The kid is still in school half days, but only for another week and a bit before the break. Grandma and Grandpa are getting her pretty soon. We’re going to be surrounded by family, celebrating. Warm and cozy.
Christmas is coming and she’s excited.
And she isn’t falling asleep until late and she’s still waking up early and she’s full of energy and bouncing off the walls almost all the time. Sometimes literally. She’s full of questions and demands and nothing keeps her occupied for very long. She wants attention.
A lack of sleep seems to only fuel her. After a full day she can still bounce around her bedroom for hours before finally falling asleep.
I wish I could just pick her up in my arms, give her a bottle and rock her, enveloped by dark and music, so that she can fall asleep peacefully, blissfully, easily.
I know that everything would be easier for her during the day if she had an easier time at night, but I don’t know what steps to take. Every time we create a new routine and we think it’s working we have to start all over again.
Will there ever stop be complications and frustrations with you, little girl?
