Breaking Wind

Overwhelmed is the word of the day week.  The planned items that don't go as well as you expected.  The unplanned items which go better than expected.  These past few days have been filled with planning in ways we, well, didn't plan for.

Now don't get me wrong, I do think that everything happens for a reason.  I also believe that we don't have bad days, just harder ones.  I do try to remember these great sayings when the going gets tough, but there is always one thing that is guaranteed to make it go away, even if just for a few minutes....Breaking Wind!

No, no, not THAT kind of wind.  This is the moment in which you roll down all the windows in the car and pop open the sunroof and play your favorite tune and just drive.  If you play it right, you even drive a different route to gain a minute or two more of your breaking wind adventure.

Breaking wind was coined by my now 7 year old when he was 4.  He loves to ride with the wind blowing on his face.  Just like his Mom, he feels the relaxation and release this simple task provides.  It was him this afternoon that asked, "Mama, can we roll the windows down and play your music loud?  Can we break wind Mom?"  I guess he felt it this afternoon too.
