Meltdown...

This morning didn't go quite as smoothly as yesterday. My Caden has begun his yearly meltdown. Last year day one was fine as well, but a couple of days later it started. This year first day was fine, but today...

"My tummy hurts...I don't like school because I miss you when I'm at school...Howcome you have to go to school when you're tummy hurts...Why do they make kids go to school...Ow..." I could go on. I hate it because it absolutely kills me. I just wanted to scoop him up and say "You don't have to go, it's OK." Fortunately, I've learned enough in my years of parenting to know that would only make the problem worse. He'll be OK, it's just heartbreaking to watch.
