a new alarm clock — the sound of a chair

that is being dragged across the floor. 🙂  such a lovely noise to wake up to. Greetings from this father at Why Not Fathers.  My night ended at 4am when I finally couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer.  Now, it is 6am and I am awake.  Thank you David. The beginning of another day.… Continue Reading

a day of frustrations. started at 4am

we have been really struggling  today.  David stole two cell phones, two keys and a DSI from his family last night.  Between the hours of 3 am and 4am.  How do I know?  Because that is when I was asleep.  the keys are for locks in the house that we use to keep him out… Continue Reading

life or something like it.

Things have been kind of crazy here at the Casa de Why Not Fathers. As soon as I can process everything that has been going on, I will post about everything. I had a fabulous vacation with my eldest daughter.  Sadly, another three weeks and she  will be off to college and the next adventure… Continue Reading

vacation and missing my kids

So here I am.  500 miles from home. Have a hotel room all to myself.  and I can’t sleep. I miss David.  I am usually awake until around 4am because of him.  According to my body it is only 2:30 am.  Another hour a half to go before my body gives in and shuts down… Continue Reading

Lies and other fun stuff – life with a klepto part 2

We were up late due to the excitement of fireworks, a fire pit and s’mores. To bed at 3am and up at 6am.  what a joy. David had my cell phone this morning, so friends, if you received either a text message or an email from my phone this morning, it wasn’t me. So I… Continue Reading

rough morning so far

Mr David woke up in a good mood.  And has been going non-stop.  I wish I had 10% of his energy.  Heck even 1%.  He is so bouncy this morning that he has the whole house on edge. He wears a patch that delivers his methlyphenidate (rittalin)  and he takes them off when ever he… Continue Reading

a midsummer nights update

Things are kind of rocking along here in whynotfathers land. Our youngest son is still being home schooled.  We still don’t know what is supposed to be in the Service Plan that we are supposed to file with the school district.  Our state Department of Public Instruction gave me our state century code as guidelines,… Continue Reading

Mediation Request redux submitted

Well, I broke down and submitted the mediation request.  The school as you may remember requested mediation in our quest for an IEP for David that would allow him to return to public school in his home district.  I had written a rebuttal to their request. Today I listed the 20 or so people on… Continue Reading

frustration and other things that are important

the psychiatrist says that David’s behavior is because he is bored. I wonder home much of his current behavior might have been prevented if he had been allowed to attend public school. Our school district would indicate that the school they wanted to enroll him in was a public school.  And it is.  I can’t… Continue Reading

frustrations and a welfare check – followed by explanation

Well, we survived our welfare check.  Now to wait for the report and determination. I am satisfied with what I think of the visit with social services. I am frustrated with what I see as someone trying to discredit myself, my wife and our family through lies and innuendo.  By filing a neglect and abuse… Continue Reading
