anyone elses difficult child spend all day yesterday being overstimulated from christmas? difficult child smashed up a lot of his gifts yesterday because he was too excited and meltdowny. i spent 2 1/2 hours building his new train set and it took him about 35 seconds to anihilate it. he also smashed his lamp and tore apart anything he could, tried to smash his brothers race car set because his does't have remote control (his is wood and sturdy so even though he smashed it i can fix it someday) he wrecked his new markers and 3 of the 4 flashlights i got him. he calmed down after i left with the other kids to get away from him but really, it's too bad he destroyed half his christmas stuff the first day. he did this last year too. i think this might be our new tradition. we all give each other gifts and then difficult child sees how many he can wreck in one day. ugh. next year i am only getting him clothes. i wish that we could do christmas without him so maybe he wouldn't get so wound up. he seems to be okay today. he picked up all the peices of the broken train set this morning and said it was okay, he didn't need any more toys anyways. he is upset a bit about the lamp but i told him too bad, i'm not buying another one. that is the third lamp he broke, he asks for one every birthday/christmas because he has no lightfixture in his room and it never lasts more than a day or two. maybe next year i will try again on the lamp. i wish he would just leave them alone. now he is back to his little lcd night light.
