Well, we haven’t started Ritalin yet because we’re waiting on insurance approval.
But overall…Trevy’s mood is MUCH better.
And that makes life MUCH easier!
There are still little things that upset him. For instance, at Special Olympics he hates the soccer station. I wish I knew why. He used to love soccer.
The above was rudely interrupted by Hurricane Sandy. Which, by the way, I totally thought the weather people were exaggerating. So much so that my “hurricane survival food” included three tubs of ice cream. Over 24 hours without electricity and a freezer filled with melted ice cream goo proved me wrong. While RI didn’t get the brunt of it…we certainly weren’t excluded from damage. Our community was 100% without electricity, actually! We were all hating on our neighbors with generators. Except the kiddos who were thrilled with two days of unexpected school holiday.
So I’d like to amend my previous statement that Trevor’s behavior is much improved.
His behavior has been wonderfully manageable…until there’s no power. And he can’t watch tv…take a bath…eat yogurt…play his iPad…
Then it’s the wrath of the Trevinator!
Thankfully, my parents (who live just a few miles away) had both power and a generator. Grams let Trevy and Bristel hang out at her house for awhile yesterday…and then they loaned us their generator for last night. It made things a little easier. Although Trevy still asked me a bajillion times if he could take a bath. Even after I lost my cool and yelled “NOOOOOO!” at him. Mommy fail, I know. But seriously, people, how many times could you handle the same question being asked before losing it?!
Thank God, power was restored late last night. Because he’s in school. And life can get back to normal.
Also, all the kids are thrilled that they are actually going to be able to Trick or Treat.
Oh…and how I adore all of you who worried about us! Seriously. Nothing makes my heart as sappy as knowing people are thinking about us. As cheesy as that may be…
