My frustration level is through the roof today

I’m frustrated with Gavin today, but it’s not really his fault. He was cleaning out the ferrets litter box, and didn’t pay attention to what I had told him, and he ended up breaking the cage. 

It’s possible I’ll be able to fix it, but that’s not really the point. 

If he’d simply listened to my words, this could have been avoided. While I’m frustrated, I’m not angry. This is one of the many challenges I face as an Autism parent/special needs parent. 

The reality is that Gavin my not have heard me. He could have heard but then forgot. He may have also simply been impuslive. 

All I know is that this isn’t fun, and after five nights of major sleep loss. My patience is wearing thin, and I’m so exhausted. I’m not in the mood for pretty much anything at this point.
