The thunder is getting me June 12, 2010

It’s that stormy time of the year where we seem to get storms every other day and they always seem to come at night.  Couple of nights back we get a really loud storm at some point in the early hours of the morning.  Enough to wake Kara and myself (to be fair Kara was probably already up feeding Layla!).  Then suddenly we heard Hayden.  First he was just talking or squeaking, but then he started crying after a really loud thunder bang.  This was the first time he had done thi, normally he just sleeps through.

I went in to check on him and he just turned to me, all sad and said “the thunder is getting me daddy!”.   Poor little guy.  I explained to him that the noise was just the clouds banging together and that they were just having a party at an unsociable hour (something he will understanding in a few years time).  Then he just told me that the “clouds were silly”  and laid down and went to asleep even though it was flashing and banging away outside!
