I Lie to MJ way more than I’d like to admit. The primary reason for it is that I’m trying to prevent a major meltdown. It still makes me feel incredibly guilty every time I have to do it. I Lie to him when I’m taking my daughter somewhere and he cannot come. I lied to him last weekend when I wanted my daughter to celebrate her birthday with her friends. She sometimes worries about him when she’s out and about and I did not want her to have to do that on her birthday. My daughter will be going to a sleepover soon and I am already anticipating the fact that I will once again have to lie to him about where she is going. The last time she had a sleepover and he could not go, he had a major meltdown and it took about four hours for him to recover from it. It was horrible…He was yelling, “no mommy, noooooo,” over and over again and would not stop crying. It broke my heart. I know I have to stop doing this. He has to learn that he will not be able to go everywhere with his sister. He has to learn how to cope with it. Maybe I should start now. Maybe I need to prepare him now, for her upcoming sleep over…Yes I believe I will. God help me.
