I have some difficulties. I am so used to being up all night with him that even when he isn’t home, I can’t sleep. Odd, it even happens if I am staying in hotels. There, though, I invariably end up stripping the bed and sleeping on the couch in the room if there is one. When David was in placement for two years, I still had difficulties with sleeping at night.

Hopefully the prednisone I am taking will bolster my bodies ability to fight what ever bug I am developing. Now, back to the title. Our youngest, feels it necessary to lie about everything. And it is frustrating. He doesn’t get to even play toys without supervision because he can’t control his impulses. He gets into more trouble for telling lies than he does for stealing food, keys, toys, books, pens, pencils, toys for the pets, calculators, cell phones, mp3 players and all of the other many things that he has stolen.
