Thermoregulation and a little ADPD

Mack is the funniest kid. He is serious about getting his body temperature just right.

We were playing Sorry on Sunday and he got hot, so he popped one arm out of his sweatshirt.

{Here comes the ADPD (Attention Deficit Photo Disorder) part}

Mack played really well with the rest of us for quite a bit of the game, moving his own game pieces to the appropriate spaces instead of just messing around with his guys. But then he got hungry and decided that he was done. The girls and I kept playing and it came down to this close of a game (try to ignore the fact that we've improvised for missing game pieces):

Amelia was the first to make it Home and she was pretty freakin' excited about it!

Now, back to thermoregulation.

Mack started doing the funny one-arm-out thing almost two years ago when we first moved into the big Hammond house. He wasn't hot enough to take his shirt off, he only needed a little adjustment to make things just right.

He doesn't do it a lot now, just occasionally. But what he does do a lot is this:

One sock on and one sock off. I am constantly finding single discarded socks all over the house.

P.S. Raise your hand if your kids use your smartphone more than you do.

Mack started this funny habit about a year ago (or at least that's the first time I took a picture of it).

I couldn't resist sharing these photos of Super Wedgie Man:

If you look very closely you'll notice that he has a wooden sword tucked into his pants. All superheroes need a special weapon.

"Dude, there's something stuck to my foot."

Yeah, that's what happens when you walk around without a sock on.

The one sock behavior isn't limited to the indoors.

Mack sees absolutely nothing wrong with going outside in his socks. Even if it's just one sock.

It reminds me of a certain someone who is also a little quirky about thermoregulation. She who shall not be named.

I love Mack. He keeps us laughing everyday!

And I notice it is not always the same foot he uses for thermoregulation. What a hoot!

I love how you keep track of the funny, quirky little things.
