Last night Mj had another crying episode. This one lasted for 2 hours. It started about an hour before bedtime. The trigger seemed to be that he couldn’t figure out what snack he wanted…but I’m still not sure what it was. After 15 min of him trying to choose a snack, he finally ate something and seemed to be ok. A few minutes after that he started crying again. I comforted him the best way that I could and told him everything will be ok. He went to bed crying. He kept saying “but I’m sad”. We talked about his birthday parties (he had one at school too) and the awesome weekend we had…He was still crying. I hugged him and sang. He was still crying. I continuously asked him what was wrong and massaged his head. He was still crying. I turned on his favorite show. He was still crying. By this time it’s way passed his bedtime. My husband decided to try. He lied in Mj’s bed for about 30 min. They both watched a little of the basketball game and he calmed down a little bit but was still crying. At the 2 hour mark we kissed and hugged him, said prayers and told him to try and go to bed. We checked on him after 20 min and he was asleep. I absolutely hate when this happens. It’s so difficult to figure out what is wrong and what the trigger is (sigh). This morning he seemed ok. I sent his teacher a text message to give her a “heads up”. She said he was unmotivated today. Praying and believing that tomorrow will be better.
