Sweet Colton, in Two Minutes Flat
Last week some time, close to bed time, Colton came into the kitchen. Mind you, the meds he is on are completely worn off no later than 3:30 p.m. He had on his shin guards from last year's soccer season. "I'm off to play soccer Mama." Not 30 seconds later, "Mama, can you make cookies with me?" I began getting the ingredients out. He still has his soccer shin guards on. No 30 seconds later, I am making the cookies alone and he is playing on my phone with his shin guards on. After the mixing had been done and the oven preheat timer dinged loudly and the first two batches of cookies that I made alone were out of the oven, he looked at me and said, "Mama, can we still make cookies?" And, that my friends is ADHD. That is the sometimes very confusing world that my son lives in. That is a tired brain ready for bed so that it can rest for the next day's craziness. My sweet Colton.
