Today felt more like a typical Friday but with all the extra emotions mixed in. Seems like this has been happening a lot lately. Owen woke early, wanted his tablet, and that was that. “That’s stupendous you beat the clock”, he said. He was working on one of his apps and he was winning. He wanted to go to school but he didn’t want to get ready to go. He once again was very concerned about what pants I was wearing. And what he was going to wear. We got to the bus stop and he was excitedly asking Siri lots of questions in all the languages. The bus rounded the corner and he lit up. Off he went. When he came home he was very calm. He wanted what he wanted but he was calm. The night wore on and he started talking about going to grandma’s house. He knew he was going tomorrow and he was very adamant about not going tonight. The night went on forever because he was concerned about going tomorrow. He didn’t want to take a bath and he just wanted to go to bed. But sleep did not find him. I wonder how many times you can say grandma in an hour because whatever number that is add at least a thousand on top of it. Monday is his last day of school. I’m already sad about that. He will be going to summer school but it is only for a short amount of time. It’s so hard on him when his routine is changed. Sleep did not happen. I have a feeling it will be a very long night. I sat holding him trying to comfort him but then he wanted me to go to my bed. Friday nights are so incredibly hard. I pray for sleep for us both soon. His laughter is what gets me through my days. I’m thankful he has come so far and this is just one more hurdle we will push through. Never give up on your dreams. You are worthy and can do great things. Smiles to all and donut daze!
