Didn't have a meltdown free Christmas

Well we didn't have a meltdown free Christmas. My son and I went over to my mom's apartment for dinner. He was laying on the couch so I asked him if he wanted to go lay in meme's bed. So he went to lay down. He rolled over to go to sleep then all of a sudden he dashes out of bed into the living room. He is crying and everyone is looking at him. My mom had invited some friends of hers over too. He kept asking to go home. Figured this out after minutes of crying. I took him for a walk outside, came back in and he fell asleep on my lap. 10 minutes later he asks to go home again so my sister finally takes us home.

My daughter had a whopper of a meltdown today. Thankfully, we stayed home for Christmas day and didn't have anyone over. Her meltdown was due to holding it together yesterday and then us attempting to open presents with her this morning. It lasted 45 minutes at least and she took a nap afterwards from being so tired from it. Scratched herself up too :(

Sorry things weren't what you hoped. Glad he was able to tell you he wanted to go home though!

We weren't meltdown free either and I'm sure we are in for one more. I'm procrastinating bedtime in hopes of him putting himself to bed. He's laying on the couch doing his nose air blowing tick. Seriously sounds like he's blowing snot rockets. Defiantly my least favorite of his ticks.

I'm sorry!! No fun.

Our Christmas eve went ok. No major meltdowns. He played in a quiet bed room for most of the time. We have another gathering today that I'm more worried about. He hasn't opened any presents but has played with a few.

Another thing but not Autism related - One of my friends really sucks at being a friend. She asked me how my Christmas was, if i got any good presents, if my sister got me anything and if my soon to be ex spent the day with my family. I said no to everything. She said i am so sorry then told me all the presents she got anther kids made her breakfast in bed. I'm in the early stages of getting a divorce. I don't really want to hear that stuff.

 Oh boy  =(

I know if one more person got in D's face asking about his gifts, what he ate, how are you, blah, blah..I was gonna have the meltdown! Too much commotion for all of us I guess.
