The rollercoaster world is loud and I think that is what woke Owen up or maybe it was me going to the bathroom. Either way, he was up by four wanting his tablet. I told him to go back to bed and his response was “sure go get your tablet.” No matter what I would have said he still would have been on a mission to get it. I told him again to go back to bed. He went to bed for a few minutes and then off to his tablet he went. This is where I have to decide if I want to give in, be yelled at, or have him staring at me an inch from my nose saying “tablet” with every breath he takes. I think I was cranky at that point. He turned all the lights off that I turned on even though he has a light on in his room all day long. This is his new old thing. When he was little, he would go through the house turning off the light switches even though he could barely reach them. It seems whatever was old is always new again and this feels like something he is cycling back through. He played a lot on his computer today. And when it pulled up, he saw the first screen and immediately told me it said “welcome” and then behind it the outline of a rhinoceros. When we went outside, he started talking about the neighbor's air conditioner. He then talked about when we got our new air conditioner. It is almost been three years since we had our new air conditioner installed and he is telling me about the people that came to install it, and what they wore. I have a hard time remembering what I wore yesterday, so I certainly cannot debate with him if he knows what they were wearing or not. We went to his vision therapy and he was very happy that he had gotten to go. This did not go according to plan and he was extremely hyper. The doctor was running a little bit late and he couldn’t concentrate on all the activities but in general, he did pretty well. He has a hard time waiting but thankfully he did well. He ate dinner, but not that much however, he had been snacking all day. Tomorrow, his routine at school shall return, and he also has another appointment and he is excited about going. He was extremely tired from waking up so early and he still has sinus issues. His prayer rings through my head and I’m thankful he understands why we pray. He was out almost as quickly as his head hit the pillow. The journey is worth the effort when the reward is Grace. Find your smile, share your story, and share ours. 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.
