Maybe she's having a growth spurt?

The past couple of weeks have been awful. No matter what time DD goes to bed, if I wake her up early for school she's grouchy. I put her to bed at 9 last night and she just woke up a little bit ago and I told her it was time for breakfast and bath and she crawled back into bed, said she was tired, and went back to sleep. She's going on 13 hours of sleep now.

  • Could be? I would keep an eye on her. There are alot of nasty things going around, from flu to strep. I would take her temp when she wakes up and keep an eye on it. If she doesnt have a temp then its probably a growth spurt.

  • Sounds like a growth spurt....Make sure she is eating really nourishing foods.
