When YouTube’s suggestion is for you to listen to a new version of The Wheels on the Bus you might need to set up a separate account for your child. I can’t even imagine how many times I’ve sung the song over the years and what went on that famous bus ride; rocket ships, animals and friends alike have been on that bus. I tried to always entertain Owen with that song and made up different versions to keep his attention. I would always ask him to sing loud and proud with me, over-exaggerating the words at the end “all through the town”. I can remember the day so clearly that I heard Owen sing “town” from the song. We were driving to his preschool and there it was, my baby singing with me. I started crying instantly. I couldn’t wait until I finished another verse, hoping he would sing it again. He ran to me last night, holding his tablet, asking for me to pull it up with the voice-activated option. He still doesn’t understand that his words can get it to respond as well. He doesn’t always pronounce his words so it understands him, but many will automatically pull up for him now, however, he still comes to me to search for him. He fell asleep a little earlier last night, but it was a struggle. We are going to try a new supplement with him to see how he reacts. The never-ending decisions of how to help my baby don’t end when we go to sleep either. He laid there sleeping, but I could tell it was fitful sleep, moving around constantly, and making random noises. I know there are rules for this sleeping thing, but he seems to throw all the rules out the window. And with any noise being a noise, Owen seems to hear every car that is miles away. He pops up from his almost asleep state to see who is out there, running to the window, and then checking to make sure the front door lock is still in its upright position, luckily it’s still locked. My baby is growing and together we will walk through life’s moments and memories. Make your memories today. Find what motivates you and go after your dreams. 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.
