This morning was nothing but one gigantic meltdown and I think I already spent my ration of energy for the day. 😫
Emmett was so upset this morning because he had a tummy ache and didn’t want to go to school.
The reality is that his tummy ache is anxiety because he is so anxious about everything in his life. He genuinely loves school and isn’t getting picked on or anything like that.
Part of the issue this morning was his shoes and socks.
They just didn’t feel right and by the time I was able to fix that, we were already 15 minutes late for school.
Emmett was also worried because he has to take his shoes off at Martial Arts and putting them back on, isn’t something he can do himself.
After an hour of him melting down, I finally got him into ththe car and off we went.
I walked him into school and we spoke with his teacher about what was bothering him. You could tell he was freaking out on the inside but was trying not to show it.
I just wanted to scoop him up and bring him home but we have to work though this.
His teacher is going to work with him and if he needs me, she’ll call or send me a message.
I can’t explain how horrible it is to begin the day like this. It’s absolutely draining and all I want to do is crawl back into bed and go to sleep but I’ve got things that need done this morning.
