Day 5 ~ Not feeling well, it was a good day

Well, here we are at the end of day 5, a Saturday.  I have been ill all day, yech! Our youngest has been just bouncing off the walls for most of the day, even though he has a hacking cough.  I wish that I could do the same.  Over all, It has been a good… Continue Reading

Day 4 ~ a recap

So, it seems that our youngest son has issues with needing attention when any of his other siblings are home.  It doesn’t matter to him if he is negative or positive in how he gets the attention.  He will push any button he can to get attention. So we spent quite a bit of time… Continue Reading

Evening Day 3

Well it appears that we have two levels of behaviour.  That which he exhibits during the day when it is one on one, and that which is displayed in the evenings when everyone is home.  Tonight he was all about the word no.

Day 2 ~ Much better ~ or Butterflies and more.

Day two started out very well. No eruptions or complaints. Got a call from the psych nurse regarding missing the blood draw yesterday. She was very grumpy. I understand that there is a protocol to follow with the blood work for his meds, but what can I do if the people who draw blood are… Continue Reading

Day 1 – a recap

Today started out rough.  Bad mood on his behalf.  Once we got the siblings off to school, he was fine.  Spent the morning playing and looking for the homework pile that mom put together for us. Never did find it. In the afternoon we went into the city for an appointment for me.  Grandpa was… Continue Reading
