Posts Tagged ‘screaming’

The other day while in the grocery store my darling little SweetPea was experimenting with her voice and discovered how to scream. As I pushed my cart through the isles and she perfected her new found screech I realized that I was now “that parent” with “that kid” who wouldn’t stop screaming in the grocery store.

We were out shopping with my Mom and had a few more stops to go before we could head home; One of those stops being our neighborhood craft store. When we arrived my Mom and I split up, SweetPea and I heading off to the yarn section to pick out some festive fall colors for SweetPea’s new pumpkin hat I had planned on knitting her, and my Mom headed off to her own end of the store.

After a few moments SweetPea began so shriek loudly and I returned a smile to a silver haired woman who knowingly looked our way. Usually when my Mother and I are done shopping it takes a while to reconnect and make our way to the check out, but before I could even start to look for her she’d already found us having made her way across the store following the deafening sound of SweetPea’s playful cries.

Thanks to all that noise my little one was making we were able to shave moments off our trip and head on to our next destination.

My little SweetPea loves the outdoors. Now I must say “loves” doesn’t quite do justice to my daughters feeling about the outdoors, so let’s see if I can help you understand….

Imagine the biggest meltdown your child ever had pre six months of age, tears running down their face, skin bright red and blotchy as screams turn silent with intensity. Your pulse quickens as your heart hastily prompts your head to find a soothing answer, singing, rocking, hushing, a toy distraction… nothing works and the overwhelming feeling of hopelessness as you watch your baby’s sadness consume them begins to rip at your heart…

… so I walk outside.

And this little person in my arms instantly morphs from an unrecognizable bundle of unhappiness to a glowing ray of sunshine, head held high, mouth agape as goos and awes of delight float freely from her big gummy smile. There’s no other way to describe it than the miracle of the earth.

Once her love of nature had been discovered naturally we took her camping, and perched high on a hill lain on a blanket in the shade she played and laughed as goats walked by and the earth enveloped her ever sense as my doting gaze was held in rapture witnessing her embody happiness itself… and I couldn’t help but soak up some of those extra rays of sunshine and bask in her overflowing delight.
