My dd is now 21 months old and has become, in the evenings, the world's most clingy, whiny, whingy, screechy critter. She doesn't want to be put down. She doesn't want me to *do* anything but hold her and maybe read to her. Some evenings all she will accept is to be read to. She won't let her dad do this for her. Nobody else.
The result of this is a bit of mommy burn-out on my end. By the time she finally conks out I don't want to be touched or even spoken to. I need to decompress. She's finally starting to sleep better but all this carrying on beforehand makes it look like a raw deal.
Sorry. Just basically venting here and hoping this phase will end and soon. All I feel I can do is humor her and be there. I feel like I'm losing my tiny little mind though.
