I heard Olaf rororororororolling down the hill again. Owen likes to start and stop videos constantly and then go back to the exact same spot to do it again. He’ll turn his head back and forth, up and down, and move his face really close to the screen. He keeps his eyes closed and then slowly opens them as he is pulling away from it seeing the dimensions and depth that I wish he could explain to me. Today was calmer than most but still filled with anxiousness for his school year to start tomorrow. He met his teacher last week but with the uncertainty of everything I didn’t want to tell him he starts tomorrow. As it is he has been asking for her every day and doing his school apps that we had from the previous years. I’m still floating from the fact that my boy can read, it’s not just memorized. I know this is going to be a great year for him. He’s excited to learn and I see his comprehension level increasing. I watched Owen drift off to sleep finally after two hours of being in bed. I prayed for calm for my baby and I prayed and prayed and prayed for numerous things I’ve been struggling with. God answers prayers. Tomorrow is a big day for my sweet baby O and I know God has a plan. I’m staring at a veggie straw across the table and for that matter several on the floor and by several I mean a lot. Maybe the veggie straws everywhere are to teach me the patience I always talk to Owen about. There’s no greater gift than my son and I’m thankful every day for the smile he gives me. He makes me smile even on the cloudy days. Never give up, follow your heart, dream big, and know that you can change the world. 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.
