I Did it all by Myself!!!!!


Sooooo..... Donovan usually has a pretty good sleep pattern.  He didn't always.  With a little help of melatonin and a steady routine he sleeps most of the night. We don't give him melatonin daily.  We give it to him when his pattern is disrupted and we need him to get back on track. This usually happens when school is out. he .... Whew it varies.  Mostly he is up all night and crashes around 6 am.  

Recently we've  had some stuff happen that has thrown off our schedules, routines and environment.  So it doesn't surprise me that he has been an owl!  

When he is up, I'm able to take some naps throughout the night.  He usually raids the kitchen cabinets and the fridge.  He will surf YouTube, Netflix or play with other apps on his iPad. But most of all he is up drawing.  He really can draw, but he is a perfectionist and if it isn't to his standards of perfection, he will crumple it up and toss it.  

We went to bed very late, after 12 am.  I thought the kids were asleep, but I heard Donovan shortly after, turning on lights and running back and forth.  Heard the TV go on and I tried my best to rest as much as possible.  Around 5:30 am I thought I heard the bathtub faucet turn on, but I figured it was the fan, and turned over.  But, couldn't fall back to sleep.  I tossed and turned for a bit.  I finally got up and noticed the bathroom light Was on.  I ran into the bathroom and found hair all over the floor and inside the tub. The tub was full with water.  I was half asleep and I thought to myself, did my husband shave and not clean up? Then I got nervous and thought did Dustin shave the cat?! I started going through the rooms.  And there he was scissors in hand snipping away!  I asked him what he was doing?  And very proudly he answered." I gave myself a haircut.  I did it all by myself!" 

After the initial shock, I began to laugh, and then I was so proud of him.  I love how independent he wants to be.  He is constantly reminding me of how capable he is.  Ladies and gentlemen here is my Donomite's hair cut!!!!!
