Only because we had a family vacation planned, and I had to spend so much time with-him when he was sick, grumpy, and undermedicated, I thought we would kill one another yesterday. So I am enjoying a kid- and husband-free evening at home! Woo hoo! Thiis is what the dr ordered. Except I caught difficult child's cold. I hope I don't get a sinus infection like he has, too. This is the third yr he's been sick at the beginning of the school yr. Seems he's got allergies that kick into a cold and/or migraine or sinus infection. I pushed and pushed to get him to go to school. He snuck onto the computer, he was restless, clearly ready to go back. Then he woke up and it was back to square one. Just because mornings are awful when you're sick. I picked up his homework at school so he can do it Sunday. So, how do I motivate this kid? Even when he's not sick he's so lackadaisical it drives me nuts. I'm wondering if we should up his Imiprimene. Granted, he only got half yesterday, because he and husband lost the last one when it fell from his hand (I picked up a new scrip), but I still think he's unmotivated. I'm thinking just 10 more mg. I will talk to the psychiatrist on Tues. After difficult child was a JERK yesterday, he was better today, and expressed surprise and dismay when he found out I wasn't going along overnight to the beach. When they left, he gave me a hug and told me he loved me. Go figure. I have a really hard time bouncing back that fast. But we've all typed so many notes on this topic, I won't repeat mysef. I'm having wine and cheese and taking Vit C and reading poetry and sleeping a lot and not setting my alarm clock.
