How Does She Do It?

My precious girl marches to the beat of her own drum. Some days she shocks me with her clarity and understanding.  The next she is in her own world scripting and singing. Today she talked from the moment she woke up until she fell asleep at 7:45 pm.

She mostly scripted all day, except when we went to Walmart to order her birthday cake and do some shopping. She was very quiet, but excited.  By the time we got home her legs were worn out from toe walking. I thought she might sit and rest, but she paced the house and talked continuously the rest of the day. I even had to take her to her room so Brett could work.

I wish I knew how she goes on and on like that. Her brain must fly a million miles an hour. She started stuttering a few days ago. I’m praying this is temporary.  It broke my heart listening to her trying to sing Happy Birthday with so much trouble. I give her  medicine to sleep and her pediatrician said she could take 1/2 a dose during the day to calm down. It puts her to sleep too. We have tried other meds for ADHD, but they make her agitated. I just am not sure what to try next. We see her pediatrician for her 9 year checkup in a few weeks. I am hoping she and I can come up with a plan. Chloe can’t keep going full speed much longer.

She is doing way better with unschooling than with a more structured schooling schedule. I see way less anxiety. So will we be trying a new medication? Maybe a stricter diet?? She is quite the sugar addict. We try to keep it under control, but we are human and she does get treats every now and then. It is easier if she doesn’t go to the store with me. Lol

Then I saw where Chloe had wrote her own schedule last night.


How cute is that😍 She even followed it. We will figure everything out. I just want her to feel secure and relaxed. It’s tough as a parent when you cant just fix all of your child’s problems. I just pray and know God will show us what to do.

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a wonderful and blessed day😊

  1. I really enjoy reading your posts and just wanted you to know that.

    My son (autism and anxiety) sometimes seems to go nonstop, talking at supersonic speed from sunup to sundown. And other days he is incredibly quiet. As he gets older (14 now) I notice he has a lot of mood swings. Navigating that along with his emotional stage being quite younger than he is, well, it’s difficult.

    My daughter has speech disfluency (stuttering, false starts ) and even though speech therapy worked wonders, we still see it pop up at age 12 when she gets overly excited. She has ADHD as well and is on the spectrum but not actually autistic (delayed).

    Reading your posts I find such a caring mom who reminds me of, well, me!

    I wish unschooling works for us. Our homeschool day is very routine and structured. My son totally falls apart if it isn’t.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes we seem a lot alike. Chloe likes structure to a point, but she doesnt like to sit to learn very often. I have to get creative. I really enjoy your blog as well. Minimalism is one of my major goals.
