Owen slept all night in his bed. He woke happy, no screams, and listened to directions - mostly. That makes for a wonderful morning. He was ready for the bus. He was ready for his teacher. And in my mind my heart is breaking because he only has a few more days of school. How can this year be over already. Where did the school year go. I hear some parents rejoicing that summer is almost here and I want to cry. My baby thrives in the routine and is learning in the structured environment. I try to do schoolwork at home with him but it’s not the same as when he is at school. He asked to paint as soon as we got home yesterday. We painted several backgrounds and he moved on to playing his keyboard. He sings all the time but he hasn’t wanted to play his keyboard for awhile. He sat down and started playing the keys. He moved on after awhile to his guitar. I was thankful he wanted to play for me. I want to get him a set of drums. I’ve read that they can help with dexterity and concentration. I think it would be something he would like to do. When we challenge ourselves to grow our world opens up to new possibilities. I’m thankful for Owen’s smile, excited about his future, and ready for his growth. Through our emotions, between the hills and the valleys we are a team. Find your inspiration and watch how you soar. The possibilities are endless. Make today matter. 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.
