My son sees no danger in the world. A car racing past us is the same as one sitting still. A ledge twenty feet of the ground and jumping off the couch is the same to him. And the list can go on and on. He started standing on the arms of the couch again the other day. Completely stood on it. Hands up in the air, waiting for me to respond. Now, this is one of those moments that I can’t even flinch. I told him to get down in my kindest, softest voice so he would get no thrill from my words or reaction. He absolutely has no fear or no understanding of the consequences of what could happen. Me, I have enough for both of us. I prayed that he grew out of all of this, but here we are again with the couch. I’m hoping he doesn’t remember that he used to jump from the windowsills. This morning Owen shocked me as I walked by. He stuck out his hand and somehow he made the connection that he actual caused the reaction. He’s shocked me before, but today I could clearly see he understood it happened. He then walked around the room touching things and then running to me to try to shock me again. This is one of those moments I rejoice because he’s made a huge connection, but oh my word I hope he doesn’t really figure out how to do it all the time. Through all of this my sweet baby O continues to grow and I’m trying everything I can to teach him about the world. Life is not always easy to explain but the love sure is. Find your strength, push forward, and know that you can do great things if you put your mind to it. 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.
