I was the 27th person to pick so I was keeping my eye out for something that looked fun for Cameron and I and then I spotted the violin. It plays 8 Christmas tunes, comes with a bow and a small stand, it can play on it's own or you can play it with the bow. It reminds me of those annoying plush things that make music or talk when you push the button....Cameron loves those things!!!!
It's my turn to pick and I steal the violin....it's been sitting there since person #5 drew so I thought I was safe. As I sat there daydreaming about Cameron and I playing with it someone stole it from me. It's a white elephant party and that's suppose to happen but my reaction was priceless......................................I started to cry!!!!
I was so embarrassed, I couldn't believe I was crying over a dumb and I mean dumb white elephant crap present. I tried to cover it up with laughter but this emotion shocked not only me but the other 30 people in the room. The teacher tried to give it back but I said No and picked another gift.
I picked a 1983 Seahawks puzzle that comes in a Olympia beer tube (like the Tootsie roll tubes)....Sharon and Nick will be the lucky owners of that real soon! I was happy with my pick and sat back down. The little violin got stolen again from the thief who stole it from me and then at the end of the party it was given to me....ahhhhhh!!!!
Here is Cameron playing with it.....he played with it till he went to bed last night, then he got up this morning and played with it, we had a sing-a-long on the way to Grandma's and he was so excited to show her too!!!!

The train is much better than the house because the house you have to wait 4 hours for the frosting to dry before you can decorate....way too long for a kid to have to wait.
Now all he talks about is wanting to eat it!!!!!

- Cameron comes into my room and crawls into my bed
- I get up, get a cup of ice water (the special blue one with stripes) and a straw
- I crawl back into bed and put 2 pillows behind Cameron so he can sit up
- He drinks half of the water
- I place the pill on his tongue
- He drinks his water, swishes it around and down the pill goes
- Then he smiles real big, "I did it" and then requests a piece of chocolate :D
My friend Nancy who walks Cameron to school a couple days a week for me called me this am; she said she can tell the RX is working, "every time I walk to school I have to practically run to keep up with the boys today I was walking and Cameron asked me to slow down!"

I'm smiling from ear to ear right now and am one happy mom!!!!! Cameron got his pill down today in one try and it only took 2 minutes!!!! He felt so accomplished and I felt a great relief.
I know these pills take days sometimes a week or so to see the affect but my kid was not the same kid yesterday. He started several times to get angry and cycle out of control but he stopped himself....it was weird! I'm crossing my fingers!!!!! The doctor also said he may lose his appetite....last night for dinner he ate one chicken nugget and a hot dog bun, no dog just the bun.

Cameron had a doctor's appointment yesterday and was placed on medication. He was diagnosed with ADHD the beginning of September and I refused at the time to do medication. I Told the psych that until it impacted his schooling I didn't want to discuss it. Well......at parent teacher conference I was informed it's impacting his schooling. My son is brilliant but his ADHD is making it hard for me to sit still, learn, accomplish simple tasks, listen and I could keep going on. After talking to several people I feel a little bit better about my decision to medicate I just hope it works and helps him. He's so stinking cute and I just want him to be successful!
This morning was our first attempt at swallowing a pill. It only took 1 hour and 15 min and 7 tries to get that thing down. I was in tears by the end because I don't want this to be a bad experience. So, wish us luck tomorrow!!!!
Only a couple of catastrophes...
don't ask I did this one....I'm so sad and will be heading back to Ross to buy a new set.
Wall-la....here is our masterpiece!!!!
