Makes a Head Spin

Posted May 12 2006 12:00am

For the first four months that John was here he refused to get up. Said he was too tired -- that his medicine made him feel way too sleepy to get up. Every morning was a battle, especially Sundays.

I already reported that on this past Sunday, when he couldn’t go to church, he was up at 7. And again on Monday and Tuesday when he had no school he was up before 7. Yesterday and today he has been up at 6:15. So, in trying to “figure out why” (which is a huge mistake for someone dealing with children like mine) my mind races. Was he faking not being able to get up before and it is all intentional? Would doubling the meds that make him too tired to wake up make him all the sudden more able to wake up? What is his current incentive? Is it the weather change?

All in all he is doing very well, but there is no rhyme or reason to it. And it’s confusing. But I’d rather be confused as to why he’s doing well than why he’s not I guess. :-)
