Enough with the meltdowns!! Day #12
As if it isn't bad enough that he is having them day and night, he had to have one this morning. Not how I wanted to start my day. I want off of this merry-go-round of craziness!
I don't know what to do with him. He is fine at school. I talked to the teacher this morning. She says her only problem with him is the echoing what she says or what comes over the loudspeaker. The kids think she is telling them to do something, when it was actually him saying it.
At home he has had meltdowns 3 nights in a row over a stupid movie, Hugo. I rented it Saturday night and we watched half of it before he fell asleep. I returned it Sunday and come Sunday night he starts in. "I want Hugo, I want Hugo! Go get it right now!" Same thing Monday and Tuesday night. It goes on for at least an hour each time. (By the way, I offered to go buy the movie Monday and he told me no.) I bought it this morning, I am done talking about Hugo!
This morning the school had a special breakfast for the kids that did well on AR tests this year. I went with Jordan because parents were invited. Since I was going to the school, I told him he could ride with me. He has known for 3 days now that I was taking him. He got up at 5:40 this morning and told me he wanted to ride the bus, so I said okay. Come time to go to the bus stop, he decides to ride with me. I knew it was going to happen! After the bus had gone, he starts in, "I want to ride the bus, I want to ride the bus! Call the bus driver and tell her to come back!" Of course the shoes came off, a meltdown is not complete without flying shoes! I barely got him in the car to go to school and had to listen to his mouth the whole way there. I went and talked to his teacher, which really made him mad. Nothing going on there, he saves it all for me.
What am I going to do with him? He is having so many everyday, throwing shoes, hitting, kicking, pushing, yelling, slamming doors, repeating the same thing over and over and over. He is living in time-out. If he does not stop soon I am going to go crazier!
