My Little LDS Jewish Boy

Cheeks has been learning all about Hannukah in school.
I think it's great.

He can even pronounce the names on the Dreidel and knows how to play it.

He's a little sketchy on why Hannukah is celebrated.
He knows it's for 8 days and that a gift or gifts are given.

So as we were driving in the car we were discussing different things relating to Christmas and Hannukah.

He proceeded to tell me that he was Jewish.
I explained to him that no, he isn't.  He is Christian and we are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The discussion got a little heated on Cheeks side when all of a sudden he screams:

"I'm Jewish!"

I couldn't argue.  I was spent.

I thought he would figure it out when he didn't get anything for Hannukah or that we do not attend services at a Temple or Synagog but nope, he's steadfast on his Jewish faith.

So I guess I'll be planning a Bar Mitzvah!

Mazel Tov!

Some of you, who have been with me since the start of this little bloggeroo or from a ways back know that Bobster & I have had our handsfull with our little Angel, Cheeks.

He was finally diagnosed with ADHD/ADD last winter.

It was a blessing to finally have someone diagnose him with the issue we knew he had all along.

When Cheeks takes his meds...he's pretty good.
Relatively calm til it starts to where off around dinner time.

Over the past weekend he was without it.
Don't ask why.

Let me tell you...what a different child.
He was constant motion and at one point he stood outside the bathroom door and waited for me.
When I opened the door, 20 minutes later, he was jumping up & he had been for 20 minutes.

He just couldn't sit still.
His focus was horrendous.
I felt so bad for the kid and he was passing out immediately upon his head hitting his pillow (which is always a good thing, either way)

I want to Testify that I have tried everything under the sun before Bobster & I agreed to put him on medication.
The medication he is on makes such a world of difference for my little guy.
His personality hasn't changed at all..he's still a sweetie.
He is just calmer & more focused.

So, if you are debating the issue about to try the medicine or not, give it a go, it can't hurt.
