Alan's OCD has been out of control lately to the point where it takes him upwards of 5 minutes to get off the bus in the afternoon. While this might not seem like long, if every kid on the bus obsessed as much as he does, the last kid to be dropped off would be a good hour later getting home. Most of my neighbors seem fairly understanding about it and the bus driver is good about pulling in the stop sign while Alan is doing his routine, but it still drives me nuts (which is admittedly a short trip.)
In an effort to speed him up, we have been changing Alan's meds. Unfortunately that resulted in him waking up two hours earlier than normal this morning. <yawn> I shouldn't complain. I know a lot of people with kids on the spectrum have kiddos that hardly sleep and in general mine are pretty good especially Joe. But I happen to be one of those
At the moment we have more than an hour before the bus gets here and Alan has already had two full breakfasts. At this rate the kid will have consumed his entire daily caloric intake before 10 am.
