Today’s light show is brought to you by our ever-changing times. Owen slept all night in his bed, got into bed with me, laid there only a few minutes, talked to me about his teacher, and after I explained today wasn’t a school day, off he ran. He grabbed his tablet, got back in bed with me, and promptly pulled the chain for the light. It amazes me how quickly he learned that he had to turn it on that way. He got out of bed, taking his tablet with him, only to run around the bed, switching the light off at the light switch, and putting his tablet right near my face. He said, “turn de light on” and off he ran again. He ran to turn the other lights on, but I could hear him turning them off and on quickly. He ran back to me, switching the bedroom light on multiple times, and I stated I was getting up. He quickly jumped on top of the bed, trying to keep me from getting out of bed. He said, “no you say yes ma’am”. As I was sitting up, he said, “good morning give me big hug”. He started taping his leg and I knew that today he was going to need a lot of input. He wants me to tap his leg also and then go through his joint compressions with him. He’s having a great morning, full of expression, and very interactive with me. Bowling and the coffee shop will be happening soon. I can’t wait to see how he wants to bowl today. He seems to be more interested in actually rolling the ball down the lane than using the ramp anymore. I should really say throwing the ball down the lane. Either way, I’m excited about our adventure. To see his smile and knowing that we have found something he loves brings me pure joy. Find your happiness, do something for yourself, and make today a great day. Smiles to all and donut daze!
