Drive By (Complete with Bullets)

  • On Wednesday my little Gracie turned 7 months old. Holy heck! Time is flying
  • She is now crawling and sitting up on her own, eating solids.
  • On 10/10/10 I did my last wedding for my business.
  • Since I've had Handsome Man home full time since last March and really been hands-on with him, my gut has been telling me that something more than 'typical' 3-year-old boy behavior was at play....so I took him to a child psychologist recently to have him evaluated.
  • He was diagnosed with severe ADHD and ODD
  • Now I know I am not crazy, but still trying to figure out what to do next.
  • Our crazy do-it-urself-home renovations are still on-going. Presently: the bathroom.
  • Total Chaos.

Glad you were able to get a diagnosis--but I imagine its a bit challenging right now.
Pictures of your renos? I love seeing before and after pics :)

Oh, geez. Such a lot.

I'm sorry to hear about the diagnosis for HM. I hope you are able to find some answers. You might want to see this. My very VERY close friend Lynne has been searching for solutions, as well.

Wow...I've not heard of a 3-year-old with "severe" ADHD and ODD diagnoses. I'd say next step: 2nd opinion. If the diagnoses still stand, therapy works wonders as well as diet changes to target biological components of ADHD. (of course, there are always meds as well...not sure if you're interested in that route).

I'm sorry it's feeling like a drive-by right now. :-( I certainly hope those were rubber bullets.
