4 yo biting nails and overbooked


I have a 4 1/2 year old daughter that has started biting her nails in the last month or two...I have noticed she seems more aggressive/hyper/sassy than she use to be. She started pre K this year and has to go to school 5 days a week... she does ballet on Monday and soccer on Friday - she looks so tired to me all the time - so we are putting her to bed around 6:30pm and she sleeps till 7am.

Is she not getting enough sleep? Is she doing to much? Or is this just how typical 4 1/2 year old girls act? She has told me that she gets tired after lunch and they do have a rest period but she has yet to ever take a nap since it's only for about 30-45 minutes long... I am just alittle worried that we are "correcting" her too much - but she is wearing us out!
