotle burrito tonight and that sucks because I worked really hard during the week and that was going to be my reward.

Instead of my one on one date with a huge burrito, Emmett and I had dinner together. It was nice and I never get to spend one on one time with Elliott or Emmett.

Right now Emmett’s sleeping next to me and he’s feeling a little better. 

Their Mom called because Elliott wanted to come home after dinner. She worked with him and he decided to stay but wants to come home before lunch tomorrow. 

We’re going to play it by ear because with any luck, he’ll be feeling differently in the morning.. Their Mother and I are working as a team to figure this out. It’s a work in progress and progress is painfully slow. 

I keep telling myself that respite is overrated anyway. 😩
