Rough day all around....

I thought today was going to be a nice, relaxing day... Sophie & Peyton would be coming home from my husband's around 12, Matt would be coming home from church around 2, and Chris would be coming home from his dad's around 4. Christopher's belated birthday party (as he turned 13 on New Years Eve) was going to be today at 4. Easy enough day, right?

As soon as Peyton came home, I knew it wasn't going to be as relaxing as I thought. Most of you probably know that Peyton has Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), and has a hard time with his senses, tactile feelings, emotions, etc. When he gets really tired, or really overwhelmed with his surroundings, he starts having issues. NOW, the thing that really irritates me is that when the O.T. is here, Peyton is SO well behaved. He sits and plays nicely, he follows directions, and is a real pleasure. I wish I could get her to see him when he gets overwhelmed, when he's throwing tantrums and smacking his head on the floor, or when he flops down when he's upset and refuses to move, and you kind of have to drag him to get him moving.

But anyway, Peyton was over tired today, and as the day got worse, his behavior got worse. He kept hitting me and shouting "NO" at me. He was throwing his famous tantrums and just giving me a really hard time.

Sophie was over tired as well, and SHE was acting up, which she never ever does. She was whiny and cranky and kept crying over the stupidest things... She refused to leave my parent's house and started crying because she wanted to go camping -- keep in mind it's like 25 degrees out.

So it's now 7:15 and I'm just counting down the time until they're both in bed. I know it's bad to wish your kids in bed, but I just SO need the quiet time tonight.

On a good note, my mother let me borrow her Wii fit today so I can get started exercising. I can't wait to start using it! I was going to start tonight, but after the day I've had, I just want to get in my Jammie's, crawl in bed, and watch Desperate Housewives!

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day:)

I want a Wii fit. Let me know how it goes!

Enjoy the Wii fit!!!! Make a schedule for yourself, yoga one day, strength training the next, or if you want to do both the same day, keep track of the exercises and vary them up, otherwise you'll need a good two hours if you want to do everything every day.

Sorry the kids weren't behaving. Why not video tape Peyton when he gets that way and then show the OT the way he acts.

I'd also get on Mil, he obviously kept the kids up too late, or something, they shouldn't be THAT tired coming back from his place.
