The boys have definitely had their feathers ruffled recently. It’s hard to say that it’s any one thing because they’ve had a rough couple of weeks with being sick and out of school.
I really put an enormous amount of effort into trying to provide them with everything they need, including constant accommodations, routine and guidelines where needed.
It’s been one of those day where I just can’t win for trying and I wanted to share just one example with you.
Emmett decided that he wanted grilled cheese for lunch. Grilled cheese is hit and miss with him. Sometimes he’s all about it and others it’s like asking him to eat out of the little box.
The only thing that’s consistent is that he hates the crust and I mean hates the crust.
There are times that I don’t cut the crust off until he asks because I’m trying to expand his horizons and encourage communication.
Anyway, I made him this kick ass grilled cheese sandwich and let me add that I hate cheese. I don’t even like to touch cheese but this sandwich was grilled to perfection.
I cut the crust off perfectly and all the sides looked even, just the way he likes it.
When I hand him his sandwich, he freaks out because I cut the crust off. I’m thinking to myself, are you serious Emmett?
I made the mistake of offering him the toasted pieces of crust that I removed and that turned out to be worse than cutting the crust off in the first place.
I reassure him that the universe is not going to implode and that I’ll make him a new one, leaving the crust on.
I touch more cheese and make another perfect grilled cheese sandwich but this time, I leave the crust on.
When I hand him the sandwich, he looks at me with this deer in the headlights kinda look and simply says, no thank you, I’m not hungry..
I was all like, are you serious right now? He very clearly was…
I just kissed him on the head, told him I loved him and walked away…. ☺
