How many animals and vegetables live on the farm, a lot of them. Except for the ones that don’t. This is the new thing I have to keep straight. Some animals are allowed on the farm and some need to go live in the water and numerous other places. The good news Owen is learning about all types of animals and their natural habits. Today he asked for all the places we can’t go yet, but when I asked him if he wanted to go see our friends he said no and ran to play on his tablet. My sensory dude was in full swing as the day wore on and I had to remind him about going to the potty. And if you ain’t played toilet paper basketball you ain’t living it up in the bathroom. Owen will stand as far back as he can from the toilet, taking the toilet paper from me or grabs some randomly, and then tries to do a far away version of a slam dunk. This delights him to no end, but as soon as I go to flush the toilet his hands immediately go to cover his ears. Sometimes he will cup his hands over his ears and move them back and forth like he is trying to hear the echo. He doesn’t act like the noise completely bothers him, but more like he wants to amplify it. And then he started singing a song in French mixed with a rendition of an English old MacDonald song that had a parrot, serpent, and vegetable. He was happy and that’s what mattered. He has been going through all his school apps and I know it’s started some of his anxiousness again. I dream of the days of calm for my baby and then I remind myself of one day at a time. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Let the journey for your happiness begin now. 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.
