Gavin had a massive meltdown and it sucked

Lizze and I have been keeping a close eye on Gavin. We always keep a close eye on Gavin but more so now because of his medication changes. Gavin had another meltdown yesterday evening over something that wasn’t a big deal, at least not to us. Gavin is always asking for ways he can help …

Emmett’s Day: From Meltdowns to More Meltdowns

I mentioned previously that Emmett had a rough morning. His morning was actually going quite well until he realized that Elliott was going to be home sick.

Today has been full of meltdowns thus far. Emmett is in a horrible mood this afternoon, and when he’s in a horrible mood, everyone around him knows it.  The weather is shitty and there isn’t much that can be done outside today.  I was up with Elliott for most of the night because he was …
