dyk Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
DYK Jennie we started a December thread at the same time !
DYK Is there a way to delete my post?
dyk when I try and changed my settings
dyk it tells me that my email address is already taken
dyk say what? I know, it's taken BY ME and I'm logged in UNDER IT lol
dyk and no it didn't change my signature and it won't save to delete it either
dyk I get this look alot from abigail
dyk when she doesn't want to do what I've asked or is trying ot be defiant
dyk I bought $25 in fudge
dyk regular fuged, fudged covered pecans (locally grown) and christmas spice fudge and OMG I'm drunk off it.
dyk I'm not sure if we'll have time, but we may try and get some christmas lights up today when Sean gets off work
dyk we can probably get the candy canes out and I'll get Sean up on the roof tomorrow after church
dyk my kids nasty tones are getting on my nerves and I'm about to dish out some punishments
dyk but earlier today, they were fine -- for the 3 hours we were at the park with bounce houses, dance performances, fudge and face painting
dyk here's Ellie hanging "backstage" before the performances
dyk and here is Dek and his buddy Jack
dyk Jack is hanging with us this weekend, he got here after school yesterday and will be with us thru end of daylight tomorrow
dyk his parents are taking a weekend away together and they have a hard time finding care for Jack (their others are older and can stay alone but can't care for Jack) even her parents won't take Jack b/c Jack has some special needs
dyk he's prone to erratic violent meltdowns
dyk well, you know us -- violent meltdown.. come on over!! LOL
dyk of course, we don't deal with that with him here b/c we're set up for kids and I didn't force him to eat when he wasn't hungry, or wear socks with his shoes, or change clothes to sleep...
dyk he ate at 7:15 when he was hungry, all the kids ended up barefoot anyway and who CARES what you sleep in?
(dyk Jack hasn't been formally diagnosed yet but they do suspect Asperger's (his 16yo brother has aspergers, too))
dyk Dek and Jack were in class together last year and I am in small group with his mom so we see them often
dyk but Dek is having a little trouble with playing b/c Jack won't play like he wants him to.
dyk but it's a good lesson for Dek to guage the situation and adjust accordingly -- most kids his age cannot keep up with his scenarios, even when they are interested and Jack is really quick and very smart, but doesn't "play" the same WAYS that Dek does lol
dyk some of the conversations drifting in are really funny
