Things have clamed down here. Lil' Man has slowed down on the picking. He has been listening the first or second time, instead of the 100th time! He has been sleeping well at night, and waking up in a much better mood!
Lat night we went to my inlaws for a BBQ. He was so well behaved I almost forgot we had a special needs kid. Typically when we go over there, he plays the food game to see how much food he can steal when I am not looking. I've found it hidden in his pockets, socks, and his bag. He didnt ask once for extra food! We even stayed till 10:30pm which is 3 hours passed bed time!
Today we hung out at the house, played games, did crafts, and tidied up. Afterwards we went for a golf cart ride. We allowed him to stay up late again tonight (8:45), and he did well again.
I wish things could be like this all of the time. We're almost like a normal family.
