Long WEEK...

It has been a long week for AWTM.

The good news is, part of the cyst reabsorbed, part of it ruptured. A little bit of pain, but it is our guess it is my body's own inflammmations response, or adhesions...I do feel better. I do not care to have another internal sonogram anytime soon. My Dr. is wonderful.

In other news Sir Rowland had a difficult week. I am unsure if it was as bad as mine, but I feel like I have been dragged behind a horse.

Sir Rowland has been a little agressive. He pushed a little girl at the library Tuesday, he punched a kid 2 times at choir (unprovoked) Wednesday at church, and he hit his Sister Thursday.


Why? First off, he is clueless, but he does have trouble with acting on compulsions. (I am empathetic, I am naturally impsulsive as is DH. HA....we deserve having to deal with this)

Here is the positive part, he hs not lied. When I approach him about his wrong doings, he has been honest. The punishment, has been the remvl of any privilege he enjoys. No playing the gym after church, no story time, I have made him bring me his favorite toys, I have taken away his new computer game, he had to write notes of apology for th people he hurt.

We had to have a come to Jesus talk. I explained to him that he is 5 now, he does not get warnings. If he does something bad, that is it. DONE. Also Sir Rowland likes getting the last word in. (He also gets this from his Mother, i deserve every word yapped at me, and can see my Mother in heaven laughing her ass off.) The rule is, you will say nothing, I know you are angry that I am making consequences to your actions, but nothing will be said but "Yes Ma'am". I am the only parent here for 5 months, and I refuse to struggle the entire time. I want all of us to get a long, and enjoy everyone, and one another. I refuse to let us suffer.

So far it is working, however I have no idea what I am going to do with all of these toys.
