I’m thankful, very thankful Owen has been sleeping better the last few nights. He’s on the mend. Sickness is hard on him. He’s starting to understand about medicine and other things like wiping his nose but it is still somewhat of a mystery to him as well. He was in a happy mood this morning with a side of cranky. I think I was cranky with a side of happy. We did the whole coffee-light switch thing and then he got into bed with me to laugh our morning away. I love our mornings. “Jungle junction horn version,” he asked his tablet to find on YouTube and then he slow it down and sped up the audio while he watched it. It’s amazing what he figures out. He listened well though and he did almost as good today as yesterday for getting his clothes on quickly. We got outside and he said, “Owen eat a bug.” I asked him if he really eats bugs and he said, “no Owen no eats bugs yes.” That covered all the bases. He is listening to more languages again and wants Siri to translate for him more. He was laughing at the different words this morning. He heard the bus and the jumping began. He gets so happy when he sees the bus. I have to remind him not to run out to the bus. He was in a great mood when he came home except for the people that were walking by our house. He has a hard time when they don’t stop to wave to him or don’t walk in the order he needs them to. We had lots of conversations when he got home and he wanted a calendar except when I showed him his calendar then he didn’t want to see it. He brought me his tablet and wanted me to move the notepad to another section but then he didn’t want me to open it. He wanted to open a whole bunch of apps, closing them as quickly as he was opening them. He started talking in Portuguese I think and then told me spinach is a food and opened a Spanish kid’s app and said, “Spanish is a language.” “Spanish isn’t spinach,” he said. I started talking to him about turning eleven next month and he said, “no that’s winter” followed by a language I didn’t understand. I told him when he woke he was amazing, I told him as he went off to school he was amazing, and I told him when he got home he was amazing. And he truly is. Even in darkness there will be light. Follow your dreams and let them shine light into your world. 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.
