He will also consistently ask the same question over and over and over....ugh! Like today - he wants to check the mail. Starting around 10:30 in the morning, he begins asking if he can go check it. I tell him that it's too early, that the mail lady doesn't ever show up before noon, 12:00. No lie, every 5mins or so, he will ask if he can go check the mail, and when I begin to explain it all over again, he gets furious. Now, it's after noon, so when he asked I let him go (he was watching the clock, and at 12:03, he asked again). He came back in at 12:06, said it wasn't there - no big surprise - and said "I'll check again at 12:10." In FOUR MINUTES?!?!!! I told him that he needed to wait a little longer, so he asked if he could go at quarter after. **pulling my hair out!!**
Does anyone else go thru this?? At first, I was thinking that maybe it's an obsessive/compulsive thing, but after further thought I was wondering if it's maybe linked to his impulsivity? I mean, I have found myself at times watching the clock and wanting to check things quickly when I am excited about something, but I have the ability to not act on those impulses. Whatever it is, I am about to go I-N-S-A-N-E!!! lol
