About a week or two ago, Amanda, 17mos old, completely fell off the sleep wagon. She began waking at 10-11pm every night screaming. She would also wake sometimes at 2-3am. She has now apparently decided that she can't fall asleep at normal bedtime either.
We've ruled out all the likely causes like ear aches, teething, fever, etc.
It is now time to rely on low technology and my ability to, at least outwardly, turn my heart to stone.
It's, at least, somewhat entertaining this time around because some of the screaming vaguely resembles a long shoreman's vocabulary.
I really need to go for a run!
