Hi Everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I have stepped down from 3 of my DT's. Things here are just getting to much to handle and with very little craft time. I spend most of my night trying to teach and help my 7 yr old with her homework and classwork as she rarely gets it all done at school. I believe she has ADHD as she can't sit still for anything and I just can't seem to keep her focused. Her brother who is in the 5th grade has ADD and once the Dr. put him on Meds. he could focus and get all his work done at school. His is a straight A student now and I am very proud of him.
Things are different now than it was 2 years ago when he started Vyvanse for his ADD as now you have to have the teacher write they think your child has ADHD or ADD just to be able to have your doctor try them on meds. I'm sorry but I don't need a teacher to tell me what is or isn't wrong with my children. I am around her all the time and have to fight every night to keep her attention and try to teach her what she is not understanding at school. And believe me there are nights I want to scream and pull my hair out as she just doesn't get it. It's just not soaking in her head and she's not retaining it. It is kind of the same thing I went through with her brother.
He had a hard time reading until he started is meds., his teacher noticed a difference in him just after 2 days on them. His little sister has the same problem with reading as her mind wonders and 100 different things are running through her mind all at the same time. My son had the exact same problem.
The only difference is my son has ADD and he is mellow and just looks as if he is always somewhere else (if he is not on his meds.) and Jazmine has more energy than I have ever seen in any child, she can't sit still for 2 minutes even if her life depended on it.
There are more reasons, this is just the one that is the hardest for me and takes away all my week nights.
Well I wanted to let you now why I haven't been around much.
Here are the 3 DT's I had to give up. I have so enjoyed working on each an every one of them, but my family has got to come first in my life and right now they need me the most.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a safe and Happy Halloween for those who celebrate it. We are going to my sisters as her small town really gets into it and make it a fun and safe place for the kids to just have fun trick or treating and playing all sorts of games. They even shut down some of the roads in the town so cars can't drive where the kids are. It's going to be fun.
