It sounds horrible to say this - but it feels like in two weeks she has gone from a friendly, gentle, sleeping through the night and full of smiles happy kid - to hitting her friends back (she never used to hit back) waking once or twice a night crying and screaming, walking up to the dog or my sister and waking them in the face! Screaming at strangers and the dreaded TANTRUM THROWING!! And I thought I was going to be one of those fabled mums who has a kid without the tantys!
She is also pulling her clothes off in front of people and in her cot which can be very messy if she gets to a nappy before I do. She is shouting at others and being all round CRAZY its gotten to the point now - where im afraid everytime we step out she's going to loose the plot at me, or even worse A STRANGER! I keep thinking the horrible weather at the moment may have something to do with it, and us being stuck inside a little more than usual - but surely this cant be to blame for ALL the mood/behavioral changes..
I am about to start walking with her again before dinner to try tire her out - any other suggestions? Im at my witts end and feel like I need a week long tropical holiday for the first time since I've had her!!
