Have you ever seen Bill Cosby Himself? The best bit about parenting I think I have ever seen. And it is true to this day. But there is more to it than the brain damage he talks about. I think that some of them are brain damaged, some act brain damaged and some are conspirators. They scheme instead of dream. Each night as they recharge their little batteries, they are plotting. Plotting their way to drive you to breaking point.
My son, is their leader. He jumps from one topic to the next and from one question to the next that it makes your head hurt. I realized this weekend as I battled another migraine, he just may be the very cause of all of them.
Ryan: Are we going to lunch tomorrow?
Me: Because tomorrow is church.
Ryan: Will we go to lunch on Monday?
Ryan: Can I have some blue juice?
Me: You just had some
Ryan: I still want to make videos with your iPhone.
This conversation was in no way taken out of context. I couldn't possibly. Conversations with Ryan go in circles. Go in all directions. Are questions upon questions. Leaving you tearing your hair out. He will also argue to argue. This is not a brain damaged child. Selective hearing yes. But brain damaged...not necessarily. Although, he did shove a bead up his nose a couple of weeks ago.
What's my point? What's my question? I want to know...is your child, niece, nephew, grand, whatever that child is to you in your life...are they brain damaged or are they the direct cause of YOUR brain damage!?
