Another happy morning. I asked Owen if he wanted to go to more Halloween activities. He informed me “Yes more trunk or tricks” but he told me that he wanted to take birds with us. I said, birds? He said, “Yes waddle waddle.” I’m wondering if I’m learning duck or pigeon today as our language. He told me that he wanted to go find a princess and go to another party he said. I think he has got this Halloween thing down and I am loving it. He was holding two of his fingers up using his thumb. He counted to two and then said, “2 o’clock ding dong.” He knew we were going to one of his appointments and he was really happy about seeing his doctor and therapist. His bus arrived and off he went to school. I was waiting for his bus to arrive and there was a car parked in the wrong direction in front of our house. I kept praying they would pull away before Owen’s bus arrived. The person in the car cannot even begin to understand how this will affect my son. It’s a public street. They are waiting for someone and have every right to be there. But at this moment I’m watching the clock and I wish they would drive away. His bus pulled up and thankfully when he got off of the bus, he was distracted by the fact that we were going to his appointment. The bus pulled away, and he walked up our steps. He watched the bus turn the corner, and then he started looking at the car, I didn’t want him to get distracted by the car so I kept telling him to walk up the steps. He was still there for a minute and continued to watch the car and I told him that it was OK and we were getting ready to leave in just a minute. Thankfully he went inside and we got ready to go. He had a great appointment and was very glad to see them. He got a little upset because I didn’t go to the railroad tracks and gas station on the way home. He told me that in November it was going to snow and he’s still wanting snow boots but when I asked him if he was ready to see the snow he said no. When he got ready for bed, I told him to go to the bathroom. He said, “Go potty tomorrow” and I said well you should go tonight. He said, “Go potty next week.” He went and then was asleep quickly. I’m thankful for another great day. Find your strength and make today matter. Smiles to all and donut daze!
