They are 3 years 10 days apart!
In our house for the past 5 (almost 6) years, Andrew has had the cake, party (joint mind you) and present.
This year, Andrew got his OWN party and now Declans birthday has snuck up on me once again.
I have realised that next Monday is in 3 sleeps and I have NOTHING planned for Declan again.
I have a family dinner for 1 June where my brother and his family will be here to do the present thing for the boys and that is it.
On top of all that, we have just gotten a diagnosis for Mr Dec of ADHD and we are day 3 into medication for him and he is not taking that very well.
The first day he took his top up pill, he thunder chucked outside his classroom.
The second day, he was too scared to take his morning pill in the fear that he would be sick again.
This is the third day and so far, he seems ok.
I hate that I have to medicate him and hate how he is feeling in that little body of his.
Not only does he feel sick and is scared of taking his pill in the fear of hurling it back up, his brain is still going 100km and his body wont let him do what his brain says to.
So on top of the birthday guilts, I feel awful for doing this to him.
I know that with his diagnosis he NEEDS the medication, but as a parent I don't want to do it.
I better go before I start babbling and then I will probably cry all over the lap top.
I hope you all had a fab week and have a great weekend.
