One day at a time I tell myself quite often. Owen still crawled into bed with me this morning but he didn’t wake up until about five and then when he got into bed with me he slept for another hour. I’m watching my sensory baby eat his snack. He has two chairs pulled up close to his table. He is squatting with one foot on each chair, hovering there, eating his snack with one hand, and playing on his tablet with the other. Me, I’d be on the floor. He has incredible flexibility yet he doesn’t understand his body at all. Me, I have little flexibility and don’t understand my body at all either. He’s learning how his body works by watching his hands and feet move as he goes through motions. I can tell you for sure you will see life differently tomorrow. We learn from the experiences of today. Our lives can change in an instant and we can let everything impact our lives but the key is to take those moments and grow. I dwell on the woulda, coulda, shoulda beens in my life and dwelling in those moments takes away from the experiences I could be having now. Live in this moment, make the most of your life, and take charge of what you want your future to be. Every day I watch Owen grow. His words are getting stronger and he’s learning to express his emotions and feelings. I never knew what tomorrow would bring but I had faith that my son would talk. Some days begging him to talk, other days crying out to God to give him words, and other times crying in a puddle on the floor because he said, “I wuv ewe”. Tomorrow will change you. ￼We don’t have a choice on how we were born but we do get a choice on how we live. Keep believing 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.
