When the wind blows

The wind was incredible today. B. loved it and begged to stay outside. She chased leaves, picked flowers, and made a ruckus. She’s happier outside.

There was a lot of crying and carrying on every time we were inside – I know she’s on the verge of big developmental milestones, but her tempestuous nature was a little exhausting today. It feels like being in the middle of an erratic wind storm. I’m usually pretty good at getting to the root cause of both kids’ ups and downs, but her storms seem to come out of no where. And just as quickly they disappear.

  1. Maybe the wind was so arousing that she had trouble calming herself later. She’d probably never been in this situation with this much awareness and attention. Exciting and later exhausting.
