Not a great day
Deklan didn't have a great day today (I'm still on Sunday - even though it's early Monday morning). He didn't have any meltdowns, he just was a little off kilter. Yesterday he was in and out, playing with the neighbor kid - well his type of playing where they're in the same area and think they're playing the same game but actually are playing two very different games at the same time. Anyway, he was loving and just there. Does that make sense? It does to me. Today he was just not there. He played in his room nearly all day. Which is fine - it just keeps him really isolated and it bothers me some that he doesn't want to come out. The neighbor boy - who loves Deklan and is almost the same age - kept coming over and Deklan just didn't want to go out. He wouldn't even go out for a popsicle. He finally came out of his room on his own around 6 p.m. He wanted to play the computer but older sis was on it and he had to wait an hour. Not patiently but he waited. Then he got an hour on the computer and went back to the other room until bedtime. Every time he hears a website announced on TV he runs to the computer and tells me to look up the website. Usually it's from the cartoon network or a commercial that says you can play games online. So not a great day, but not really a bad day either. Guess I shouldn't complain - it's been worse.
