DBF thinks I'm the one who's nuts, so I really need a place to vent tonight. I don't know WHAT is going on with DD, but she is absolutely dreadful this week. ARGH!!!! She's pretty much acting like she's completely exhausted, all the time. TOTALLY loopy. Talking complete crazy-talk. Suddenly calling me Momma instead of Mommy. Screaming at the top of her lungs if I ask for a few minutes of quiet time. And then just laughing maniacally half the day. It feels like I can't get through this weird nutty, volatile facade to get to the real Bea. It feels like a sleep issue, but her sleep has been pretty consistent, and I really have no idea how to increase her sleep. She doesn't nap anymore (trust me...I tried everything before finally having to let it go). When she does occasionally nap, it's never more than 40 minutes, but postpones her bedtime by about 1.5 hours, so she ends up sleeping less. She has an internal alarm clock set for 6 a.m. that doesn't change no matter what. And she already goes to bed at 6 p.m. It feels ludicrous to move bedtime any earlier.
Anyway, I'm not really out here for advice because I think, I pray, that this will pass soon, but....man. This is rough.
