Busy Moms Schooling Aspergers Kids

I am sorry that I have not updated much on this blog.  I can't even begin to tell you how busy it's been around here.  Well, let me try.....

First of all, I've had some major morning sickness with baby number 7 in my tummy.  I am 12 weeks along and they think it's possibly a girl but we are not sure.

Secondly, since being so sick I have greatly gotten behind on my house chores and I feel like with my house out of order, so are my thoughts.  :) You know how that is?  A cluttered house comes with a cluttered mind?  

Thirdly, we are smack dab in the middle of some serious homeschooling and that comes first above anything else.  My children's education is important and we will spend whatever time is needed to learn and stay on top of it. This is our top priority.

Chaz on Halloween 2011
Homeschooling Chaz has it's good days and it's bad days. Some days he's crying and crying and it's a miracle when we finally do finish.  Other days he is so focused we just fly right through it.  On he bad days I literally have to peel him off the floor and calm him down for up to an hour before we can even start.  His addiction to anything video (gaming or computer) takes first in his mind.  All he talks about is games and it's hard to shift his focus. This is why we allow no games until all homeschool and chores are finished.  For him, that's a great goal to have.  

I have started him back on his one cup of coffee a day to help him and it does seem to calm him down.  I need to remember to do this every day.  Does anyone else homeschool their Aspergers child?  Do you do your own or use a program?

Hi! I homeschool my son, who falls on the spectrum, and wanted to share a few of my blog posts with you on the topic....

I homeschool my Aspie too. We are pretty eclectic, and use whatever works for each kid, along with unit study.

I had major morning sickness with all my pregnancies and know how that can really mess with everything. Wow, and homeschooling on top of that.

Hang in there. Hopefully it will pass soon.
