You know when you think everything is going along swimmingly and then all of a sudden you are doing those tiny little strokes to stay afloat, well today’s that day. I’m looking at microwaves that I hope aren’t going to cause Owen to go into complete meltdown when he hears it. He loves watching microwave videos, he likes counting down with the numbers, he even is fine with some of the beeping noises it makes, but generally, that’s the first go around and if I try to start it again that will upset him. The part that really gets him though is the actual noise it makes. And this can go even further down the slippery slope because some microwaves don’t bother him as much as other ones do. And tonight of course my microwave broke so now the question is will the new one be the perfect sound pitch that doesn’t bother him or will we have to go through several before we find the right one. I ordered one that the buttons can be silent and I hope that will help but I’m concerned about the actual noise it makes. It will be a waiting game to see how it goes. I never imagined the stress of buying a microwave would cause me. But I also never thought I would have paper covering the window on a door so Owen can’t see the outside storm door to know if it is not shut properly. I can’t let the tears overflow my eyelids. I have to breathe and think of the positive side of life. Owen is doing fantastic. This is what I have to focus on, this is what I must focus on. I feel like his connections to words are increasing and he is truly trying to communicate with me using more sentences that we are working on. I’m feeling very blessed to see his growth and to know that the sky is only the stepping stone for my boy. I know he can do anything he wants if he sets his mind on it. Never give up. Believe in yourself and the rest will follow. Today is your day to shine. 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.
