It was seriously a few days of
4-year-old-itis. Inflammation of the 4 year old. Seriously. They talk about the Terrible Twos, then the Threenager comes along.... what do we call the emotional and exhausting roller coaster of a 4 year old??? So Rafael is a REALLY good kid. He’s kind, empathetic, funny, willing... and he’s learning to cope with growing up and with that he’s learnt to really push the boundaries. Not just with us but with the babysitter and good friends too. I’ve always known he has retained some of his primitive reflexes, I have worked hard at trying to balance this. He regularly has Chiro, and the last few weeks I seeked the advice of paediatric guru Vanessa, at @inbornvitality and she has been working closely with him to help integrate the Fear Paralysis Reflex with regular appointments and exercises at home. Lucky I also know the amazing Maeve @soulfulsoundwaves who is an incredible energy healer and has been working on Rafas chakras, specifically his sacral chakra (hence the affirmation ‘l let go of fear/fair’ 😂). I have found juniper berry and lavender essential oils have been helping. And I’ve done what I know best, which is nutrition ... I’ve bulked up his nutrients to help support him therapeutically & efficiently through this little rough hump. Seriously though, I’ve majorly learned I can’t control him or ‘it’... I can only guide him and support him and try not to loose my shit when he gets waaaay to cray cray. The cutie is normal I know, and I love him to pieces. This was us yesterday afternoon after a huge dose of nourishment... calm, funny and adoring.
