530am is it bedtime?

Coming up on 530am here in whynotfathers.com land.  David has slept through the night for the most part.  There was a spot where he thought I was sleeping and tried to sneak out of the room, but I nipped that in the bud really quick.  Other than stretching in his sleep it has been uneventful.… Continue Reading

under observation 24/7

David is under constant supervision now.  He can’t do anything.  No less than 4 times today he has stolen someone’s cell phone.  We feel like we are going crazy because we don’t let him out of our sight, yet he is still getting the phones. He is constantly back talking and sassing mom and I. … 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

frustrations at home – we need help

We have been struggling for two weeks with behaviors at home.  David is having major issues with listening, with taking his meds as directed, with a lot of things.  To the point where we hospitalized him. At this point, David is content to force himself to vomit his meds up every morning. This throws his… 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

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

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
