So my cute little Jenner is such a fashionista...she especially loves shoes. This is common for toddlers but she is unusually obsessed...like when she threw a FIT because she wanted to wear her black patent leather shoes (Yeah, the Christmas kind)...in 80 degree weather...with shorts and a t-shirt...much to my shagrin...and I gave in and let her do it! Or take last night for example...she again threw a FIT because she wanted to wear her sandals to bed...and we let her...she has now had them on for over 24 hours...crazy kid! She will even find her shoes that are too small and wear them...even when you can tell they hurt her when she walks...what do I do...LAUGH I guess!!!
Now for the advice...If you know my Taylor than you know that we have had some issues with her...she has a little anxiety and she can't communicate her emotions very well. This has resulted in her not being able to go to sleep and when she does...she sometimes sleep walks. We have tried some herbal supplements for the sleep thing like Calm's Forte for kids and sometimes Benedryl. Basically it's all in her head and she wants to take a pill to make her sleep. I think she's too little to be taking pills but when it's 11:00pm at night and she still isn't asleep...what do you do? This issue has become quite a big deal around here...she is grounded for the whole day today because of it...and I made her do extra chores around the house...in hopes of her deciding that it's not worth it and to just go to sleep...When she walks out of her room 3-5 times a night whining that she can't go to sleep, it completely infuriates me...she usually gives herself 15-20 minutes to fall asleep and then bawls because she can't...we think she isn't giving it enough time. We have even talked to her on numerous occasions about it and given her ideas and such but, it's still going on and I am literally at the end of my rope...Anyone want a 10 year old girl? Anyways...if you have any advice, ideas or a fresh outlook on this...PLEASE HELP ME!!!
