We have a lot of hours to fill up in day. We have our normal routine things like making lunch together, reading, and going for walks, but the days seem so, so long now. There is nothing to break up the day.
I think this is a small part of a bigger problem. No one is getting any sleep. O seems to get through her mornings and afternoon by going from intense activity to another. She does school work, she does artwork, she makes sand castles. All of these are very intense activities for her. Then she can't seem to get herself to calm down. I make a point of starting to wind down several hours before bed, but she just doesn't want to go to bed without saying goodnight to her daddy.
