Sleep is a beautiful thing. Thankfully Owen slept through the night once again. He wakes happier and seems like he is in a better mood. He didn’t want the lights on this morning but that truly is the standard now. He was watching his tablet and going back and forth from my room to the living room and then he came back to talk to me. I like when he spends time with me in the mornings talking about the things that are exciting to him. He has been talking about music. He is getting really good at his harmonica. When we saw his music teacher yesterday he was once again thrilled to see him. When we got home that evening he talked about his harmonica. I told him he could take it to show his teacher. I didn’t know if he would play it but I put it in his backpack for school. When we got outside to wait for the bus we walked towards the street. I always go out early in case the bus is ahead of schedule. Plus, it gives us time to work on our exercises and for us to talk about his day ahead. We stood there for a minute but the wind was really strong so I told him that we were going to stand on the porch out of the wind. I knew this would not go over well but I need him to understand sometimes we have to do something different and the more times I can introduce this to him in controlled circumstances it will help him realize he can do anything if he sets his mind to it. Once we got on the porch he wanted to go back to the sidewalk. I told him that we could go back in three minutes which would still give us a couple of minutes to wait if the bus was on time. I had him watch the clock with me. I am trying to get him to understand the concept of time. I already think he understands better than I can imagine but he can’t tell time on a clock. When he came home from school he was planning his days ahead. He didn’t want to go anywhere tonight but he sure has the rest of the weekend planned. His teacher told me he had a great day and she was very impressed with his language skills. I asked him if he played the harmonica for his music teacher. He laughed and he said he sang. He then said something else and said harmonica but I couldn’t understand what else he said. He was mostly happy throughout the evening with only a few minutes when his apps weren’t working correctly but otherwise had a great evening. I’m thankful for his words and his growth. Find your inspiration and know that you can accomplish anything if you set your mind to it. 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.
