We celebrated Christmas with Keith’s side of the family on the 20th. Alexis was a very difficult one, we ended up having to leave with her instead of staying overnight. She likes to be certain before she arrives somewhere how many people will be there. We try our best to prepare her but sometimes plans change, as they did. My niece and aunt stayed home because my niece was sick with the flu, that set Alexis off and she had a hard time calming down and progressively got more agitated. Cadence still stayed and spent the night, we are glad she was able to do that. It was nice seeing everyone and the food was amazing.
My mother-in-law has been unwell so I am extra sad that this Christmas was so high-stress because of Alexis. I am trying not to dwell too much and remember the good.
