It’s October. My mom and I were talking yesterday and we both agree we think October is Owen’s favorite month. This brings me happiness and just a teeny tiny bit of sadness that he can’t tell me that himself but it’s in his words and actions. Routine, can we take a minute to celebrate routine? We slept until 5:55. I’m not sure which one of us woke up first but I’m thankful. He was ready for church the minute he woke up. “Church church,” he said to me as soon as he saw me. He was in a good mood. He ate his breakfast, wanted a second breakfast, and then asked for chips before we even got ready for church. I started asking him what he wanted to wear to church and before I got past “shorts” he said, “jeans.” So much progress. He tried to tell me what I was wearing and I told him I wasn’t sure. I didn’t let him take his tablet to church. I’m trying to get him to understand we don’t need it everywhere. When we got there he said it was time for pumpkins. He did good at church except some of his favorite people weren’t there and he told me he missed them. He saw the Trunk or Treat sign and said, “It’s trick or treat” and started listing off his favorite people and things to do. He didn’t want to go to the playground or get food. I think he would have gone to the playground if there had been mud or he had brought his tablet. He did talk about going to the tractors and getting dinner with his grandma one day this week but I’m pretty sure I know how that will go unless I can convince him otherwise. I told him we weren’t driving everywhere today so he was pretty ok about that except he wanted to pull my hair so he could apologize. He wants glue. Lots of glue and I’m not sure if he wants to make something or pour it on himself. Both things have been talked about. The rest of the night was filled with lots of food and not wanting to go to bed but wanting his Monday to start. I pray for more sleep. I’m thankful for his laughter and his big smile. Find your happiness and share it with the world. Smiles to all and donut daze!
