Where did our routine go!???
My daughter will be two in December and recently she has started to fight any kind of routine that we have ever had! She won't take her afternoon nap without a horrific tantrum and even then somedays she just won't go to sleep. Also at night she just won't go to sleep she'll just lay there and I know she's tired because she's acting crazy and as soon as I leave the room she starts screaming and crying until I go back in there and then she'll fall asleep because she's worn herself out enough with the crying. What am I supposed to do? I feel like I'm going nuts or something. I need my alone time at night after she's asleep to take care of myself and when her bedtime used to be at 8-8:30 and is now anywhere from 9:00 to MIDNIGHT I just don't know what to do? Is it possible that she doesn't need an afternoon nap anymore? It seems like she does o.k. without it but she does better with the nap and acts happier. Is this just a phase or something? Can someone give me some answers please.
