My baby boy just had his 6th birthday party today. He'll officially turn six on Tuesday. It was a lot of fun and chaos. We decided to have it here at the house. Lots of games, and icing that turned the kids blue, and balloon animals. The kids had a great time, and even though I usually have Nick's party at some place like Slinky Action Zone or Fun Unleashed, Nick really enjoyed his birthday party. It was a transformers theme. We had over 40 people including 13 kids. A lot of people in my little house, but it all worked out.
Tomorrow Nick doesn't have school, and I have another baby appointment. We should be able to set a date for mid next month to have the ultrasound that determines the baby's gender. Mike will actually be able to make it to this appointment with me. He'll get to hear the heartbeat. I'm very excited to have him there. Now hopefully his work doesn't screw it over, as they often do. Since the appointment is at 8 a.m., Nick is staying at my sister's house visiting his cousin Leah.
Tomorrow afternoon Nick has a doctor's appointment to start the ADHD medication. This is going to be the most difficult and scary thing I have ever done.. I'm not too fond of medication, but I think we are the point to see if it's worth trying. His lack of attention and hyperactivity has gotten increasingly worse. Even worse, his behavior and defiance at school and even at home is terrible. I know that medication won't fix the latter, but hopefully it'll slow him down enough to listen to what we are saying. I just hope I'm doing the right thing.
