All day long I kept saying to myself how thankful I was that Owen got into the doctor when he did and we got his antibiotics started right away. He woke up still a little sluggish but he slept until after seven and I wanted to rejoice some more. He sure needed the sleep. He woke in a great mood though. Yesterday we discussed that we would not be going to church. And then we discussed it again and again and again. He asked a couple of times this morning but moved on from it pretty quickly and I was also thankful for that. I hate when his routine gets disrupted but we are working with him to help him understand that life happens when you have something else planned. He was watching a video this morning and it had musical notes flying across the screen. He said, “notes” and I told him that’s what he uses when he plays his instruments and sings. He stood next to me so I kept explaining how notes work. I told him that he could learn more songs when he learns how the keys work and the melodies with the notes. He has an amazing voice when he is singing in his real voice and not rushing through it. He harmonizes amazingly. I was super excited when he started vividly describing the toy he was playing with. He went through the designs it had on it and what it does. I love the connections he is making. He was watching more videos and started dancing. He was singing the song and said, “you gotta fly fly” and kept dancing. It’s incredible to watch him dance and I’m thankful for his growth. By the end of the day, I could tell he was feeling much better. He was playing on his pizzeria app. He ran to me and asked me for pizza for dinner. I at first thought he was just talking about it because of the app but he said, “I’m coming I gotta cook it” and took me to the kitchen. He will use my words trying to explain what he wants. He was very happy with our pizza for dinner and ate all of his. Sleep was a little hard to come by because he can’t wait to go to school tomorrow. I’m so glad he was feeling better and had a great day. The dream for tomorrow is expanding on the possibilities of today. Never give up. Keep focused on the hope for tomorrow. Smiles to all and donut daze!
