    explosion of a child

    After read the next paragraph of a biograpy describing the author when was a baby, I could't understand why author said he was a explosion of a child: I was a bit of an explosion of a child. Small, with slender shoulders and legs that seemed skinnier than my wrists. My hair was long and moplike, usually flopping over my eyes like a crappy, blond curtain. I was quiet and then devastatingly loud. My eyes were far too big for my face and usually found their way toward the floor until I knew for sure that you liked me.

    In Porguese, an explosive person is temperamental and anger. I think this is not the case.

    I think the person means that their odd proportions made them like as if they were bursting.
