Yesterday the weather was NICE all day long. Towards the end of the day, ominous skies predicted rain, and a visit to the weather channel showed that we were in for a thunderstorm.
We went to soccer practice and all was well the first half, but come part deux, the winds started to really pick up. Of course little man didn't have a hat on, it was still nice and warm, just windy as all get out. He came off the field tugging at an ear, and I knew what was in store.
Sure enough, he and I were up all night fighting a fierce ache in his ear and a fever. He got about two hours of sleep all night long, and I got even less.
Have you heard of winter allergies? Or does anyone have a child who just doesn't fare well with windy and/or cold weather? I have four kids and it's my very first time going through such a thing. I feel bad for my little one. Seems you should be able to enjoy being out and about whatever the weather or season!
