Maia lost another tooth last night. now she is missing her two bottom front teeth. there is a new one coming in already. she isnt even 5 yet! and then we have Ethan who is nearly 7 and has all his teeth and this drives him absolutely bonkers that she lost hers and he didnt. although in his mind I am not sure he understands that he is older. I think he thinks of them as the same. but he has a sweet and generous nature. even if he can be a little monster sometimes. whenever he hears about someone who has less than he has he wants to give and share what he has. He understands givng from the heart in a way his sister doesnt. so she lost her teeth but he has gained a giving spirit. I guess it comes out even.
I have the boy off his meds today. An experiment. he is still Ethan but MUCH LESS SO. so do I try to find a different drug that wont make him so aggressive? or try to live without? I medicated him wiht the hopes of making him better, not worse! life with him is unbearable on his meds. he is angry, he lashes out, he snarls at us all day long. it is hard to be a loving and sweet mom when the entire day you are told everything you do is wrong. not to mention he is eating everything in sight today while off his meds.

he was here the other night. I knew he was because my big boy kept barking. he is a lot like a kid. kids cry in certain ways letting you know hungry hurt needs a cuddle. Well big boy has a bark that says tattle tale! someone is getting away with something! I swear he does. Others have seen it. He also has a "someone is here who shouldnt be" bark. and of course the someone is here! who is it! go away cus I am the big mean dog! bark.
so the other night he was letting us know that someone is here who shouldnt be. its always the same. about 10-11pm. so I thought he left after my dog stopped barking. It turns out he didnt leave, he just left the porch. he is now harrassing the kids via the windows to let him in. HE DOES NOT LIVE HERE! so anyways he is jumping up on the low windows(most of our windows are low enough that he could jump up on two paws and look in. and with snowbanks even the ones he couldnt reach he can. so he has been pawing at the windows WRECKING THE SCREENS! I rue the day that dog came into my life. If it were MY dog doing the damage, then I would be disappointed but its my dog so I would just feel like ok thats life. but it isnt my dog. and I am a little pissed. I dont think there is a lot I can do about it either since the cops tell me there is no dog ordinance. of course the city told me there IS a dog ordinance they just cant enforce it due to space issues. so now I have screens with holes in them. not a big deal in the winter but each time he does that the holes get bigger and then when its summer you open the windows to a screen full of holes and have a house full of skeeters! obviously after I took him to a nice hotel his family bailed him out. if he would just come during the day time so I could take him in again. but no he always comes at night.

wish I had something profound to write about but I am left with nothing. My brain is barely functioning. I am about to fall asleep. and I have scouts tonight too.
