We call them Old Wives’ Tales, but there must be some truth to them. For, why would such a tale transmit through the generations, from place to place, person to person?
One particular teacher, a seasoned veteran, and I used to compare notes on our students’ behavior in relation to the phase of the moon. In other words, a full moon meant crazy kids.
I extended that prediction to rainy days as well. A drop in the barometric pressure caused children’s brains to ooze our their ears.
Which is about what is happening to my just-returned-from-school children right now.
Oh, my aching Old Wife’s head.

There is some truth in what you say about the barometric pressure and the full moon phase. It does seem to be the case when these two things occur, but don’t despair; things will get better when the moon goes out of full moon phase and the sun comes out. At least I know I feel better when the sun is shining and the kids can go out and play.
Praise the Lord for sunshine! Today was so much better!
