SJ Has Left The Building

This has been a strange week with my little one.

He was out of it Monday, I thought because he was off his diet.

I thought I had him back on Tuesday.

Then Wednesday turned out to be quite a challenge. We went to the "Pack It Your Own Damn Self" grocery store. Every time we go there, he gets a free cookie from the bakery. Only now, he can't.

He was furious. I said, "No cookie."

He shrieked with the fury of a teen girl who can't find her zit creme.

I offered him some grapes. He continued to shriek. All the way through the store, he bellowed.

We checked out while he continued to scream. He shrieked in his car seat and all the way to pick up "A" from taekwando. He shrieked all the way home.

Tantrum start time - 4:35
Tantrum end time - 5:20

He also insists on listening to the same song in the van over and over and over. No other song will do.

He was furious this morning because he wanted to watch a Cookie Monster video on Comcast and it isn't there anymore.

He has been clinging like crazy.

And the biggest thing, the thing that bugs me the most, is he is not all here. He is staring into space a lot with a glazed look in his eyes.

Earth to SJ. Come in SJ. Where are you?
Today I ordered from Amazon, for the THIRD time "Special Diets For Special Kids." I keep picking super saver (free) shipping and they keep delaying sending the order. Then I get mad and cancel it. This time I will wait.

I think they are trying to discourage people from using the super saver shipping. It used to be almost as fast as regular shipping. Now it is like waiting for your favorite porn web page to load when you only have a dial-up connection.

sometimes it takes time for their system to get back on track if they went off the diet for a for songs over and over...everytime we would get in the car..and the "hung up" madonna song came on the radio...Miss C would wail cuz she wanted to hear it again; she didnt understand that it was the radio...I ended up buying the cd...but that is the only song she will listen to...this week she has been in 'blinking' mode..all she does is blink and blink and blink...non stop...and say "girl girl girl"..cuz she wants to hear the gwen stefani song..over an over..till she literally drives u 'bananas'...

Does your son sneak food ???

I am certain that the bad behavior that I have been seeing in my youngest 2 has been from getting food they are not allowed .
They have never been allowed the grocery cookie so it isn't a big deal . We play a game called " if you could eat cake which one would you choose ???" , sounds kind of mean but they love the game .

It seems like the little guy is hard to distract. I wish I could help.

Little SJ - it's tough denying them a treat, even though you know it's the right thing to do.

Unfortunately, the porn was a joke. Sometimes I have stumbled across things and been amazed by the creativity of some people.
