Thanks for the encouragement

Thanks for the words of encouragement on dealing with the thorn that is my daughter. She just turned 6 but you'd think she was 16 with the attitude she's been giving lately.
No improvements at school for her and we took her to a therapist who said that she didn't think she had ADD, she thinks my sweet daughter is just really smart and one step ahead, so she tries to push her boundaries. We're so lucky!

At the same time, I'm impressed with her abilities and how well she's doing when she writes and reads. And there are times she's just so lovely with her little brother. But man, there are other times, like right now... :-)

The sad thing is anytime I'm having a problem she freaks out. The other night I couldn't sleep because I had really sharp pains going up and down my right arm and my thumb, index and middle fingers were numb, but my ring finger just hurt, like it was on fire. So I was really sore and in pain the next day, like I'm having today. Well, my daughter just really worries. I hate this. It's hard to say, "I'm okay" but then wince in pain at the same time.

My son is hitting and whining a lot. My goodness - what did I do having kids so late in life? I'm 39 years old and I feel like I'm 60! No wonder all the sharp pains are back! LOL!

My son is talking so much, but the funniest thing is when he says firetruck - his "tr" sounds like "f!" LOL!! I laugh every time but I try to correct him. Of course there was the day he came into my room and said the f word plain as day. When I asked him what he said he looked at me and said, "Um, I love you?" LOL!!
See - you take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and then you have the facts of life... I heard that somewhere before. Tee-Hee! Of course I've heard that, I can't tell you how often my husband walks around the house singing old TV show themes! LOL! What is up with that?

I hope you're all doing well. Please take care and thanks for reading!

Not to be one that offers unsolicited advice, but my son is a friggen nightmare sometimes. We have found that diet modification helped oh so much. Sugar: No WAY! Carbs, protien and veggies piled high.

Oh, yeah. I'm only 38 with two 4yr old fusion reactors.

Oh, and boys have such a long ways to go with eloquation ... th, l and r take a bit longer than girls. My daughter showed us that one.

Your kind sound like very intelligent little persons.

The biggest problem is that they are bored, but don't know it.

As long as they are careful, they'll have full and fulfilling lives.

If they aren't careful... Hey grandma...

Buy 'em a chemistry set full of smelly chemicals (that takes care of their social lives :-) and make sex ed. a priority.
