Does my child have ADHD?

Does my child have ADHD?

I have thought for months now, if not longer, that Moo exhibits signs of ADHD due to some emotional irregularity.  She goes from 0 to 100 in a heartbeat.  Her temper flares incredibly quickly at the slightest provocation.  And if I don’t catch that special […]

Mini Post: Drink More Water

Hi all!  Thanks for stopping by.  I have to tell you about my new toy cause it’s seriously saving my life right now. I hate drinking water.  Like really hate it.  When I was pregnant I must have gone to the hospital at least 4 […]

ADHD Brain – How did we get here?

ADHD Brain – How did we get here?

You know that moment in a conversation when you think “how did we get here?” I love that moment.  I love to backtrack, retrace my steps and figure out the conversational lane changes my brain took me on.  I think it’s really funny.  In fact,  […]

Learning to adjust and be flexible with ADHD

Learning to adjust and be flexible with ADHD

A good positive attitude is so important and I don’t always have one.  I am not very good at adjusting to change or being flexible.  I very often spiral into darkness when one small thing doesn’t happen the way it’s supposed to.  If Boo decides […]

My ADHD Got the Better of Me

My ADHD Got the Better of Me

Dear Diary – Yesterday was one of those days where the need to be “normal” was incredibly overwhelming.  I wanted my ADHD to go away.  Just doing the simplest task felt impossible.  I was Wesley pulling Buttercup out of Lighting Sand in the Fire Swamp. […]

Why am I so mean? To Myself?

Why am I so mean? To Myself?

I’m so Mean! I was in the car on the way home from the grocery store when I suddenly have an epiphany.   I am really mean.  Not to my family or friends or coworkers.  I’m really mean to myself. I had been getting progressively more […]

ADHD: I can’t…. or can I? I have a choice.

ADHD: I can’t…. or can I? I have a choice.

I have been having discussions with a friend about choices.  She knows I have ADHD and she knows I can’t get rid of it.  However, she doesn’t let me off the hook when I use my ADHD as a reason why I can’t do something. […]


My Diary

Allow myself to introduce….. myself

Allow myself to introduce….. myself

I’m in the middle of writing up my next post about working from home and how I need structure and have a hard time focusing at work and decided to take one of 20 breaks to make crock pot steel cut oatmeal. I started to mention my hubby and my kids and thought “How will my new friends know who I am talking about?”

I started giving everyone pseudonyms but was having trouble explaining who they were. The post was getting all crazy trying to insert the fun names and then explain the people and it was totally boring and distracting from the original point of the post. I figured a post that explains who everyone is was probably a good idea. So without further ado…..

Blue Eyes: This is my darling husband. Blonde/Brown curly hair with stunning blue eye. Both my girls have been blessed with those baby blues and not my boring green. (I mean, my green isn’t boring but they aren’t Kristen Stewart green if you know what I mean.) Blue Eyes is larger than life. He’s a big dude with a lot of personality and love in his heart. He is one of the smartest people I know which is so cool as well as incredibly annoying.

The names for the girls is a tough call cause these are real nicknames and it’s still unclear to me how much I should be protecting the girls’ identities. I guess I’ll figure it in the next few weeks so don’t be surprised if you see a change.

Moo: Moo is my oldest, currently at 9 yrs old. She is stubborn, strong willed and a perfectionist. And she’s freaking gorgeous and doesn’t have a clue which is awesome. At 9 yrs old the drama is already off the charts but Moo is a really good friend and cares deeply.

Boo: Boo is 4 and such a ham. She wears whatever she wants which usually includes a skirt of some sort (during the day and at bedtime). She loves her sister and hates it when anyone is angry at her. She loves to laugh and play pretend. Pretending she’s 9 like her sister does not make for easy bedtimes however.

So those are the main characters in my daily life. There are more of course and I suppose we shall meet them along the way. Thanks for stopping by again.

Happy

What’s distracting me today:

Again…. this blog! I haven’t gotten one ounce of work done but I did start crock pot oatmeal and a load of laundry that has been done and sitting in the wash for an hour.

What’s distracting you?
