Yeah... as if! LOL
All kids were asleep by 1 pm ish. I go to sleep. Then, Fuzzy decides to get up at 2am and basically tortures me every 15 minutes until 3:30pm, until Hubby gets up and lets him get in bed with me.
Hubby went to the couch. Yeah, neither of us were particularly happy. <sigh>
I got up at 11am, and made all the kids breakfast stuff. Nothing fancy, just toaster oven or microwaveable things. The kids woke up at various intervals between 9 and 10am.
They let my sleep the extra hour, which was nice.
I think everyone will be going to bed early tonight!
My dad is making his homemade sauce with ground sausage and ground beef, fresh garlic, tomatoes, and seasoning, over orrichetta (little ears or hats). Yummy! The house smells so good.
Hammer is working hard on his Nuclear Science badge for Scouts today. I am very proud of him. I just got a new program for him to use over the next 2 years of high school. 10 discs, all the subjects, with 100's of lessons and exercises for him to do, and a tracking system for me! Yay!
We don't 'officially' start homeschooling until Fuzzy and Pumpkin head back to school. Hammer really needs the quiet, so it works best.
That reminds me... Heather left this comment yesterday:

"Dressing an aspie boy is a trial that only mothers of aspie boys can truly understand. We had a kohl's meltdown a few weeks ago because Austin was SURE he still wears a size 8. He refused to try the size 14 or 16 that he actually needed... until I got him into them and he found out they felt so much better and had MORE POCKETS. At least we're past the "no sock" stage. That went on until he was 11. He could not STAND socks on his feet EVER. Just wanted to let you know... I know what you're dealing with my Kcup drinking, aspie raising friend!
Oh yes, we totally have that in common! As I mentioned, Hammer is very relieved about not having to deal with dressy clothes for the wedding.
Hammer had about 3 years where socks were just an awful experience. Unfortunately, it was prior to us knowing, but he did learn to cope with them. However, each summer, he gets used to not wearing socks. Then, in the fall, it does take him about 2 weeks to get used to it all over again. Such are the trials of Asperger's.
The same thing with his Boy Scout uniform. At first, he complained and hated it. He suffered through it, but it was very obvious that Hammer was uncomfortable. Now, it doesn't seem to bother him at all.
In the beginning, when he was so resistant at first to trying Scouts, and would only agree to a 'trial' go of it, I think that it was the uniform issue that actually was the thing he was avoiding!
Hammer NEVER complains about having Asperger's Syndrome. He will always tell me and anyone he can, that it is a gift. He just accepts the bad with the good. A lesson that I am trying to embrace, as well.
