“Yeehaw”, Owen exclaimed. So this is going to be fun. He doesn’t quite understand how much joy that him yelling out random yeehaws delights me. We slept better than most nights but still not completely. He was ready for school though. We got dressed quickly even though his “blue pants” were too blue. He left with a spring in his step and a “yeehaw” as we walked out the door to the bus. When he got home from school he was very clingy. He wanted to go everywhere we hadn’t been in a while and he wanted to discuss people I couldn’t even imagine he remembered. It’s amazing how much he remembers. For the first hour he was home he was concerned that I was going to take him to the “baby scissors baby sister babysitter” he had to work through to the actual name. He made sure I knew he wasn’t going. After a while, it all ramped back up again. He starting listing off the names of people he hasn’t seen in six years. How he even remembers them all I don’t know. He wanted to sit with me and any time I got up he would tell me to sit. He got up a few times and then would run back to make sure I was sitting. Sometimes I think as much as he likes to go places it can also be very overwhelming for him. He didn’t want dinner at first but the longer the night wore on he ate. He sang for me tonight, even letting me sing a little with him. He asked me when he was going to see his teacher and friends again. He has to be reassured of everything. When he got ready for bed he got his second wind for a few minutes and took off running around the house after his bath. He settled down quickly but he couldn’t decide which shirt he wanted to wear to bed. He got mad because the same shirt he wore to school was not ready for him to wear tomorrow. Luckily I convinced him to wear something else. He got into bed and immediately started reciting word for word the conversation he had with Alexa earlier. He said, “Humpty Dumpty in Russian Alexa” and immediately belted out into the Russian version of Humpty Dumpty. And with that, he fell asleep. I’m thankful for his inspiration. Find your inspiration and rock 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.
