Warren was late getting home. Did I mention it is our anniversary today? It is. Married 14 years. No, did nothing, got each other nothing, etc. Let's just say being back 2 weeks, things are still a bit hectic and Christmas is around the corner. Lucky that we both even remembered. I digress. He was late. Kids were all running around screaming for whatever reason known to man. I made ham, green beans, stuffing, etc. for dinner. Why I did it, I have no idea. I should have just given them Tastycakes and they would have been just as happy. Most likely happier. Warren gets home and we shove off in the van for church clubs tonight....late. One day we will not be late for something.
Drop them off. Head out to attempt to do a little Christmas shopping for kids that, at the moment, I would have given a bag of coal to in a heartbeat. Had to be back to pick them up so very little time to shop. Did a little though and discussed our teens. Lately, we have been having issues w/ two of them. May have the one figured out. The other one is a meds issue partially. This happens w/ kids on strong drugs. They must be adjusted every so often, especially, during weight gain. It's been about 3 years since last adjustment & obviously, they've matured. That's a good thing. Yet, body chemistry changes and that does effect the dosage. So, need to call neuro for an adjustment. We are also going to try two new things that are NOT drug related but have been very, very promising in neurological research. They are two supplements and I'll give articles in another post.
Now, I never want everyone to think it is all cakes and roses here. It is NOT. Most of the time okay, but today it really was not. Logan and Max were going at each other. Only problem is when FASD is involved, there is no stopping point, poor judgement and no cause and effect thinking. See how this could easily go wrong quickly??? It is something many FASD parents struggle w/ daily...maintaining constant vigilance. Spoke w/ both our sons and tried to figure out a solution. This was one kid misinterpreting what another was saying. Getting blown out of proportion.
Gosh I get sidetracked. Got back to the church & apparently Irina had let Summer fall off the bleachers twice. Summer sometimes has a rough balance issue. Keep in mind, though 4, she's more like 2yo and we have to remember that. Treat her more like a baby than a little girl. Just the way it has to be for awhile. So, Summer came running to me. She's fine, not hurt, just feelings hurt more so than anything. Logan taught Nik to break dance. Nice. Get in the car and the teens are all arguing in the backseat. This is where one of those limosine partitions would come in handy.
Get home. Nik & Alex let Alaska and Kota escape. They come back an hour later. Kota apparently rolled in poop. Everyone feels now is the time for meal number 2. Trying to get everyone reigned in for bed time. No baths for younger kids, you can do that tomorrow. Nik decides he should "play deaf" and Alyona has become "Evilona." Summer pulled Alyona's hair & somehow someway Alyona retaliated. Alyona is 12 but mentally more around 4yo. That does not help matters any. Essentially, I have a 2yo and 4yo going at it & no one can tell me why. URGHH!!!
On top of all this garbage that is continuing to go on, Bojan informed me his pants need hemming. You all know I don't sew, right? They need hemming for his concert tomorrow night. Yeh, not happening kid. safety pins, here we come. Shortly thereafter, Summer decided she should brush her teeth....alone.
This is what happens when you let her brush her teeth alone.
