the crying-whineys.<br><br>
I just CAN'T.<br><br>
dd#3 was up too late last night and then woke too early today (why do they always go together like that?)<br><br>
She is surly, miserable and generally disagreeable.<br><br>
I know all she needs is some sleep, but nap is a four-letter word around here (ask her younger brother, who also won't nap).<br><br>
I know it's not her fault, she can't control her emotions, but right now I want to bury one of us in the backyard. Doesn't matter which at this point, as either way it will mean I can't hear said crying-whineys anymore.<br><br>
She needs a hug too, but every time I get near her she flails at me. I think she's worried I'm going to sit on her or something until she falls asleep. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

OMG, I'm right there with you. My dd is younger than yours, but she cries/whines CONSTANTLY. She doesn't want to nap either, and the only way she'll sleep lately is if she's gnawing on my nipples all night. Not her fault, but I want to scream! You have my sympathy.

My 4 yr old has mastered the art of whining as well. I'm very patient, nothing else phases me, but whining drives me freaking nuts! She started doing it when the naps ended, too. When she's tired, you can tell. She's been not sleeping well this past week and it has sucked for me at night AND all day!<br><br>
I feel your pain!!!
