Things got better after the massive meltdown

I was up with Elliott for most of the night. He was dealing with some congestion and doesn’t cope well with that feeling. 

He woke up about 1am and we moved downstairs so he could more easily sit up. 

It took him a bit to get moving for school but once he did, he was feeling much better. Emmett on the other hand, was in a foul mood this morning and my ears are still ringing from all the screaming. 

After a relatively major meltdown, he seemed to feel better and we were able to move on with our morning. 

Both boys are currently in good moods and in school.. Unfortunately, it’s Gavin’s turn to not feel well. 

It’s going to be a long day…..

    I keep wondering if there would be a way for you and Lizze to get more of a break? Like with government-funded caretaking, even once or twice a week. I know the boys grandparents see them but it just doesn’t seem like it’s enough.
