Wonder woman

September 18, 2010

I’ve mentioned the Wonder Weeks phenomenon before – I’m not sure how much science actually backs it up, but it’s amazing how accurate it seems to be for Lady G.  The last 1-2 days she’s been very tantrumy – arching her back, unable to decide whether she wants to be on the floor, or sitting on my lap, and a little more unsettled at night.  So I used a handy online date calculator, and checked the Wonder Weeks chart someone gave me and what do you know – at 44 weeks a stormy period is likely to occur.

I’m not treating this as gospel, but I find it reassuring because it reassures me that whatever her behaviour, everything is just a phase.  She’ll pass through it sooner rather than later (just in time for the next wonder week to occur!)  But in the meantime, it’s also a good reminder that a stormy period is very likely because she’s learning and growing – and yes, getting a little frustrated and over tired at the same time – but it’s all for a good cause.

    We are glad you are finding the information useful! Yes, it is backed by science. But, more importantly, it’s also backed up by parents around the world who all experience the same thing with their little ones.

    We are thrilled that you are sharing the information with others. You (and they) can find us on Facebook (become a fan & a friend!) and on Twitter for updates, interact with other parents and ask Frans questions.
