Sleep is working for one of us, mostly. Owen has been falling asleep after generally getting up several times first to talk to me about all the noise I am making by sitting on the couch, with all the lights off, and not moving. This takes about an hour sometimes and I think it all depends on what is on his mind. He woke with another happy day smile and was ready for us to do what we do. I’ve been trying to divide up our time better and that seems to be helping more. I also think he was ready for the break to be over. He played his drum for me and laughed about not singing with it. He was playing on his tablet and he was talking about the different objects on the screen for the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He was being very descriptive and this makes me happy. There were several shapes and he went through each one explaining why they were different sizes and shapes. He told me the paint was in a rectangle shape. His words are really flowing now. We got ready for school and he was doing everything I asked him to do. He told me that when he got home he wanted to go to the overpass. I told him we could or maybe go for a bike ride. He started insisting that it was winter as soon as he got off the bus and went on to talk about the cold. He kept going with everything you could think of to do. Then he wanted to go to all the places and he even told me he could go see a babysitter that he hasn’t seen in over five years to watch Mickey Mouse with the kids. I didn’t rush him to decide. I offered walks and bike rides and overpass looking but he decided to stay home because he wanted to take a bath and get ready for school tomorrow. He didn’t eat much for dinner tonight but had a lot for his snack. The world was making a lot of noise as he tried to drift off to sleep and bedtime was not quick tonight but at least he was happy about tomorrow. Never give up on the hope for tomorrow. Life is what you make it so let’s make it grand. 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.
