So, one of the things that got me to thinking that I might have ADD is I have often wondered if DS has ADD. Well, I recently heard that kids with ADD typically have at least one parent with ADD...and so on.

Well here we are. DS sitting down to do his homework (after some "discussion") drumming away at whatever is at his desk. The excess noise is driving me batty and I can't stand it. He can't seem to help himself. Always with the fidgitting and the noise making. And excess noise drives me nutty.

We are quite a pair.

Can I throw him out the window? We're only on the first floor. It wouldn't hurt much. Of course there'd be the issue of getting his big ol' size 13 boot to go through it.
