Give Me A Break

Our son–Mr. Energy!
Our son David's one-on-one specialist was out for the last two weeks due to her husband's back surgery. David's substitute was a man with much experience with children—being a principal, very physically, and he practices karate. But at the end of the first week he told us his wife was amazed since she had never seen him come home so tired. He would be ready for bed by 9:00 pm. At the end of the second week he stated he really enjoys being with David, but is still amazed by his energy.

This week David came home following the return of his one-on-one and informed us they had decided that they would be alternating days. Ms. Robin would be with him on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and Mr Meredith would be with him on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We asked if this was due to Ms. Robin's husband needing her, but we had to laugh when he stated that no her husband was doing well but that they both needed to have a break from him since he has too much energy.

No truer words were ever spoken. David was not offended and took this in good humor.

Rita- I'm glad your enjoying the "Death Do Us Part". My husbandthought maybe I should stop since they weren't getting as many comments as my "life with David", but I want to continue til Valentine's day.
Kelly- I love reading about Grace and seeing as her personality continues to emerge.

David use to run around the house when he was three yelling "I got energies, I got energies!" Everywhere we went people use top say, I wish I could bottle his energy.
