I can tell you I am never quite sure what day it is or what direction I’m going. Owen woke at “three in the I’m too sleepy to think morning” and asked for his teacher. I seriously had to think about what day it was and what I needed to say. I quickly said it’s nighttime and told him we needed to go back to sleep that it would be Saturday. He started talking to me about the coffee shop and bowling. I put a squash to the talking and told him we had to go to sleep. One of us followed the rules, the other wanted to talk about his day. Luckily about an hour later he fell back asleep. He woke an hour later asking about the day again. And I had to think if I had slept for a whole day. He was ready to go and I was in slow motion. In the last few days, I feel like he has made incredible progress; asking for things he wants and doing things he hasn’t done before. I’m amazed we are still on the potty train with no derailments during the day and only two times he’s been wet at night but with the Depends guard to the rescue. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders even though I’m so very stressed. Owen’s smile gets me through my days. He keeps me inspired even when I’m having those rough moments. I’m learning to focus more on the positive side of life and that we will get through this together. Every day I see a little more of the miracle unfolding and I know that Owen will accomplish great things. I’m so excited by how far he has come and I reflect on the big changes he has made. Never give up on the miracle yet to be seen. Find your strength and keep pushing forward. 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.
