Today was a most excellent day. We had a brief tantrum right before bed, but he had a busy day. We got up. Had breakfast. Then. We started in the garage. Dug out the mower. So that he could get started mowing. While he was mowing where I was planning to work on windows today, I loaded the truck with the tools I needed for the day. Lunch was an easy snack. Although he did disappear on occasion to get some light snack. All the while that mower was running. He did a really good job, and only missed a couple of spots. Because he did so well, I moved some things around so that he could use his basketball hoop. Only to have him remember that his basketball was deflated, and he had thrown the needle in his fit of rage nearly two weeks ago. So he had some
It’s in the past. That is how David responds when we try to talk to him about the threats that he made toward that individual on facebook. “I don’t want to talk about it, because it’s in the past.” It was last Wednesday February 29. Just because it is in the past doesn’t mean we shouldn’t talk about it. He is not allowed to use computers. So he argued with his mom about using the iPad. So now he isn’t allowed to be in his room alone. Why? he steals and it is easier to keep an eye on him in the common areas rather than in his room. Why? He shares a room with his older brother and his older brother has a computer. So very frustrated. David managed to convince the hospital staff that he was an angel and didn’t get his medicine because mom and dad didn’t
Sweet, my bride and I get to have a couple of hours to ourselves tomorrow. 🙂 Thanks so much Auntie! We are going into the city, doing a little shopping, lunch buy some car parts for my truck, and then come home. Kind of a late valentines treeat for ourselves. Having three boys on the spectrum with the youngest being the way he is, it is difficult to find a sitter who can keep up with them. We don’t like to leave David home with the girls, as they don’t deserve that. So since Auntie came to visit for the weekend, we have a perfectly capable sitter. She doesn’t brook any trouble from any of the boys, and knows how to deal with their quirks and many blessings. So tomorrow, I will get to tell everyone how my date went with my bride. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
