So I told you all about Monkey being diagnosed with ADD. Well, its actually called ADHD, primarily inattentive. Blah, blah. I think you all know what I mean when I say ADD. Anyway, we decided to medicate him. He is taking Vyvanse. Today is only his 4th day but I just have to let you know what happened yesterday...
Everyday after school, for almost 4 years, I've asked him the same 2 questions. How was your day? What did you do today? And everyday He gives me the same answers, good and I don't know. But not yesterday. Yesterday's conversation went like this:
Me: Hey Bub, how was your day?
Me: Oh yea. What did you do today?
Monkey: I don't kn... No wait. We went to recess. And had lunch. And I had P.E. today.
It may not seem like much to most people but those few extra sentences meant the world to me. He even started to say I don't know (probably out of habit). But then he corrected himself because he did know. HE KNEW! He knew exactly what specials he had and how his day went. And it did not go by in a blur of activities that his short term memory couldn't process. Thank you GOD, for all the small things!
Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
