My 3 year old DD has been acting way out of character. My nephew just got his tonsils removed last Thursday and since the day he came home she has been well, jealous. She wants to eat the foods he is eating (only soft foods of course) and I have to constantly explain to her that he HAS to have those items and that there are things that she is eating that he cannot. It ends up in a HUGE meltdown. She has been peeing her pants again (something she hasn't done in a year) talking like a baby, wants to be held and rocked by me, is mean to her sister and my nephew and will constantly push them away from me. It is getting really frustrating. I am not showing her less attention than I am showing any of the other ones...and I don't know how to handle this situation. In case you are wondering, I live with my MIL and FIL right now while hubby is deployed and they have custody of me nephew. I have questioned whether she is acting this way because grandma isn't giving her any attention since my nephew's surgery. HELP!
