Man alive, it was a tough morning. Several meltdowns, lots of screaming, impulsiveness and lack of cooperation, made for a challenging start to the day.
I was really, really, really frustrated with my kids because I could seem to get anywhere with them and they needed to get to school.
Frankly, I don’t really even know why there was so much going wrong this morning.
The boys were wanting to bring things to school that I didn’t feel they should be bringing and Elliott especially, wasn’t happy with that.
In Emmett’s world however, that’s exactly how the world works. He takes consistency to a new level.
In my house, fair isn’t about everyone having the exact same amount, of the exact same thing. It’s about making sure I get everyone what they need in order for them to be the best they can be.
Autism is tough to work with and I can find myself very frustrated by a lot of this stuff but it’s just part of who my kids are.
Life is a work in progress and on days like today, I make sure to hit the reset button, so I can help my kids sorta start over after school.
Hopefully, school is going well and the boys are doing better.
