When we came home from vacation something really weird happened. The very first night home Baby became visibly agitated upon entering my room. She kept looking at the windows and saying "Winnows are gone."
Seriously it was weird. The windows are exactly the same as they were when we left.
"No they're not sweetie the windows are there." I said trying to reassure her, thinking she must just be confused about there being a considerable downgrade in view from our Up North digs.
"Yes they are! The winnows are GONE!" She replied adamantly.
I decided to drop it. But she kept bringing it up.
Try as I might I could not figure out what was wrong with the windows.
This has been going on for weeks.
The other night I came in the room and Baby was sitting on my bed staring at the windows and I overheard her saying...
"Stop that winnows! My mom is coming!" like she was trying to convince a bully to leave her alone.
Honestly she was starting to freak me out. I felt like we were having a Sixth Sense "I see dead people" moment.
"What's wrong with the windows?" I asked her again.
"They're gone." Came her familiar reply.
Flummoxed but desperate to figure it out I wondered if I should lower the shades (remember I made those weird faux roman shades which have been pinned in place?). She nodded emphatically.
So I did. I took out the pins in one of the shades just to see if it made a difference and she seemed relieved.
I only unpinned that one window the other one is still left in place as it had been. This didn't seem to bother her even though that was the window she was yelling at. It didn't really make any sense, but for some reason it appeased her.
Well, tonight I wanted to leave the window open so I pinned the one shade back up in place. I figured it had been a week since she'd mentioned it and maybe she was over it.
Baby walked in the room and noticed immediately.
"NO not like that!" She cried.
So I took it back down.
Then she demanded I lower the other one.
