The dude is becoming quite the music man. This morning when Owen woke up he immediately went to get his guitar. He brought it to me in the kitchen while I was fixing our breakfast. He wanted me to help him put the strap over his head so he could play it. He stood in front of the turned-off television watching himself move and strum the guitar. I’ve been showing him how to hold it, but it’s still hard for him to grasp all the motions and get hold it so it was basically dangling from his neck straight up and down. He was strumming away singing Old MacDonald and putting every animal and vegetable he could think of on that farm. He played it for over twenty minutes and then took it off. He asked me to help find “play guitar old MacDonald” on YouTube and then proceeded to listen to the videos I found. He played his harmonica for a few minutes, but on that, he wanted to play “I’m a little tea part”. We’ve had different types of instruments for years, but only recently has he wanted to truly play them and in the last few days, he has been soaring to new heights. I’m thankful and excited about his growth. I laugh about all the vegetables that are now finding their way to the farm. Taro, persimmon, and turnips are a few. He loved this video of flying and spinning vegetables when he was a toddler. He loved the whole series they did with fruits as well. I’m always amazed to see how much he still loves the exact same videos that he did when he was younger. And he responds similarly now even. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds for my music man. He sang himself to sleep tonight with the farm and this momma is exhausted. We had a great day, but he stayed on the go. Find your happiness and share your smile with the world. Tomorrow is a brand 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.
