You know it’s bad when your child’s meltdown sets off the alarm

This morning has been filled with screaming.  In fact, it’s been so bad that it’s actually setting off the glass break sensors in the house, triggering an alarm..

Emmett’s spent the morning, melting down over any and every conceivable thing.  As I suggested in last night’s post, there’s going to be quite a bit of fallout from yesterday’s trip to the dentist.

At the moment, I’m snuggling on the couch with Mr. Emmett, under a really heavy weighted blanket. I’m hoping that this will help Emmett to experience some sensory input that will provide him with enough comfort to reduce the stress and anxiety, that’s built up from yesterday. 

His meltdowns have been so loud and so high pitched that he’s set of the glass break sensors throughout the house. These are sensors designed to monitor for the sound of breaking glass and it’s not that easy to set them off with with just ones voice.

If and when I get Emmett settled down, we are going to have to focus on getting the house ready for tomorrow’s visit from Vivint.
