With the recent storms we have had, one of my little men has been having trouble coping. He loves the rain but hates the thunder. It just scares him to hear all that rumbling and tumbling in the sky.
I was delighted to see him solve his own problem.
He came to me with an ipod asking if he could wear it so he would not be able to hear the thunder.
Normally I would not allow a little one to wear an ipod for several hours at a time but this was a special circumstance and he happily sat on our couch listening to music and loving the storm!
No tears, no screams just a happy cherub bopping away to music.
With the first week of the school holidays down and our family spending time shopping, cleaning and preparing for family to arrive it has been a little 'stressful' to say the least.
It has been a blessing to have a little icecream in the freezer.
A small bowl of icecream seems to calm the nerves, unite the family, help us talk and connect with each other again and sweeten the taste buds.
A small gift for hard work and a simple quick fix that feels like it solves all family problems.
