Here's Our Tag-team Schedule Today

The king has been rough the past few days. Lots of old stims are back. Spitting, playing with saliva, throwing anything he can get his hands on, climbing on the bathroom sink…just general jerkiness…almost all with a big smile on his face. 
Plus he’s been taking afternoon naps all week.
All of this the behaviors and naps maybe partially due to allergies, partially due to a seizure med increase, and again partially due to just general jerkiness…  🙂
Anyway today we were invited to a BBQ at my inlaws house at 2pm (mostly outdoors with a lot of people).  This would be after his usual Sunday schedule of special needs baseball at 10:30am & swimming at 1pm. 
He’s usually not great at my inlaws house under normal circumstances so today we were really scared. 
So wifey and I split up the day like this. 
She took him to baseball since I kinda hate going there. They drove home. And I changed him into his bathing suit and took him to swim. 
That’s where we are now. 
After I shower him we’ll eat lunch in the cafeteria here since he always eats better here. 
In the meantime wifey will go to the BBQ on time at 2pm (on time?  yeah right! lol)  and enjoy some food in peace & quiet. 
After lunch in the cafeteria I’ll come home and give his majesty the opportunity to nap. 
When he wakes up I’ll take him to the BBQ and tag wifey in, and put her back on duty…
And then I’ll eat some cold, leftover burgers and dogs. 
Whew I’m exhausted just writing about it.  Hopefully it all goes smoothly and according to plan. (what are the odds of that?  lol)
Oops gotta go. The king’s swim lesson is over. 
Happy Sunday everyone!

  1. Yep, we're in full-on throwing season here! Always comes with the allergies. I had to remove the drawers from the desk at the top of the stairs yesterday because my son gets a kick out of throwing their contents downstairs one by one, over and over. But its like whack-a-mole, because once I remove the drawers, he moves into another room and finds other things to throw. Allegra makes him throw things more often but at least he's happy. Zertec makes him tired and sad.

  2. Could it be developmental? My son becomes very difficult the few weeks before there is some kind of developmental change.

    Whatever the cause, I hope you get respite soon!

    Sounds so familiar, actually does look more exhausting when you write it down!!

  4. Sounds a lot like some of the days we've had. People don't understand what a freakin' chess match it can be to get through the day. Here's hoping the king finds his equilibrium soon 🙂

  5. may the force be with you! 😉
