Today I woke up stressed, tired, and a little more cranky than one should be, but there I was. As the morning wore on I told myself to get over the woah is me attitude and do something about it. Owen woke at some point, got into bed with me and pretty much was ready and very happy about starting his day. Although he was pretty patient with me and actually followed instructions of staying in bed, I did not include the words “stay silently in bed” or “be still”. I must learn to give full instructions. Owen looked over at me, said, “I wuv ewe” and off he ran to get his tablet. I’ve been yawning and yawning throughout my morning, trying to let the coffee sink in. I think I need a gallon more. For as agitated as I was this morning, Owen was as cool as a cucumber. He was handling the morning really well, asking for the bus and his teacher as soon as he woke. I can’t even imagine that in a few more days summer school is over. Then it’s over a month until he goes back to school. My sweet baby O loves school, loves the routine of it, and here we are again without school. I took a deep breath in between yawns. I truly wish summer school was all summer long. I hope the rest of the summer goes fast. I see so much growth in Owen, especially over the last few weeks. He is starting to understand the art of conversation and interactions. I waited for this moment in time and here it is. Owen teaches me new things about the world and myself. I’m thankful that we are on this journey together and for the inspiration he gives me. Find what inspired 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.
