I’m thankful for a lot of things but the one thing I’m thankful for today is that Owen slept all night. I’m praying that he does it again tonight. He was having a calm morning so it was no ruffling of the feathers for me. He ate a lot today it seemed. First and second breakfast, first and second lunch, dinner, and lots of snacks in between. He had said he wanted to go bowling but when it was time to get ready he wanted to stay home. He talked about school and church throughout the day. He said, “school on Monday” after I told him school starts on Friday. I know that is extremely confusing to him since he thinks it should start on Monday. This led to him making sure he was going to take the bus and that he was going to what he calls “the little school.” The little school is the school he went to last year and not the school he went to for summer school. There was no convincing him to go anywhere today even though he mentioned bowling several times. He changed his focus to church tomorrow. He took a bath and he told me he wanted a slide into the bathtub. He asked me to jump into it. The cool thing though was when I told him I was going to wear a dress to church tomorrow. He said, “no blue pants.” I said no I was wearing a dress and he could wear what he wanted. He said, “blue shorts.” I was so excited that he said blue shorts. I am trying to make sure he understands choices and that we can wear different things in different places. We’ll see what happens tomorrow but I’m just happy he acknowledged something different. And he said it without me prompting him to say something different. I had to convince him to go to bed but once he was in his bed, he was asleep quickly. His focus is on tomorrow and I love that he loves church. Find your inspiration, and share it with the world. Watch what you can change by being inspired. Smiles to all and donut daze!
