I know Easter Monday is a holiday for Christian types in this region of the country but all these vacation days are making me a zombie. I tried to nap after a three-hour park visit. The nap consisted of me telling Aaron please stop kicking me and sitting on my head. When I woke up I asked him to put on his shirt and shoes and it was a nightmare. I guess I am writing this for my girl Cecily. On most mornings Ryan the ADHD wonder is up, fed, and dressed at least 30 minutes before we have to leave for school. Aaron won’t eat, dwadles with the dressing, and freaks out from the time he gets up till he gets to school. I pick him up from school at noon he is angry, the day I get him at three he is worse. He never wants to eat and he is food allergic. He is so thin at almost five he wears a size two-t underwear. He wants candy almost 24-7 and when I say no it is usually followed by a trip to his room and tons of tears. I am firm and consistent and usually that helps with the ADHD boy, with the neurotypical kid consistency means nothing most days. My dream is that he will grow up a little and these intense dramas will end. If not I will be on the funny farm in about six months from now.
You are not alone my friend.
