|My Precious Little Angel|
Today she was a bit tired. That's what happens when I let them stay up late to watch a movie. But I had no choice - it was Spiderman 3 and Dad really worked hard to convince me. Generally, I have learned that you cannot cut her any slack. She has a tendency to turn good things into bad things.
But today the after-effects were limited only to some auditory integration issues and laziness. She did fall asleep during the movie, but she was still tired at school. When they watch a movie late (a rare treat) we let them lie in the next morning - one of the best reasons why homeschooling is perfect for ADHD children.
Today was the best that she'd handled a late night yet. She listened during lessons (in between a bit of fiddling, yawning and stretching - nothing too disruptive) , followed instructions and did her work well.
There was a small incident when the noise in the home got to her, but at least she didn't slam doors.
