  • both my DS and DD rub their eyes and get fussy. when that happens, it's either nap time or bed time. we're on a strict schedule, so they start getting tired at the perfect time (knock on wood)

  • Younger DD gets little "bruises" at the corner of her eyes. They aren't really dark circles or bags they really just look like bruises. Big girl gets more attitude than normal.

  • I dont know, mine just drop! lol occasionally, little one gets really red around the eyes and nothing will stop his fussing, so i put him in bed.
