Sleep, who needs it. Owen woke at some point and I was too tired to even think about it. Plus, I knew he wasn’t feeling well. He woke early but I could tell he wasn’t himself, still sounding congested. I put Vick’s on his back and feet last night and I think that really helped him. When he woke this morning he wanted his tablet and started playing his school apps. He was spelling and reading for me without any hesitation. I love days like this where he is in learning mode. I try not to push him since he teaches himself so many things but he doesn’t always like to read or do math with me. When we went to the Clay Center the other day I could tell that he liked the science motivated experiments they had at the water table and I’ve been looking at projects we can work on. He was watching a video that showed stars in the sky and he said, “look at the starfish”. I then explained to him the difference, knowing he already knew but wanted to see what he would do next. He watched the video again and he said, “look at the not starfish up in the sky”. He cracks me up when he explains something and uses my words. He was then watching a video on pirates and they were talking about directions. I said, what to do use to tell directions. He said, “compass and rooster”. I’m not sure what the rooster does but maybe he carries the compass. He asked about church and I told him that I wasn’t sure if we would go tomorrow if he still wasn’t feeling well and he said, “I sad sick no church”. He went through spurts today that he didn’t sound as bad or hardly sneezed but he was still very clingy and we didn’t go on our bowling adventure. He wore his socks all night and when he got ready for bed he said, “socks go to bed” wanting me to put socks back on him like I did last night. I was pretty impressed with that since he has never liked to wear them at night. He fell asleep quickly and I hope that he is feeling better tomorrow. It still sounds like allergies and he hasn’t been rubbing his ears so I’m hoping it will be gone soon. I pray he rests and for not feeling well he had a good day. Find your motivation and know that you can move mountains if you believe. Smiles to all and donut daze!
