I have not posted anything since last Friday I believe. Tuesday I posted something on my Facebook page about some finds at Dollar Tree.
I wanted to apologize, but at the same time not. Things have been crazy around our house since Saturday morning. Our youngest got sick with strep throat and both ears slightly infected. He's been on antibiotics and he's pretty much back to normal now.
Our oldest son many know was born with hypotonia or "low muscle tone". His doctors feel like he has autism and maybe ADHD. He will be seeing a specialist soon.
There are some days he gets into his own little world. I can work with him and by the end of the day I can help him get out. Not always is it like that though. Sometimes it last a couple of days, sometimes it last a week. We are now going on 4 days. He has moments of "being there with everyone else". But they don't last very long. He isn't misbehaving because that's what he wants to do. He honestly doesn't know that he's doing something that mommy has told him not to do a million times.
We are slowly but surely making it out of the tunnel. I've been putting his essential oils on him morning and night. We have a routine in the evening with him that we've done pretty much since birth. So we have to make sure we keep it.
With his low muscle tone one of the side affects that can happen is not much sleep and he has that. He went to bed at probably 1am and was up at 7:30ish this morning. He doesn't take naps in the day. And by the late afternoon he has dark circles under his eyes. I believe he just can't calm his little mind down and can't sleep.
So my non apologies being, I wish I could post something every night, but when things are happening like this, my family comes first.
Thank you for understanding and still following my blog and what I'm doing. You're so patient with me!
I think I may take him sledding today since the snow is still powdery. I think he would enjoy it. :)
Have a wonderful day and God bless!
