A turning point?

Today is amazing! In fact, it's been an amazing time since the kids came home from France. The Concerta seem to be REALLY helping Kyle, in all aspects, but today has just got to be the most amazing day we've had so far!

Kyle is running around the house with a tape measure, a notepad and A PEN!!

He's measuring EVERYTHING and actually WRITING his finds and measurements into the notepad!

What can I say? Kyle NEVER writes. Hell, he never even holds a pen! Yet he's doing this totally of his own accord. I tell ya, either the Concerta is working miracles or the aliens have taken away 'my' Kyle and replaced him with some strange kid LOL

Anyway, that's all I wanted to say for now. And to everybody out there: Don't EVER give up on your kids, no matter how difficult it may seem there IS always hope :)

yay!
its so exciting to see our kidlets actually take a step forward!
 
Absolutely, it just makes me smile to see even the tiniest steps forward with Kyle. The fun bit is when he actually sees it himself too ;)
 
I really appreciate the blog since the first time do I saw it. Now they have reached another milestone which lead us to report about it, and I think it's a great new... as the content of the text.
 
This can't work as a matter of fact, that is exactly what I believe.

Who IS this kid??

Wow, what can I say? They came back on Tuesday and there STILL hasn't been any major tantrums! Kyle only missed his Concerta tablets twice throughout the whole 3 weeks he was gone, and believe me, that's an achievement in itself for my mother LOL.

But seriously, I've been waiting for the bomb to go off and for the screams and fights and all the throwing things around but.... It hasn't happened yet!

Is it the Concerta? Is it just the calm before the storm? I have no idea, but in all Kyle's 9 and a half years we've NEVER gone 2 consecutive days without at least 1 major blow-up.

Heck, the kid is even wearing clothes without a great big fight about it. He wears pyjamas for bed (which he never usually does), then when he gets up in the morning he puts his trousers on. Ok, so it's only trousers and nothing else, but man, that is SO different to having him running around 'au naturell' LOL.

IF this is all down to the Concerta then OMG I wish we'd known about it sooner.

oh wow- i do hope your peace lasts! i know damien reacted quite well to the concerta... but he did well on ritalin too, once we found a doctor who knew what he was doing!
 
Right now I'm thinking Concerta was the best decision we ever made :)

Counting the days...

Time has gone so slowly for me without the kids here. It's been good though, I've had time to spend on myself and Hugh, and also time to write another ebook. I haven't been feeling too good lately, so the break is really what I needed. but Oh My God! It's SO quiet and boring without them! Thank god 3 of them come home on Tuesday. LOL, I can picture it now, they'll all be SO happy to be home, they'll give me hugs and kisses, they'll chatter non-stop about the holiday, they'll have food, they'll settle down to watch tv and then BAM! They'll start to quibble and wind each other up. Hahahaha, kids are just great, eh?

Actually, I was sitting re-reading the article about Schools and Education that I posted here previously. The author is right. School IS too old fashioned and stuck in it's ways. At least it is here in the UK, I think possibly even more so than over in the USA. School here still goes by a lot of the old Victorian rules and principles (apart from now they're not allowed to hit the kids).

Although it's hard work for me to home educate Kyle, and it means putting my own things on the shelf (as discussed in comments with 'angel'), it's what I CHOOSE to do. Heck, these kids are going to be looking after us in our old age, don't they deserve the best we can do for them now?

Oh, by the way, I've also started a new blog. One where I'll be writing more about parenting rather than about living with ADHD. Nothing much there yet, just one or 2 posts, but feel free to check it out: http://real-life-parenting.blogspot.com/ and if YOU have a blog related to parenting, drop me a line and I'll add your link to mine ;)
