the journey continues into the second hour

Well, we’re sneaking up on the second hour and he has refused dinner twice. I keep telling myself “you’re a pro at this now. You know what to do.” It’s not so simple as a kid that just doesn’t want to stop playing. For him…Legos are much more. We learned this year Math is a big one as well. He loves math and must finish all of his problems before moving on to something else. I assume this is because he is very much a “left brain” kid. I guess the concentration and focus it takes to build Legos would be the same as working math problems. They use a bell in school when he works on Math to help him transition to something else. Maybe I’ll try that with the Legos. hmm….I could possibly be looking at a bell smashed all up or thrown in the trash if i’m not careful. #don’t mess with the Lego’s

…and the journey for model #4440 has begun

As I sit at my computer working on getting this all set up I realize an hour has quickly gone by. I also realize I have not heard from D for that entire hour. He is painstakingly working away on his new lego set. I am reminding myself when he begins my job begins. The gentle prompts to take a break. The more eager prompts to stop and use the bathroom. Believe me, he will not stop until it is complete and this is a 633 piece set. This is his world when it comes to trains and legos. He hears nothing else until his work is “MISSION COMPLETE”. #and now for a gentle prompt 🙂

Hello world!

I’m new to this but we’ll see how it goes. I named my blog Mom Interrupted because I want to focus on the mania of being a mom and wife and trying to hold everything around you down at the same time. My three guys are awesome and I hope someone can use our experiences in whatever way they feel helpful. My littlest guy has overcome so much. #waytogo! If I started blogging from his beginning you would have a better picture of just how far he has come. He was diagnosed with PDD-NOS and is very high functioning. I will say however it has been a long journey. A long journey that I am just now feeling comfortable talking about. Anyhow, those that have been there…are there..will relate. I hope you get the same warm “at least you know what I’m talking about” feeling that I get when I follow other bloggers. 🙂 #wish me luck!
