Gavin’s driving me crazy today O_o

Let me begin this post by qualifying what I mean when I say that Gavin’s driving me crazy today.

Gavin isn’t doing anything wrong.  His behavior just fine and he’s still being very helpful. 

These are all amazing things and I’m grateful for each and every one of them.  The problem I’m running into is that Gavin’s having one of those days where he’s walking into things, dropping things all over the floor and breaking stuff. 

He was making a baked potato for lunch and when he pulled one out of the bag, he ended up dumping them all over the kitchen floor. 

Earlier today he was using my favorite flashlight to look for something under the couch.  He stood up and dropped my flashlight on the floor, picked it up and dropped it again.  The happens a few times before I just told him to put it down. 


A bit later, he walked by the mantel and was dragging his shoulder down the front of it as he walked.  The result was him knocking Christmas decorations off said mantel and onto the floor, breaking them beyond repair. 

These are just a few of the things that have already happened today. 

He’s not doing anything on purpose and each one of these things are accidents.  I’ve no doubt that he’s frustrated with himself as well. 

I’m also not angry with him either. 

That being said, I just can’t keep ahead of him today.  I’m having to micromanage his movements and constantly remind him to be paying attention to what’s going on around him. 

Frankly, this is driving me crazy because it’s like living through the movie Pure Luck.

It seems like anything that can possibly happen is happening. 

I’m just really frustrated but I’m not angry.  I feel horrible for him and I’m making sure he knows I’m not angry..
