It's been a quick minute since I last posted, but it's just been super busy around here. Not much exciting stuff has happened either. No news is good news, right? Well, almost right.
CDC has been having trouble in school. She is a handful at home and we sometimes have difficulties making her behave. I know this could go into a whole debate, so i'm not going to get into all the little details.
She has always been very high strung, hyper, and hard to settle down. I've thought at times, that she could possibly have ADD, but her doctor won't hear of it. I know that CDC is not the same as other kids her age. She cannot sit still, rarely makes eye contact if she is in trouble, can't focus on one single task for more than a few seconds, and cries about every little thing! She cries more in a day than an infant. I'm mentally exhausted at this point. I don't know what else to do. I feel defeated.. I can't blame her, of course, so I blame us as parents. We must have done something wrong somewhere down the line. It just feels like, now, it's too late to change things, but we're trying!
Every day, almost, she comes home with bad notes from her teacher. She is always "Playing and talking a lot" and "Not listening" and "Not standing quietly in line," etc.. I have talked to CDC about it and she just doesn't get it. It's like she doesn't even comprehend. I've tried to tell her, if she has a week of "Smiley faces" on her weekly report, she could start dance classes. She was extremely excited about that, but still had bad notes. :( I'm just at a loss.. Her doctor is no help at all. We've been talking about this for a year or more.. She suggested counselling, which I may decide to do. Seems like she's too young for counselling, but perhaps she isn't.
I just had to get all of this out and blogged because i'm sure i'll want to look back on it someday, plus it just helps to say/write it.
