We don’t have too many meltdowns with Matt any more but there are times that they do happen. Usually, there is no warning and no real reasoning. We had one of those today.
I kept smelling something and I soon realized that it was Matt. The meltdown started when I went to check his undies. I could tell it was an accident because it wasn’t bad. He got upset no matter how much I tried to reassure him. He was not going to listen. I finally got him to the bathroom. I’m sure it could have been on America’s Funniest Videos. This 5’0″ tall Mom trying to coax her 4’2 1/2″ tall, 11 yr old son to go to the bathroom and change his poopy underwear.
I got his clothes off but made the horrible mistake of not taking off the socks and shoes first. How dare I make such an oversight. He made sure to take them off and fling the socks at me. It was then that I shut the bathroom door and let him throw his fit. After him realizing that no one was paying attention to his fit anymore he finally got over it. I was able to go in and get him washed up and redressed. The meltdown only took about 20 minutes. Just as I got the last shoe on, his Granna came and picked him up for his visitation weekend. Luckily, he wasn’t too mad. I at least got a hug out of him before he left. He’ll come home on Monday afternoon.
Rachel’s dad called back and changed his mind. He will be getting her this weekend, after all. She’ll go tomorrow morning. She is feeling much better. I still want to strangle her father but obviously I won’t say a word. Telling him that he made her cry, when he asked, seemed to be enough.
I’m feeling a bit better but still really weak. My throat doesn’t hurt but it’s real itchy. My dad is having a huge fish fry on Sunday so I’m just hoping that I can be up to doing that.
I took my cat in to get fixed this morning. I get her back in the morning. I miss her so stinking much. It’s amazing how much you miss something that likes to annoy the heck out of you…lol. X
