We have had the most horrible week. Dakota had med changes we went from one end of the spectrum to another. It’s absolutely horrible. I really hate the way meds alter behaviors or make other behaviors worse. Now don’t go thinking I am blaming just med because he really does have behaviors he needs to change.
We went up to Gills Rock for the 4th of July. The morning started out bad. Boys fighting, Dakota hyper and bouncing off the walls and then mean, moody, grumpy and so forth. I think you get the idea. Well then finally it calmed down. It was a chore just to get his rear to move to the middle seat in the truck. Sigh… Well then finally his mood changed for a while. We stopped and Uncle Tom’s Cabin. That’s a candy place. I tried cherry brittle and well I didn’t care for it. I bought some dark chocolate with cherries in it. YUM..Then we finally headed to the park. Brittany got to play in a swing for awhile. Dakota ran for a while. We walked around for a bit and went back to the park. Then we went to dinner. Man that place was expensive. And well after what happend I don’t think I want to go back. Dakota was acting up, people were staring. My daughter figured out how to scream so she was screaming. Well the guy brought water. Do you think he could have moved it farther back. Well my daughter being the quick princess grabby that she is dumped ice cold water all over me. Duh… Then it took forever to get our order and drinks. Daughter screaming, DAktoa acting up. Finally I got dakota to sit on my lap so I could get him calm. Well that worked. But the lady at the next table kept giving me dirty looks. In fact I got a lot of looks. I was already embarassed by the behavior much less alone did I need that. I felt like standing up and screaming He has autism what is your problem. But I didn’t Once the food was served things got better. The food was so GOOD! EXPENSIVE but good. On the way out Dakota tried to take two candy bars. GASP… I ran after him and returned the candy bars and apologized. Then he was sassy. Earl took him back to the truck for a time out. Then we walked around and watched the boat rigada. That was neat. Even got splashed by the water when the boats sped past. The kids played their hearts out. The fireworks were awesome. I swear there was 3 grand finales.
Today we just stayed at home and relaxed. Brittany has been running a fever of 103. In a few minutes I am going to check her temp again wake her up and give her tylenol before I go to sleep. I am a little nervous falling asleep with her temp being high. Oh yeah I noticed she has a third tooth now. If she still has a fever it’s back to the doctors tomorrow to find out why.
I caught a very funny video on my blackberry of Dakota and Brittany and I don’t know how to get it uploaded to youtube or just on a website in general. If you know could you please tell me. I would love to share it.
Hope you all had a great weekend! Tomorrow starts a new week for us and I hope it’s better then last week.
I will share some pictures from the weekend later this week.
