im slightly annoyed at my 4 year old today. she had a half day at school, her sisters and i went early for her class party and took her home after. we promptly came home and had lunch (i bought her McDonald's for a treat, haven't had it in a while) and she kept bugging me for a piece of chocolate out of her candycane. I had to tell her a hundred times after she finishes her lunch, sit down, quit playing in the chair before you hurt yourself, etc etc. I realize she's probably both tired and excited from the party at school and coming home early. Now it's naptime, as I was getting the other two down i told her i'd be right there to tuck her in. meanwhile i heard her playing with this apple toy. when i went in there, i shut it off and hid it and told her no loud toys, it's naptime. she was really crabby too, she didn't want a hug or kiss or even her monkey. anyway now i hear her playing with the damn toy i specifically told her not to! but she's atleast in bed, so should i just let her be? most likely she'll fall asleep playing with it. or should i go in there and put my foot down about it? it seems like i have to get on her all the time about everything. im wondering if i should start "picking my battles". the only battles she wins is food ones, i let her decide if shes hungry or not.

Why don't you take her outside and wear her out running around the yard while the others are trying to get to sleep? She was hyped up from several things...Party...off school early...McDonalds food and chocolate. Give her a nice glass of milk or water to dilute all thatstuff she consumed.
