I actually get more exhausted dealing with my YDD (Youngest DD) than the grandson.

Hi Dawn I can so relate to one DD not understanding why the other one is treated differently. I too have one that is Bipolar(ODD) and one that isn't(YDD). I have custody of DGS (4) and will be getting it for the one that is going to be born in

He likes school and playing with the kids. The teachers cameto the house for the conf and he's doing great at school they always put him in the groups of the kids going to K next yr. They do this as he can do everything theyshould be doing and some of them aren't able to do the things yet and DGS helps the kids that can't do something.

Tell me why I'm still up at 10pm after only having 2 hours of sleep. I know why, I have to wait until 11:30 to take my meds.....We had the 3 kids from next door again, their mom is doing on the job training this week and next so I'm baby sitting both weeks.
