Obsessional Overload

14 Apr

So we are around a week and a bit into the school break. Alice will be returning to school on the 19th April with little Man returning on the 21st two days later than his peers as a result of his current Exclusion. I feel as if the return to school is a million years away. Little Man has kept us busy and to say his been a little demanding would be an understatement.  His routine has gone a little of the wall these past few weeks. Since his first exclusion I’ve noticed his sleeping is once again on a downward spiral . This is with the use of Melatonin. If he over rides it than we are in trouble for the night. No sleep results in a real pain in the back side for the day that follows. Like any human being a lack of sleep will always result in a lack of happiness! Yep he transforms into this walking time bomb. You want your head to remain on your shoulders than best stay clear of Little man when his in time bomb mode.

Over the past week I have again noticed an increase in his obsessional behaviour when it comes to buses. It has gotten so bad that all he wants to do is ride on the buses up and down the road we live on. The friends he has made lately have knocked and asked him to play. When he does he just seems to drive them loopy with talk of buses. I have noticed  a decrees in visitors since Sunday. He said he would rather study the buses where Jordan just wants to go park and climb up trees. Alex just wants to play fighting games. I just don’t want him to stop mixing with the friends he has made. It wasn’t easy for him to make these friends and to see them slipping away is hard. But then if they are real friends they will understand and be there waiting to play once the obsession settles. But kids will be kids and at  least he isn’t being bullied for his obsessed ways. He really has been on a bus mission from the moment he wakes up till the moment he sleeps. I’m hoping it wont get in the way of his learning at school but then again he isn’t doing much of that lately.  lets just hope he can do a full week without exclusion. God he needs educating and I need a break. I’m not going to feel bad when admitting that. I’m not super mum and don’t we all feel this way as we near more to the point of the return of school?

Fighting yep there has been a fair bit of that happening at our house these past couple of weeks. Little man and his sister are at it consent. Well it feels consent. I’m sick of hearing my own voice telling them to give it up. Any little thing they end rowing. Little man is so controlling and becomes so angry if she don’t play by his rules then all hell breaks out. Marriage! I feel sorry for the woman who marry my Little man. Ok I wish him love and happiness in his adult life but he is gonna drive them ladies crazy. Everything has to be done his ways, His way or no way. Alice seems to give as good as she gets lately. Can’t blame her as she spends so much of her time being bullied by her big brother. She told him if he carried on she would poke him in the eye! He laughed and said go on then. Well to cut a long story short she did. He stood shocked with his month open before leaping of the sofa and chasing her up the stairs. Um yes good times.

Yes it really has gotten to that time where I’m longing for them to go back to school! Never mind little mans routine suffering mine has disappeared. I’m just hoping for a smooth reintegration back into school. Or mummy could end up becoming a little insane!
