You know, when everything is harder than it should be? On the bright side, DD got through the first half of the review of short a letters without much trouble. Then she balked at practicing writing. Now she's outside scootering around. DS kept bugging me about why I gave DD a day off on Saturday. Yay. He's working on his math now, though, and he'll get to go outside after he finishes, too.

On the bright side, I tried giving DD some coffee, after reading that it can help calm down kids. It seems to be working. She's not as flighty as usual and seems to be concentrating better than usual. I'll give it a week and reevaluate.

We could give that a shot. Thanks for the suggestion!

Quoting kirbymom: We did the coffee thing for one of my boys and it settled him down. The difference was huge. Night to day huge. That was when he was 11. Now he is 15 and does not want to drink coffee. :) Jilectan.... You might try doing 2 or 3 vitamin waters a day. They seem to help with my family, maybe it help yours(?).
Quoting Jilectan:

lol, I tried that, once, and she gagged and spit it out.

DH thinks we should give her sobe energy drinks with taurine and such. I'm not so sure about those.

Quoting paganbaby:

Oh yeah! I just gave him the coffe I normally drink.

Quoting Jilectan:

You know that flavored stuff? Maxwell House, french vanilla, although I'm considering getting her some chocolate covered espresso beans, since she likes those and there probably isn't as much sugar in it. Or maybe green coffee pills.

Quoting paganbaby:

How did you get her to drink coffee? I've tried with my son and he just gagged :-(
