Elliott had a really good morning but Emmett’s was pretty rough. He had a pretty massive meltdown over some confusion about when we are supposed to sign his homework folder.
He was thinking that since it’s Tuesday, we should be signing for Tuesday.
We tried explaining to him that we don’t sign for Tuesday until he comes home from school and we go through his folder. I explained that we signed Monday’s spot and will sign for Tuesday, when he gets home from school today.
He was so freaked out, I had to call the school so they could verify that Lizze and I were correct, and Emmett could relax. Even that didn’t help him feel better about this whole folder thing.
This is pretty straight forward logic, and I’m a bit surprised that Emmett was struggling with the concept. What this tells me is that his reason for being this upset has less to do with his folder and more to do with something else. What the something else is, remains a mystery.
That said, we did survive the morning and both boys got off to school on time. ☺
