A 4 yr old knows exaclty what buttons she is pushing when she throws tantrums like that.  I send mine to her room or to time out until she calms down or behaves.  Good Luck! 

FYI--Theres a group called Night Owls for Night Shift working Mamas like you (and me)!

Oof, days like that do require venting! 

Sometimes when my kids get crazy like that and I'm in a bad mood, I put on my big girl panties and take them all to the park or something where they can be crazy kids. Sometimes that helps to rest the mood.

Seems like 4 and 5 year olds go through phases like this sometimes. Good luck! Hope you can get some sanity back!

Ugh, I am so sorry. I really struggle with some nuclear meltdowns in my house too. It makes for long days.

Night shift is so brutal. get some rest!
