It has been the worst couple of weeks here I have ever experienced. This Summer has consisted of nothing but crying, arguing, rain, griping, cool temperatures, grounding the boys, storms, wind and defiance.
The first month was tolerable. They all sorda kept to their own spaces and didn't turn their claws on each other. But the last two weeks have been pure Hell. Simply because we have been stuck on top of each other. But mostly, they have been stuck up my rear.
I can't remember the last time I bathed alone, peed alone, ate without someone stealing my food because mine looks better even though its the exact same thing or went more then two minutes without cleaning up a disaster whether it be a mess or physical altercation.
Eli is still off all medications and I refuse to restart any. He eats. He sleeps (somewhat regularly most of the time). And he is generally more physically healthy for this. But....there's always a but. He is wound up tight all day long! He speaks so fast I usually can't understand him. And he still screams. Scream when he's mad. Screams when he's happy. Screams when he has a point to make. And screams pure nonsense.
Peyton is your typical teenager. He knows it all. Has done it all. But in on every adult conversation and is just plan "punk" 80% of the time.
Zackary is Zackary. Rarely does he every do anything that even compares to the others. His problem is he is a Momma's boy. He thinks I have to be within sight most of the time. He has no patience nor tolerance for his brothers. He should have been a only child. But it is what it is and he has three brothers that he has to put up with. Thing is.....he can't. He wants to be alone and in this house, it's just not possible. So he spends most of the day crying cause things just are not going his way...like.....ever.
Evyn is a follower. He is a mix of all three of them as well as me and Danny. He is mean, spoiled, defiant, screams, loves to be outside, loves him Momma, and is loyal.
Together, when stuck on top of each other on rainy days, it's pure chaos. They clash like family. So I guess our lives are pretty normal, huh.
On a brighter note I booked our condo on the beach for a entire week. We also decided to bring our friend along. She has helped me over the year to grow closer into the woman I want to be. She helps me with my children and all their issues tremendously. So, we decided that this year she would be coming along to help us as well as a reward for all she has done for us over the year. She truly is a gift to Danny and me and our boys. The changes she has helped me make are life changing not only for myself but the kids as well. I would suggest that anyone of my followers who have children with any type of diagnoses find a TCS (therapeutic child-support specialist) and embrace them. They are truly a blessing. She has taken our family much farther then Lifeskills or Dr.'s with advice and our support group.
So, sense this day is finally coming closer to a end and we all survived being stuck inside once again I think we are going to enjoy a greasy supper then return home for a movie and bedtime. This week, I hope each of you are having a more peaceful week then us!!
