My daughter is cyclical. No, she isn't training for the Tour de France. She goes through distinct phases, like her dad who bowled obsessively until he smacked himself in the ankle with the ball enough to stop. Now he's all about the weeds in the yard. He'll get up at 6am on a day he could sleep in just to sweat over some crab grass.
Bella's current cycle involves ear lobes. Whether hers or someone she loves, when Bella is tired, sad or bored, she goes for the lobes. It is strange and sweet, though also annoying when I'm trying to get ready for the day and she's asking for my ear lobes. Sometimes, if I deny her lobe clinging, she throws a tantrum...another great sign she'll be two next week!
So, I guess my question (concern?) is, will she always be this way? Ear lobes now, boys later? Hey, don't think the jump is that far fetched!
To make me feel better, what are some cycles your kid has gone through and gotten over? While I await your answers, Bella will rub my ear lobes.
