THE SHADDOX BOYS
Jacob and Elijah Shaddox are brothers. They live with their mom, Mary, who is the writer of this blog. Jacob is 19 and is now four inches taller than his mom! He also has ADHD and gorgeous red hair. He is a freshman at a technical college studying computer maintenance. Elijah is 15! He is in 9th grade and he is not in ROTC at his high school. He also had red hair, but it is lighter and not as thick as his brother's hair. He is hearing impaired(auditory neuropathy) and wears two cochlear implants. He also has tourette syndrome, ADHD, OCD and anxiety! Mary just started her 25th year as a teacher of the deaf. She is also in her last semester of graduate school to be a diagnostician! She will graduate in December of 2015!

Elijah really loves to wrestle. It isn't that easy with him anymore though. He weighs about 80 lbs now and can really wrestle. His newest thing to say is "I'm going to take you down girl!" He says it in this funny way and it just makes me laugh. I am trying to set aside time each day to just do what he wants to do and if that means wrestling than that is fine with me. Although I have to be careful, because he can really squash me if he wants to! I don't think he realizes how big he has gotten. We still have a long ways to go with behavior but for now we are in a good place and I have to be careful because HE may just take me down!
