My Head Is Swimming

** I’ve been negligent.  The following few entries will bring you up-to-date on our summer….

Father’s Day weekend

I need to ramble.

Rewind to Saturday. The Walk was wonderful. Everything was great. The boys both did fantastic. It was a GREAT day!

Sunday -> Good grief! Matthew was seriously like he was possessed. Absolutely insane. We couldn’t look at him or talk to him without Third World War erupting. Father’s Day was ruined. It was awful.

Now this has happened before. After a highly stimulating day we have experienced sudden huge lows afterwards but for whatever reason we just weren’t prepared for it. It actually didn’t even enter our minds. So yeah, Sunday sucked – big time.

Monday -> was the graduation. He was nervous and outta gear and didn’t know if he wanted to stay for the dance and really had a topsy-turvey day but it wasn’t “bad” if you kwim. He went to the dance and had a good time. Came home last evening and played outside and was our typical happy-go-lucky Matt.

This morning ->He was a different kid. When we got up he was awake, dressed, room cleaned, bed made and “in a GREAT mood”! He ate, got washed, brushed his teeth and was out riding his bike by 7:15!! He said he had been awake for 2 hours (he has no concept of time, but I would say it was close to 2 hours with “how” awake he was). Mike and I were like W-T-F?????????? He has N—E—V—E—R done that! He said he felt like he had “flowers growing in his stomach instead of storm clouds”. Who describes their moods like that????? I dunno. I can’t figure him out. It’s a little hard on the head sometimes let me tell ya. You just don’t know where he’s going to be mentally, kwim?? You get up and prepare yourself mentally to walk around on eggshells because mornings normally aren’t good and he pulls this one. It sounds awful but the first thing you think is “uh-oh”. Seriously. Not all it’s cracked up to be.

My head is just spinning……
