No one is more steadfastly oppositional than JoJo, nor more hilarious. His psychologist was doing her best to muffle her own mirth, as JoJo was on super power yesterday during our appointment, we're taking him totally off one of his medications, and proceeding forward with cautious optimism.
He'd thrown himself down prone on the waiting room floor, proving to other clientele why we needed to be there, hollering, "I need meds!" as he fell, then telling a black guy sitting there that he wish'd he didn't have a white mama, pointing dramatically towards me, telling everyone within earshot that I was such a dweeb.
"Just kidding! I love her!" while the guy looked askance at him. An oppositional, zero impulse control clown full-on being super silly, generally drawing amused stares and guffaws from bystanders.
Oh Brother, I've long learned to ignore him out in public. However he then will amp it up, grabbing my hand, slobbering and turning somersaults, acting like an ape on meth.
Finally done with that long drawn out episode, dumping 'em all back at school, playing a country gospel CD loudly in my truck to recover, I had three hours left to get everything done.
Today an 8:30 at DJJ, hopefully Jonathan can maintain and not nut up as he did just three weeks ago, irking Miss Kim, his tough, but very patient probation officer.
"You RUINED us!" JoJo hollered at Allen, who has to return to the dentists office today to get a cavity filled, "Our sib group had a stellar reputation."
I'm hung up then on him knowing the word 'stellar.'
"My mom's a nerd," he told me, as if I were obviously so stupid. "Duh!" he copied me impishly and ran off laughing, challenged everyday on volume control, swinging his arms like an orangutan.
Lord Have Mercy, I'm so glad every night when he finally falls asleep.
