daughter 2 is having an awful time sleeping. She usually can settle with a video. We often put her on the living room couch, because she's ODD and will sneak around doing things she shouldn't if we havent' got an eye on her. This afternoon she napped. Big mistake (despite her being exhausted). Now she can't settle. We've taken the power cord from the computers, hidden things she's not supposed to get into. But she also has ADHD and just can't settle long enough to rest. we let her read, play with toys, play with clay in the room if she's relatively calm and quiet. Daughter 3 is constantly not wanting to get left out, but desperately needs more sleep. We've moved her into our room, so her sister doesn't keep her up all night. I'm sick, my husband works nights. I'm going to just have to go to bed and let her stay up. I keep telling myself, at least she's safe. She's not angry, so she's not likely to do anything truly harmful, and if she ends up sneaking into the playroom at midnight or whatever, it's truly not the end of the world. But it's so stressful when I can't figure out how to help my daughter get what she needs. And totally sucks with an ODD kid to have to let them get away with something they are not supposed to do, just because I'm desperate for sleep. But as long as she (and we) are all safe.... I don't have to be Perfect Mom, just adequate mom. Where's the Xanex?
