The ball and chain had to go shape a night construction job on the belt parkway,which left me with minding my little cherubs all by my lonesome after working all day. So, we had our soup, sandwich and cookie dinner and watched some Curious George. The ladybug is usually very agreeable about bed time, so that left me and the boys.
In between episodes of C.G., beating the shit out of each other and me asking them to stop a hundred times before I crack their coolies with the wooden spoon, Quinnie must’ve worn himself out. Out of the blue he whirls around and says “hey, Mom, I’m tired! I gotta get to bed. Jeez”
So I tell him to get to steppin, nobody is making you stay up anyway. Crazy kid. Then I asked the boys if they want to have a sleepover because Daddy won’t be home until morning. Quinn rejects me, unless he can get back into my uterus, he isn’t settling for anything less. Liam was all over that invitation, though.
So the biggun picks a movie, snuggles up and complains that my feet are ice cubes and I better keep them on my side of the bed. We talked about his day and how he feels things are going. I explain to him that I do feel he needs some kind of help managing his attention and impulsivity, but we are going to try something homeopathic and see if it helps. I let him know that he has to be an active participant in his treatment and he has to give me feedback, whether it is good, bad or indifferent. He yeses me to death cause he just wants to watch the movie and shoves his cold ass feet under my warm caboose ( the nerve ) and he is snoring his face off, just like his father.
Liam wouldn’t be who he is without his ADHD. Sure he is anxious, nervous, over sensitive, impulsive and relentless but be is also smart, compassionate, funny and corny. And in as many ways as he is super mature for his almost ten years, he is still young and innocent enough to jump at a chance to sleep with Mommy. I am not ready to give those days up. Yay for me.
