02 μικρο-μακρο (Micro-Macro)


[photo removed]

After we got a whole bunch of rain in October, we took the boys on a tour of the neighborhood to see the damage. In retrospect, maybe not such a good idea; Noah's separation anxiety began shortly thereafter. It took a professional to see that connection. We thought we were just helping our kids be explorers.

It's so hard to know what's going to impact them. We will do something that we just know Little Elvis will love, and most times it only serves to upset him and give us endless questions to attempt to answer.

Yes - so true! And then you have another one who responds (yet) differently!

I was wondering whatever happened with the separation anxiety. I hope it continues to get better. My 6-year-old quizzes us about weather-type destruction. The flooding has been a big source of concern for him. Luckily, we can tell him that we live on a hill. But then he's concerned about his grandparents and whether or not they could experience flooding. He's also VERY concerned about fire alarms and monitors fire drills at school (usually telling me that it was a good day because there was NO fire drill). And his sister seems totally oblivious. On the other hand, she freaked out today because of my sock selection, then because I wouldn't let her take a toy to pre-school, then because her favorite teacher wasn't there. These kids.
