Did I mention grumpy?
I’m not sure why.
Is it the diet? The supplements? The lack of sugar? The fact that her new diet and new supplements are making her need more sleep?
Or maybe just because she’s three?
You’d have to know this child to know how this behavior is totally, completely opposite of our ‘normal’ Annie. She is usually the happiest, laughing-est, clown, life of the party type of child.
But lately I’m pulling my hair out here with a clingy, crying child wrapped around my ankles most days lately, and I’m wondering who this is and where she came from. This is *NOT* my child.
What IS clear is that diet has an IMMEDIATE effect on her.
And my child who formerly didn’t require much sleep, so I thought, is sleepy and whining and rubbing her eyes.
And sleeping marathons.
Sleeping like her big sister always has. Long naps. Twelve-hour bedtimes.
And if she’s not rubbing her eyes and whining, she’s asking me if she can go take a nap.
Which blows me away.
And that’s a good thing, because Dr. Morgan’s biggest concern was that Annie has not had the sleep she has needed through the last three years for her body to repair itself and her immune system to be strong to fight off tumors and such. So, I’m thinking the supplements he gave her might be working……making her sleepier…..which is what we want…..
Many of you have asked how she’s doing or how she’s feeling, and there you have it.
