A massive meltdown set the tone for the entire day and that sucks

It’s been one of those days where I’m not sure how we’ve made it this far. lol For the first time in awhile, Emmett almost didn’t make it to school because of sensory processing issues.

Please God, help Emmett survive the day

I didn’t sleep worth a damn last night. I managed to fall asleep shortly before the alarm went off. Lizze sent me back to bed because she’s amazing. Next thing I know, I’m being drafted into a massive battle with Emmett, who’s refusing to go to school again. This was the worst morning he’s had …
