Awful behaviour thanks to Christmas
It appears that the excitement of Christmas has turned my usually very well behaved little girl into a little demon! She is normally so well behaved but since she broke up from school for the Christmas holidays she has been on a very short fuse. The slightest thing I ask of her she is throwing herself on the floor and refusing to do it. We've had sulking, strops, snatching... she is never normally like this!
Usually during the school holidays I love our time together and this is the first time that I've actually been counting the days down for her to go back. This makes me feel really guilty but she is behaving so poorly, it's like I'm walking on egg shells wondering when the next time will be that she will become cross with me and start to tell me off for asking her to do the smallest of things.
I think that the excitement of Christmas is to blame. She has just been overwhelmed with all of the presents, socialising and being completely out of routine. It really has been a very exciting time for her and I'm sure she is just shattered from it all... but will she stay in bed any longer than normal? nope!
I'm hoping that returning to school on Monday will help her to settle back into her usual lovely self... anyone else been the same?!
