The coffee shop was Owen’s first major request this morning. Well, second to him wanting me out of bed before five in the morning. I put getting up off as long as I could and now I’m waiting anxiously to get our day started. I love our Saturdays together. We headed to the coffee shop and I got a glorious latte. It’s my one sugar a week treat, but I’m afraid that I’m going to have to find another favorite drink without the sugar. It’s playing havoc on my arthritis. Within a few hours of drinking it, I can feel the difference in my mobility. So, as much as I hate to give up sugary treats, my health is more important and close your eyes when I still eat that occasional cookie. We headed to bowling next and long gone are the days of the ramp. He wants nothing to do with it. We are still waiting for his ball to come in, so, for now, we are bowling together. I have him walk to the lane with me and we swing the ball together. He is loving this as much as he was enjoying using the ramp before. I can’t wait until his ball comes in and he can throw it down the lane on his own. And I think I do mean throw. We shall see how that goes. We roll with the punches and throw with the balls. He’s had a good day. I heard words of great expression and songs that showed off his voice. There’s a new sense of exploration happening and the world is becoming bigger to him. I’m excited to see what tomorrow brings. Let yesterday go and grow for tomorrow. 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.
