Sleeping has mostly been great lately except on Fridays when Owen is preparing himself to see his grandma on Saturdays. This is where I have to decide what I should prepare him for and what I should keep to myself until it happens. I prepared him for going to his well check today but then it didn’t happen. I started talking to him about it yesterday and then when he woke up I told him that I would pick him up from school. Well, life happens when you have something else planned. The doctor’s office lost power so they had to reschedule for October. I let his teacher know that he would be riding the bus home instead. I was torn if I should still go pick him up because that’s what he was expecting but he loves to ride the bus and I knew his teacher would explain it. We were going to dinner one day this week with my parents. It was going to be today after our appointment. He said when he came home he didn’t want to go today. Tuesdays and Wednesdays are always hard to convince him to go anywhere. I told him that was fine but he had to decide which day he wanted to go with them. Now as life goes this day may have to change too. He said he wanted to go tomorrow. On Saturday we are going for a swimming lesson. I’m trying to gauge how much I should tell him about it and when I should mention the timing of it. I told him we were going to the swimming pool soon for another lesson but I didn’t say the specific date. He will be very excited about it but he may not be going to see his grandma on Saturday. They possibly have plans so things would have to change. These are all good learning experiences for him. Plans changing on him can be hard but he is making huge strides. I was excited he wanted to play his harmonica and he asked me to sing. He is learning so much. The night went quickly. He sat on the couch looking at his harmonica. I always wonder what he is thinking about. I dream of all the possibilities for my son and one by one he is accomplishing great things. I tell him all the time he can accomplish anything he sets his mind to. Believe in yourself and the rest will follow. 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.
