Zach is still a spaz and we had to tweak his seizure meds, so we can't tweak the ADHD until we know the seizures are under control. That just makes for long, interesting, and sometimes funny nights. He becomes hard to control and defiant when the ADHD meds aren't working. It's not horrible, but I have to be on my "parental" game all the time.
Here are some random tidbits of our lives - most of these are Tweets or Facebook statuses.
Tonight I made chocolate chip cookies and Zach thinks they are spooky. He would rather eat Chips Ahoy with all the transfat possible. I told him, "You can have an apple after you eat my cookie." Seriously. How many of you have had to say that?
I got this note from his teachers, "Zach might need a bath tonight. He and a classmate were barking like dogs during recess. I told them they should pretend to be earthworms so they would be quiet. Zach went over to the grass and played worm." I love it!!
I lost my keys for 3 days. I searched high and low at work. I found them during Sunday School. In my purse. I forgot about the secret pocket... I wish I could say this was my first time doing something stupid like that. It's not the first and won't be the last.
We got 10 yards of dirt and I shoveled most of it one Friday afternoon. It took 2 hours the next day to be finished. I felt great. I get a text from Mark on Monday asking if I ordered more dirt. Apparently, we only got half of the load on Friday... We didn't have anywhere to put the new dirt!
Ryan has this really cute, "Stop" and "Go" thing he does with his hands. It's so cute!!! You need to come see!!
The other day Ryan was being stubborn and I said, "Ryan! You are forgetting who the boss is." Ryan replies, "Meeeeee..."
Basketball is over and soccer and baseball are starting. I can't wait to see how soccer goes. We have a baseball game this Saturday - Brandon and Kane are joining us! I am excited to see how all the boys play together. If it's like last time, it will be great - the boys play together and don't need me. Every once in awhile, they will say my name just to make sure I haven't left. It's so cute!! I just hope Kane doesn't mind that Zach will follow him EVERYWHERE he goes!
Maybe next time I blog I will actually have something to write about!
