Poor Holly. Something went horribly wrong in her pretty little head Saturday and into Sunday night. We spent the weekend trying to calm her but every other thing just either set her off or made her cry. She cried herself to sleep Sat. and Sun. night. I am not sure what I can do. As a mom and my dh as a dad we want our kids to be happy. We want to fix things. On the other hand I don't want to give in to manipulative screaming because she wants things her way. We don't want her to feel so sad and horrible. She told us this weekend that she wishes she were never born and that she just wants to not exist. She wanted to shave her head and stab herself. It just broke my heart. We debated on taking her to the hospital and then we decided to keep an eye on her instead. Mon. and today haven't been as dramatic. I am stressed because she used to be this way when she was 3. The tantrums and crying fits I mean. I called the doctors office first thing Mon. but I haven't heard back (Then again she hasn't had any outbursts since Sunday night.) My guess is that it is part of her year end anxiety. Saturday was her dance recital-no more class until fall. She has been klingy to me Mon and today. I just took her home after her graduation. She just wanted to play quitely by herself. Life is calm today but I am sitting on pins and needles when the drama starts again.
