Guy Fawkes Night

Today started off well and we had a nice easy morning before school.

After school we had to take Munch for his Hep B vaccination, he was full of bravado until he saw the needle, then he screamed and I had to hold him still, anyway it’s all done now. Afterwards I don’t know what happened but Munch was in that mood were nothing is right, his whole attitude is stroppy, he did not have a nice word to say, he called us names and was generally very unpleasant.

When we got home he went and got changed, he came down and we practiced ready for his Connect 4 competition with Beaver’s tomorrow, at first he played nicely, then he got whiney and it was wrong if he won and wrong if he lost and was just nothing pleased. In the end I made him come upstairs and sit on his bed just so that I could try to talk to him, I told him to loss the attitude or else he could stay upstairs so that we did not have to put up with it, all the time I was talking to him he kept trying to be clever making funny faces and saluting saying yes boss and laughing. I asked him to stop and told him he could go down stairs, on the way down he kept laughing and acting clever, so I sent him upstairs and said he could stay there for a while.

When he was allowed down again he was told that if his attitude did not change the fireworks we had brought for tonight would be put away. He played quietly on the computer after that until it was time for the fireworks. We had a great hour and a half watching the fireworks and eating hotdogs in the garden. Munch had his job choosing which firework we were having each time, he ate 4 hotdogs!!! He earnt a star for behaving a listening well whilst we had the fireworks, so in the end we had a lovely night.

And half term hols start

Good morning, I was feeling much better, although still have a raging sore throat. Just one knock this morning and sent back to room.

Hubby and I had been talking about things we wanted to do with Munch leading up to Christmas, and one of them was to take him to Harrods Santa’s Grotto, there was me thinking how good and early I was looking to book this, there was not one weekend booking left!!!! I then looked at Selfridges and have now booked for here 10 days before Christmas on a day we can go after school. I have also booked for one of the local shopping centres for the 23d December. I am very excited now.

Picked up from school and told that he would need to entertain himself for a while as I needed to get on as needed to catch up with things. Munch played on his DS and Wii for a while, I then let him on the computer just before dinner. He asked for help a few times but on the whole got on with it, we had a few cheeky moments and him trying to control, we had 1 time-out, I have said from now on he is o do it on the stairs rather than the chair as he is constantly opening and closing cupboards and doing things he should not, he moved without any opposition, surprise surprise.

After dinner Munch asked if we could experiment, so out came the red food colouring, ‘red’ orange squash made, ‘red’ banana milkshake, ‘red’ chips, ‘red’ pasta, very ‘red’ hands, oh and my nice pine table is now ‘red’!!!!!!! He really enjoyed this though and did very well so star awarded.

After that he showered himself and watched tv for an hour before his later bedtime as no school tomorrow. We let him have an extra hour on none school nights in the hope that he will sleep in a little later, never works though, so have once again pointed to the 9am on his clock and said that he can knock then, we will see!!!

Good day but!!!!

This morning Munch knocked a couple of times on the bedroom door and had to be sent back to bed. Once we got up we had a good morning routine, right up till getting dressed then right out of the blue he kicked me, as per norm it was straight to a 3 and time out. He protested that it had been an accident, I just said that it had not been and kicking was unacceptable, so go and do your 7 minutes, which he did.

After school we went to his club, he was well-behaved today so earned a star. At home he was good, apart from when I was helping him on the computer, he was leaning on me and a kisses him on his head, so he spat in my face, again straight to 3 and time out, and told tha spitting again was unacceptable behaviour and he could have just told me not to kiss him. After this the rest of the evening went without incident and was very pleasant!

2 stars earnt today, bringing total to 39. 1 for good behaviour at club – 1 for no calling out once in bed.
