I want to say I handled today well and I suppose because I didn’t cry all day that kinda covers it, but it’s been hard. When you have so many things flying at you and all you want to do is sit it feels like there will never be calm. Owen doesn’t understand if I have something in my hands or if I’m in the middle of doing anything that I can’t stop to help him immediately. He gets so frustrated and starts screaming right away. I try to explain to him that he has to ask for help, that he just can’t grab my hand, but that only frustrates him more. He doesn’t understand that I might have something hot in my hand or holding something that could hurt us if it dropped. But through my emotions, lots of smiles came as the day wore on. Owen is truly becoming my little music man. I have all his instruments sitting out for him and anytime he wants to play them he can pick them up. Numerous times today he would pick up his guitar, strumming it as he sang. He played his harmonica as well. After his bath, he wanted to play his guitar again. I really should have made him come straight to bed, but having his request to play the guitar made it hard to say no. He stood there for over twenty minutes playing and singing. He was looking at himself in the turned-off television. He could see his reflection and he was watching himself move as he sang. I’m so impressed by how far he has come in such a short amount of time. I love how enthusiastic he gets when he is singing. And he sings in his voice. The more he sings, the more he plays, I see even more connections forming. There’s no stopping where my music man can go and I tell him that every day. Through emotions, I learn to let go and find the positive things in life. Today is one moment in time. Positive words and positive actions equal a positive life. Remind yourself that you can accomplish anything if you set your mind to it. Tomorrow is a new day. Smiles to all and donut daze!
I'm Lynn Browder. Owen's Mommy. The best moments in time are when I get to see the smile on his face and that giggle come from his heart.
